    There are a ton of free online tools and websites that let you submit your links on their sites and they submit your sites to hundreds, even thousands, of search engines. Do you use any of these tools? I've never given into any of it because in my eyes it's just a waste of time. The bigger search engines have bots that crawl websites and index them. The smaller search engines grab their results and information from the bigger search engines. Why waste time? Yes it will be submitted quicker, maybe, but you can use that time for other things, right? What's your take on these tools?

    Search engine submission is totally tine waste. It was good when back to year 1997 but not now because the search engine technology is good enough to crawl the new website.

    In general, a complete waste of time. There may be a (very small) handful of extremely small and technically challenged vertical search engines where it may make sense, but I haven't even come across one of those in a number of years.

    If the search engines can't find your site through other means, they still won't value it enough to index it once they are aware of it through a submission. A small amount of off page promotion will have a far more dramatic impact on crawling and indexing activity for a site.

    I don't use any. I just submit my site to Google and it's fine with me. I mean, I wouldn't waste my time on those sites.
    Besides, even though I don't make any submissions on them, I even get visits from Yahoo, Bing and even Ask.com.

    No need to submit directly so I agree with the others. One thing that I do is once I have a new webpage or blog post, I submit it to Digg and the search engines will go from there since Digg is such a popular site.

    At first, I mostly get my visitors from Digg. But lately, since some of my posts are ranking well on search listings, my digg submissions tend to be pushed down...

    I think search engine submission is not useful. It's a worthless and useless for search engine submission.

    Why do you feel this way? Elaboration would be nice and maybe even helpful to others.

    Why do you think about that? Is your site not indexed for some reasons?

    Search Engine Submission was the oldest way to tell the Search engines that we have launched new site and now check it but now Search Engines find itself.

    One vital tip with link building, make it look natural!

    Otherwise you may run the risk of potential problems down the line. As an SEO, I spend around 45% of my working week link building, it's just one of those timely tasks that you need to do right.

    I would agree, and I did too not long ago to be honest. Too willing to post links anwhere just to build backlinks. Though my forum ended up being PR2, so not sure how much harm it did.

    It's not really a waste of time. Once you submit to Google, others will definitely follow. No need to submit to all of them. Besides, have you thought on how many people are using other search engines besides Google, Yahoo and Bing?

    I am agree with you Jerlene. Once we got good results in bigger search engines like Google, yahoo, bing than we will automaticaly get good results in other smaller search engines too.

    Search engine submission is how a webmaster submits a web site directly to a search engine. While Search Engine Submission is often seen as a way to promote a web site, it generally is not necessary. Because the major search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing use crawlers, bots, and spiders that eventually would find most web sites on the Internet all by themselves.

    Does this always happen automatically though?
