You do not need to register your site with search engines because they will find it when they follow a link to one of the pages on your site. You will however need to optimize each page on your site for the keyword(s) that you would like that page to appear for and reading this tutorial will get you on track http://www.seo-guy.com/tutorial.html

Hi duz,

What does "scrapped from here" mean? then followed by "It's a crap list btw"?

I forgot how I came across this list, but I have been using it for a little more than 2 years.

It means the list you pasted is the same as the list in the url and it is rubbish.

If you want a good list of directories then use this one http://www.best-web-directories.com/free-directories.htm which is one of the better lists at the moment.

Thanks for the link duz,

  I think that we should mention that submitting a page to any list of search engines, crappy or constipated, is a complete waste of time unless the page has been optimized.
 
  What do we do next? Step 1 Optimize, Step 2 Submit ..... What is the best way to track our position as we move up the list?

 Thanks in advance, and by the way what episode was it, when Wilson reached over the fence and smacked Tim?

  I apologize for the hokie pokie comment. : )
