Hi everyone.

I have about six websites in total now, and I quite enjoy building them myself now that I have the knowledge and the confidence to go it alone.

My first two sites were put together using Ken Evoy's Site-Build-It, which is great for the novice with no experience whatsoever. It is all done automatically with submitions and search engine reports done througha control panel.

My question is this:

Does SBI violate Google's terms of service relating to the paragraph:

"Don't use unauthorized computer programs to submit pages, check rankings, etc. Such programs consume computing resources and violate our Terms of Service. Google does not recommend the use of products such as WebPosition Gold™ that send automatic or programmatic queries to Google."

I am of the opinion that my two websites at SBI are going to be dropped one day!

Concerned

Gary

Search engine promotion in terms of adding your url is very much depreciated these days. The key is to have as many links from other websites pointing to your pages. Google and other search engines will then be able to find your site via these links. If you do this there really is no need to manually or automatically add your site to Google or any other search engine.
