This software assists webmasters in submitting their website URLs to free-for-all links sites and search engines. All the webmaster has to do is enter some basic information about themselves and their website (URL, site title, e-mail and category for their website), select from the database a number of links to submit their site to (the unregistered version is limited to 30 submissions at a time), and click on "GO!" Like "Free Link Finder", the product I reviewed about a week ago, in the registered version you can set the software to submit for days on end, because it supposedly spiders off the original link sites and submits your link to those sites, also. (In "Free Link Finder", the spidering is available in the trial version). Since I only downloaded and installed the trial software, I don't know whether that spidering works. It does keep track of the number of links it has completed and will show you a log of those links, both completed and failed, in your browser.

The software is easy to install and user-friendly. However, there appear to be quirks in the operation of the trial version; some of the screens distort while the program is in use, and once it even crashed my desktop, requiring a re-boot.

If you're that "into" web promotion, spend the extra cash and purchase "Free Link Finder". Even though this software is half the price, in my opinion, the functionality and dependability isn't there.
