This is for the newbies, or those who learned SEO in the 90's...

Don't waste a second of your time doing manual search engine submission forms, or waste a dime of your money paying for a search engine submission program.

Why?

It's not necessary.

If you want to rank well you are going to need inbound links, maybe a lot, some quality content would help in that department too. ;) If you've got no links, your page is going to look like an orphan page to the engine, and they don't particularly like clogging their index up with pages that no one is going to find.

So, spend your efforts getting links in whatever way works for you, free directories, paid directories, link trades, paid link ads, writing articles for republishing, press releases, forum signatures, etc. If you've got exceptional content you may be able to get links without even trying, but that usually comes later for most sites.

Don't be fooled many types of linking are frowned upon by SE's.

Do's And Don'ts Of Site Linking

1. Don't do reciprocal linking with sites that sp@m. Your outgoing links to unethical sites could get you into trouble with search engines.

2. Don't link to FFA link farms. You might be penalized by the search engines.

3. Keep a close watch on your link partners always. Link to relevant and complementary sites. The higher the PR of the site, the better.

4. Obtain one-way incoming links when possible. It's the best. Use anchor text in links.

5. Most important of all, create good, original and unique content and one way incoming links will come naturally.

I disagree, search engine submitters are good for submitting the location of your reciprocal links. Makes sure links to your site are found by search engines.

It works just as well to link to the pages your links are on.

If those pages with your links aren't already in the index, submitting is still probably a waste of time for the same reasons mentioned before. Linking to those pages might "help", but if your link partners are that pitiful that you need to prop up their link pages, maybe you'd do better to get better link partners.

In order to get that backlinks, you should submit to as many directories as you can. But if you have in mind that there are thousands of directories out there, I think auto submiters is a good way to do the submitions.

Another great strategy is giving away free services. This way you will earn more back links. An example I have on one of my sites is http://pagerank.thetopsites.net

Yeah Thermit you are correct. It is actually better to save your money/time and manually find the right people to link to you. Creating quality inbound links from webmasters who apply smart SEO techniques is your best bet for receiving top spots in serps.
