 SubmitDummy! Pro is a set of tools to help you prepare and submit your website to a number of search engines (10). The program is small, installs easily and works flawlessly. The trial version gives you 12 days before it expires and limits to three the number of search engines you can submit to.

Registering unlocks additional search engines (21 total), allows unlimited sites to be submitted and you receive free upgrades

The interface consists of a row of buttons on the right for the various functions, a URL field to enter your site addresses and the main work area where you choose which URLs you want to work with. You can submit one or more sites that you have added or you can submit the whole list at once.

There are a number of tools to help you do a thorough submission. There's a ping tool to check that your site is up before submitting, an analysis tool that checks your site's description and keywords, popularity tool that check for links to your site from Alltheweb, a ranking tool that returns results from fourteen search engines based on keyword search, Keyword suggestion tool that queries five engines for related keywords, Advertise tool that gives you the option to submit to several paid indexing services including Inktome, Yahoo, Google, and Looksmart, and an Import function to add URLs from per line or comma delimited list.

The program is easy to use and gives you everything you need to prepare your site and submit it. It helps you avoid many of the common pitfalls of site submission, ensuring that your site will be accepted and ranked properly. The only thing I didn't like is that there are no included help files. Not that you will need much help but I would have liked to see it included rather than online help only. Otherwise this program is a real gem. The online help has a lot of great information about the ins and outs of site submission and ranking and is a must read.

If you have a website(s), SubmitDummy! Pro will save you a lot of time and ensure your site is submitted in a way that will optimize your rankings. Try it today!
