This software assists webmasters in submitting their homepage URLs to free-for-all links sites and major search engines. All the webmaster has to do is enter some basic information about themselves and their website (their name, e-mail address, site URL, a short description of their site, and keywords, etc.), choose from a list of 971 sites to submit, (the trial version is limited to 30 sites at one time), and click on the "go" button. A screen pops up which shows the status of submissions as they are processed, i.e. how many submissions have been successful, how many failures, and a successful submission rate, expressed as a percentage. At the end of a batch, the program will offer a chance to view the submission log in your browser.

Although easy enough to install, use, and uninstall, I believe the price is pretty hefty. You can submit your site on line to search engines and free-for-all links pages without this software yourself at no cost; the software makes it faster and easier, but much more pricey. The product support doesn't seem inordinately helpful either; I e-mailed them on a Monday, and by Wednesday hadn't heard from anyone.

All in all, I wouldn't recommend an individual purchase this software to promote a personal homepage (unless you have a lot of money floating around that you don't know what to do with); it might be better suited and economically feasible for an e-commerce site.
