Have spent many days/weeks submitting links to google, dmoz, altavista, and others - usually, the links I submit are ignored (e.g. dmoz has never indexed my sites, after more than a year - these people are useless).
Have used just about every automatic search engine submission site I can find, and they submit mostly to useless sites that have no impact. Have also submitted sites to MSN and Craig List.org, you name it, I think I have tried it. I have also tried the "rating engines" like Uptimebot.com, this doesnt help get listed either.
Am looking for sites to sumbit a website to that will actually produce results with google, etc., not just do nothing, like dmoz. Any ideas gratefully appreciated, remember, they must produce results in 2-3 weeks that are picked up by google and the other big ones as a relevant backlink. I can always up points for really good tips to good leads I dont know about.
