I had a look at your website James and found it amazing
that your organisation offers, amongst other things,
Internet Marketing services. A fundamental issue in
Internet marketing is Search Engine and Search Directory
optimisation - guess I'm puzzled. You will receive an
amazing amount of email regarding your question since it
is common knowledge that you NEVER use submission services
to achieve a listing on Yahoo or Open Directory (not that
you mentioned Open Directory - a key access point to
Anyhow submission services are loosing credibility since
automatic submission is now being blocked by a majority
of the SE's. The best and only real way of achieving good
rankings (assuming your site is optimised - and you are
using Microsoft Frontpage 4.0?) is to manually submit to
the key SE's and Directories.
A tip - you can try to submit to Yahoo at the Australian
URL - there are no charges here!
