You are much more likely to get listed if you join Google's Webmaster Tools SiteMap program.  You create a proper site map and upload it and then they will know about all of your pages.  It carries a lot more weight than a simple site submission.

Google's advice on SEO includes links to a number of their other services including Webmaster Tools.

There are sites like
No one site is likely to submit to all indexes and most of them only take a few minutes to do in the first place.

I agree with @DaveBaldwin, the single best thing you can do is use a site map on your google webmaster tools.  Next, have great content that you did not copy and paste from some place else.  The next is to have your local business license which typically includes your assumed name or corporation with your secretary of state office.  

I would also do the similar with Bing.

The first directory I would submit to on your own would be the dmoz 

To answer your question, I like this site that helps show me what sites I am missing and what sites may have bad info.  I can then easily edit/add each site.  

Most the directory sites feed of each other, and you just need to make sure you are listed with the major data providers. Most of my clients that have been in business for a few years and have a business license and business phone number already are listed in these sites and never submitted anything.
