For Google it used to be called Google Local now its part of Google Maps.  The URL is the same to add your business
www.google.com/local/add
For Yahoo the url is http://listings.local.yahoo.com/csubmit/index.php
For MSN/Live (http://maps.live.com ) the url is https://ssl.search.live.com/listings/ListingCenter.aspx
Its free so you won't find any "bulk" deals, but I'm sure you could find someone cheap on forums.digitalpoint.com or getafreelancer.com to add bulk submissions for you.

I had accidentally pasted the entire URL, including session specific data, therefore I provided the regular URL (link) without the session data which would not be valid for you or anyone else.
