sounds like your client gets the kind of spam that I do..."we'll submit you
to 350,000 search engines, detailed reports of rankings, etc etc"


any engine worth it's salt these days will find you if you have a link
somewhere poining at you.

directories are another matter. my advice to clients is that *they* should
do any submitting to directories, as they are most informed in their subject
area (hopefully), can select the best category to submit to, write the best
summary, etc.

then i usually sit with them and walk them through submitting to dmoz. once
they're in dmoz (if they get in), they *really* don't have to worry about
any of that submitting garbage, because all the worthwhile engines crawl
