Well, the guy who operates this forum(Jim) sells site promotion software. From the looks of this site I'd say he knows what he is doing. I'd give his stuff a try. I also use Mac so I can't use it, but I'm about to get a PC so I'll pick up a copy.

On the subject of site promotion in general. I only submit sites and pages to Alta Vista, Hot Bot, Excite,Lycos, Infoseek, WebCrawler and Yahoo. I operate under the assumption that these major search engines cover about 90% of all searches(anybody?).

For seven search engines I don't need automated submission software.

I use a good text editor , BBedit, and do the keywording and page preperation by hand. I really don't believe any program will be able to keyword as well as a reasonably intelligent person who understands the intended audience for a website and how to prepare the site to attract that audience.

Once I've prepared the site the actual submission process usually takes me less than 2 minutes(except Yahoo which can take up to six months).
