Question Have you used a web site submission service before?

I spent some money today on a web site submission service. There are lots of these services out there. What they do is submit your website address and a description of your site to search engines all over the planet.

Has anyone had any success with this type of advertising before?

I started the service today. I also found Retouch Pro today, so it is hard for me to tell what the increase of traffic to my site is from. But i have gotten a big spike in traffic.

Of course the real measurement is done in sales.

Are you refering to software that submits your site to numerous search engines? I used Wolf Pro but I don't think that really paid off much.

I used one for my first personal website, an Angelfire vanity monstrosity, a few years ago. It worked to a certain extent, but the place I used apparently gave/sold its information to (ahem) "adult" listing services, too. I had some extremely bizarre search engine referrals after I did it.

Suffice it to say that "animal-lover" in my meta keywords information appealed to a particular set of people in a way I never intended.
