Of all the web promotion tools I've tried, SubmitWolf Pro is the most user-friendly I've found. The software has a database of over 2500 free-for-all links sites and 1500 international search engines and directories and can submit your URL to all of them within an hour (depending, of course, on your connection speed: I have a cable connection, and submitting my site took about 50 minutes).

It's easy to configure; you bring up the software, enter a few screens' worth of information, click a couple of "select all" boxes, and "submit". You can watch as the status screen shows you which address is being contacted and the results. Once the submissions are finished, the software will show you a report in your default browser.

SubmitWolf Pro also has a meta tag generator to make your website more search engine friendly. It's a fairly costly piece of software ($95 U.S.), but no more so than any of the other web promotion tools I've tried. Trellian has good customer support. The automated engine submissions are driven by scripts and the scripts are upgraded by Trellian every two weeks (approximately). The upgraded scripts are free to registered users. All program upgrades and maintenance releases within the same major version are also free. The unregistered version is fully functional, but limits the number of engines to which you can submit.

I'm impressed with the company and the software. If you're looking for a good web promotion tool, look no further: SubmitWolf Pro is it!
