First of all about the installation. During the installation you
are given the opportunity to pick which language you want the program in. They
are English, Spanish, German, French, Italian and Swedish. Then you can do your
proxy server settings (pick auto detect) and you are given the chance to pick
where you want the program installed. You should be on the Internet while doing
the setup as the program automatically checks for updates.
Okay lets get one thing straight they are not about to let you have the complete
program so that you do your search engine submissions and then decide not to pay
for the program. What you get is a demo. The demo will operate with 5 of the 364
search engines, but is otherwise fully functional.
All programs have a learning curve. What you do with this one to get started is
the obvious. Do the Tutorial in the "Help" file. It is easy to understand and
along the way you are going to learn search engine tactics.
Each website submission is called a project. You fill out the information in
each of the dialog areas for each domain. That way you can have the program
setup for doing submissions and reporting for different domains without
The first entry is the url for the domain that you want to do your submission
for, then email info for that submission if you want a report emailed to you or
someone else. (There are other custom fields that can be used also, like making
custom reports and optional working directories.)
Then you enter the search phrase that you want ranking on. (the program walks
you through this nicely giving you good examples). After that you pick the
search engines that you want to include.
After that you "Run" the program. Note: There are basically two parts of the
search engine portion of the program. The Ranking and Submission portions. The
way you enter the information for each section and "Run" them are similar and
the Help file walks you through them.
There is another part of this program that is unique for this type of software
as far as I know. There is a domain monitor that will keep track of all of your
Search Engine Commando can send you email messages for the following events:
· Something in the domain name registration changed.
· A domain name is about to expire (Search Engine Commando will send weekly
notices within 30 days of expiration).
· A domain name has expired.
· A domain name has transitioned from registered to unregistered status.
Now lets get down to the nits and gritties..
Is this program worth the big bucks? The answer is an emphatic Yes! If you want
to do search engine submissions and rankings with efficiency then this program
is just the ticket.
