[thelist] seo software

SEO software is a waste of time.

For one, the search engines don't like automated submissions. These 
days there are probably only 3-4 engines worth the time submitting to 
(and some of these are paid for submission) so the bulk submit stuff is 
a waste of time. So it begs the question, what would you use it for? 
The reporting features are probably about the only thing of use, and 
you can get similar functionality via a number of websites.

So don't waste your money.
