    So you should make a long list before submitting, that saves you some time!

    I only have about 20 terms right now, but I will try and add some more if I can think of any good terms.

    Evidently lots of webmasters think of their
    searchterms over the weekend.

    I've found that when I submit my new
    search terms to goto on a sunday or monday,
    it's usually 3 or 4 days before they're
    up and running.

    If, however, I submit on Thursday, they're
    very often up by Friday.

    Just a thought. Maybe isolated incidences.
    I don't know.

    Hello Members!

    Another question! How do you change your personal info on goto.com?

    thanks!

    Goto is now working during weekends too so the response time has increased greatly. I get my listing withing 24 hours now. the initial submission usualy takes 4 days

    I just opened a goto account today. I ran into a technical problem though. You know that real long page where you submit your individual search terms? Well I was always getting error messages telling me to go back and fix my listings. Even when I fixed them as directed, I would still get the error message and it would not let me proceed. The only way I could proceed was by signing up for a single search term instead of the fifteen I started with. Anybody aver run into that problem?

    I didn't bother... I am so beaten down by services that dont respond to tech support requests

    I'll try 'em again with another bunch after the first one gets processed (I havent heard back yet) and if I experience it again, I'll shoot them a message. Thanks 123.

    i found it take 2-3 days also, but an important think is to submit many terms from the beginign, because i have like 5, (cant think of more)and im triying to add more now, because im not getting any traffic.

    I guess it was just a temporary technical glitch I experienced. I got an approval notice like 2 days after the submission. Then I went back and effortlessly applied for more terms. So far so good.
