Here is what I was told by a friend who runs a very successful SEO company. Don't use WebCEO, WebPosition or any of those software packages, they used to work fine, but they are seeing that not only is Google baning domains using this software, but other search engines are doing the same. What they do suggest is rather then submitting to everyone out there, that you submit to the big four as they are the only ones "that are driving qualified traffic" and most of the rest are pulling results from these 4. The four are: 1. Google 2. Yahoo (directory and organic) http://www.content.overture.com/d/USm/ays/sm.jhtml 3. MSN (Yahoo and Overture for now but launching new 2005) 4.

Google does not recommend the use of products such as WebPosition Gold that send automatic or programmatic queries to Google."
