Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
well that's all right then. My suggestion to you would be to take the Adsense off your site while you use these various semi-automated systems to submit your site to search engines.
Get your site in as many directories as possible, exchange links with some people and then wait. While you are waiting read and re-read the Adsense rules.
When you start to get some good traffic - put the ads back on.
Directories, reciprocal links, paid links etc. But you'll really need to take the time to submit individually - it takes time. This is all IMO - other people will have other advice.
Hi Rajun, just a little unsolicited advice - be cautious about your friends indiscriminately clicking on your ads at this point. Given that you only have a few visitors right now, G can easily see a 'pattern' and conclude that you've asked your firends to click on your ads. I've read about some people being booted out of Adsense for that.
It is best to submit to all the major search engines by hand and save auto for lesser directories. Hand submit to dmoz also.
<edit> and NEVER NEVER NEVER tell friends and family you are running pay per click ads or they will try to help you out and you will wind up out of Google adsense!
There was a time when you could just be on the web, and all the engines would find you with their cystal ball. But, then I bought all the crystal balls and now they have to have clues to find sites.
ugh. double ugh
