    Directory submission software

    Anyone recommend a software that automates submission to worthwhile, middle-ranking directories i.e. not FFA pages? I'm OK for the biggies like Google (which spider a site).

    I'm happy to pay for it.

    There is lots....but it doesn't help a thing. Just hand submit to the big guys once, get quality incoming links and forget about auto submisions. Get incoming links from directories too but submit by hand

    I don't want to spend hours/days doing repetitive (re)submissions for 4 domains by hand. If $70-120 bucks will save me that chore, well worth it, I say.

    How about this one?

    It's interesting that you can add your own engines:

    Submission software does not work. Most of submissions are simple deleted or blocked so you will get nowhere. Free directories exist in order to generate traffic that will then click on their ads. By using the software you are skipping the step that is crucial to their survival so do you really think they will accept those kind of submissions? If you want to do it right, do it yourself and do it manually. If you want to waste $100 and think it was a worthwhile investment that's your business.

    I have told people so many times, but I think they just have to find out for themselves.

    I would have thought that any directory relying on webmaster clicks only would be very poor, very quickly.

    There was a web-site that listed all the directories, with the submission pages' URLs, but I can't remember the address. If the site-list matched that in one of those programs, I'd get it.

    Yes, that's a very good link.

    See what I mean? There's loads of 'em. Software was invented to automate tedious tasks, so I was hoping there'd be one decent one, of all the programs out there, to automate submissions to semi-decent directories.

    I'll have a look at Web Ceo. Thanks for that.

    I can offer a service that does hand submission. We charge $1 per submission, and provide full reports of everything that was submitted, including a link to the page where the site would be expected to appear.

    I actually do this for my own sites, and have setup a good system to make the submitters job easy, and I have someone who works for me that does this quite often.
