Resubmission to search engines

I read about submitting your site to search engine each month.  Whats the point?  Once your site has been indexed why do you need to keep resubmitting it or am I misunderstanding this.
Also for duz - what do you think about this product, just been playing with it and it seems pretty damn good. http://www.webceo.com/?source=WebProNews&kwd=04-top

None whatsoever and you are correct in your assumption. In fact submission to search engines in the first place is a complete waste of time they prefer to find you with a link.

>what do you think about this product

Sorry Gary I am not familiar with this product.  I cannot speak about this one but we do get a lot of clients who have screwed up their SEO with similar packages that claim to do it all for you.  What is the main feature of this one that you like?

Well I'm only looking through it now, its features are SE submission and help with manual submissions, page analysis, keyword analysis and so on,  I just did submissoins to about 30 search engines and got confirmation emails back from nearly all of them.  For a novice like me it seems pretty good.

IMHO, none of these are things that can be automated.  They are dynamic and ever-changing and require intuition as well as information.  Read & research, learn what you can, make your best effort, and monitor the results on an ongoing basis in order to make improvements.

Consider this as an alternative perhaps.  When you are ready for a site to be spidered simply create the first link from a frequently spidered, established site in Google, Yahoo and MSN. Thus the site is 'discovered' by the search engine and knows already that there is at least one quality backlink.  A better introduction in my view :)  

>got confirmation emails back from nearly all of them

They call themselves search engines, it is just an easy way for them to farm valid email addresses for spamming.  How many of the 30 search engines have you ever heard of before? How many people actually use them? Not many I bet :)

Hi duz,
Already did that with a link from another of my sites that ranks quite well on Google.
I've heard of several of the sites, theres a few I don't know of.
On a side note how long after dmoz visits your site does it take before they list you.  Someone has looked at the site but its not yet listed.

>....how long after dmoz visits your site does it take before they list you.

A visit from a dmoz editor does not mean a listing is round the corner :) They could have transferred it to a different category, deleted it or left in unreviewed. If it was approved it will show in the directory within seven days maximum. If you are one of those that has been waiting months you can find out what's happened to your submission in 'Site Submission Status' http://resource-zone.com/forum/  Make sure you read the guidelines for posting though.

It depends what category it's in, some sites get listed in days others have been waiting for more than two years.

ROFL
Other sites I've submitted I think got listed within a month of submission, so I'll wait a while.
