    If I submit each individual page to the search engine (each every 45 days or so), will that penalize me in some way? Does it depend on the search engine I am submitting to? Would it be wise just to submit my main site once every 45 days and let the spiders do the rest?

    Thanks in Advance!

    What search engine?

    It's not worth 5 minutes of your time.

    Is that a fact? I thought submitting to Inktomi did a pretty good job unless it was coincidence.

    Anybody else have any opinions on this?

    Oh sorry. Inktomi rocks

    Google as well, but "submitting" is not the proper way to submit. Submit by getting inbound links from other sites That'll do ya.

    Pardon me I assumed Sorry about that. Usually when somebody says "submitting to search engines" "over and over" they are talking about submitting to Lycos and Altavista and countless other carcasses.

    And no need to submit and resubmit to Inktomi; the spider will pass every 48 hours.

    I had the same experience with Inktomi, last month.

    I submitted via INeedHits. When nothing happened for awhile and I bugged them, they claimed they'd found a bug in the Inktomi software that had caused the delay, but never did explain what it was.

    It took about 10 days before I finally got "processed."

    I suppose in the big picture that amount of delay doesn't matter, but quick response was one of the reasons I went with them.

    Since you are from Earth I will reply to you now..

    I was just use to do the same, submit each individual page to the search engine, but after I let the search engines find me, I'm doing better on some pages (I got about 300 pages on one site and it is not easy to be submitting one by one)

    Now I'm on the top 10 on some search engines for FREE, just by not getting desperate and now I just playing the build the page now and google, msn and Inktomi will find me, I still have not paid for any key word jet and I'm OK, not that rich, but OK. (for now) I just waiting to see the outcome of cj and vc venture for now.

    Patience is a virtue with submitting pages to the SE's. For Google, you don't really have to anything. Get a couple of good inbound links and you'll be all set in a month or two. For the other SE's, it can be a crap shoot - AV takes in half my site as does AllTheWeb, but Inktomi (which spiders EVERY page EVERY day - the free way - eating up my bandwidth in the process) never quite gets around to actually listing the site in their SERPS. Only have 200 pages of a 3300 page website in INK, and it's been that way for many months despite constant deep spidering by the INK spider.
