Search Engine and Directory submission:

Submission to search engines is now basically a waste of time and effort. The way to get listed is to get links to your site, from other sites. This includes directories. Search engine spiders will follow those links, crawl your site and eventually, your site will appear in the results. This maybe a very long time. Use PPC advertising campaigns to drive targeted traffic to your site quickly.
