If like me you are keen on web design you'll know that the most tedious part is search engine submission. There are freebies out there, which are, let's say adequate but limited. What you really want is to do as little as possible to submit your masterpiece to as many as possible.
Dynamic 2000 blows your socks off !! I read the promotion literature on their site which proclaimed "Submit your site to 915 engines in minutes !!". Oh yeah (yawn) heard it all before. Well let me tell you I tried that, all 915 submissions, and it took just 14 mins 40 secs. Incredibly fast !! Read on to find out how simple it is.
Installation is straight forward the only thing you have to do is update the engine data with a click of a button. The process is simplicity itself. First use the "Optimiser" if you want. This looks at your meta tags and reports as to whether and how you should make improvements or corrections, essential for getting your site searchable. Once you've done that simply fill out the details asked for and here's a nice touch, hit the "Get Meta-tag" button and it auto-fills that part for you, saves an awful lot of typing. Next save the details. All you have to do now is select the search engines, directories, free for all links, Hot sites, New, News/Classified or just the Major engines that you want. There is a filter option which allows you to select by country or by type of engine so you can say choose America only - general category and you can save that configuration for use at a later date. Now all you have to do is click on submit and off it goes submitting to up to 10 engines at a time.
Just sit and wait or do some surfing while you wait (you won't have long) and on completion a very clear and comprehensive report is produced. Out of 915 engines I submitted to I had 81 failures but that's to be expected with time outs and server errors, you get that doing manual submissions. The reports are available any time. You can also do multiple URL submissions, once you have filled in a saved your details you can recall them so you could for instance submit 8 URLs at a time.
If you've got a site you want to submit and you want results this is the tool for the job. Very fast, very easy to use and very comprehensive.
