"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Just go to the relative sites, e.g. www.Yahoo.com, etc.  and look for a link called "Add your site" or something along those lines and submit your information.  Your site will probably get listed within a week or two.  Email info@cititech.net if you need help marketing your product to hundreds of search engines.

Hope this helps.

Listening for more.... protocol, however, is to comment vs. answer and allow the person who paid for the question to invite answers.  Especially true when subjective nature comes to play in the content of the question.  Oh well, perhaps Website Robs answer does indeed serve you best.  The downside to answering vs. commenting, is that the question is now locked and solicits less input, minimizing coverage and participation.

astaec, you must be new to the board? The protocol is to give answers to questions. If a person is not sure of their answer, then yes, comments and feedback can be helpful.

Most people just want an answer that fits their problem and if they don't like the answer, or it doesn't work, then they can reject it. When the feeling is that your information solves the problem, then submit it as an answer and get the question closed. There will be lots more coming.

Sorry!

Have to disagree on submitting answers vs. comments.  As astaec points out, submitting an answer has the effect of "closing the discussion", as many of the experts do not look at questions which are locked for answer (unless they have participated in the discussion).

In it's current implementation, the board apparently offers the option to the questioner to accept a comment as an answer at any time (I have not yet tried this from the questioner perspective), so submitting an answer as quickly as possible is not really necessary.

Submitting an answer (good, bad, or indifferent) also closes the option of deleting a question which has no real satisfactory answer to the questioner, except by bothering the (overworked) Customer Service people.

Finally, what you may think solves the problem may not meet the questioner's full problem (I find that frequently the questioner doesn't really know what the real question is).

If all we are here for is to try to close questions as rapidly as possible, I would hope there is another site where discussion is promoted.  I see a major benefit of the site as an area where a number of qualified individuals can provide useful information from the almost endless amount of it which is available.  I have learned an incredible amount by answering questions and reading ongoing discussions.

I see no need (and little value) in trying to close out a question as quickly as possible without offering the possibility of alternate solutions or additional input.

MHO, unless the information is "unequivocable", I would submit a comment and let the questioner (who "paid" for the privilege) decide when the answer is sufficient or acceptable.

In YOUR defense, I have seen some areas of the board where your attitude is the prevailing one, and, at one time, Customer Service also agreed (they may still feel that way, I don't know).

In the areas which I frequent, it tends to be the 'newbies' who are quick to answer questions and the more experienced who tend to comment and wait.

Sorry for pontificating.  Enough.

And I would have to state that my comments on Protocol are exactly correct. This is not a discussion or chat room. People come here looking for answers - to problems. And my experience is they want them ASAP.

If you re-read what I said about potential answers, you will see what I mean. Don't forget that alot of people "take" answers without giving points to anyone. Or an answer is given as a Comment, and the Questioner does not have the curtisey to advise that the Comment can be submitted as Answer for awarding points.

Look in almost any Catagory at how many Questions are still open. It is the responsibilty of the Questioner to respond when potential Answers are giving and decide what to do with it.

I appreciate your point of view Tom, but must reiterate that people are here for answers, and the sooner the better.

Any update, Kevinc29?

Sorry to learn of Potent's dismay; no ill-will intended on my part.  If I may clarify, Ttom's input aligns to my understanding of the ideal process at Experts-Exchange as well with the ultimate goal of providing superior and expeditious solutions.  All participants benefit some by the process because of the diversity and varying experiences.  Personally, here to learn and HELP FIND NOT THE ONLY, BUT THE BEST SOLUTION for our client(s).  When I first discovered E-E, recommended the total elimination of answers due to the roadblocks they created in the timeline; having asked many questions myself.  The interim solution delivered to allow conversion of comment to answer by the person  asking the question is a good start.  All the more reason to at least consider using comments vs. answers.
