The process for getting the base URL submitted to search engines varies
pretty wildly. As far as Google's concerned, you need only have somebody
else with an indexed site link to it.

Be warned, though: some search engines don't take kindly to sites they
can't index (like yours, since it's built entirely in flash).

What's that saying, "every *sshole has an opinion"? ;)
