"Tooter," the most sophisticated submission robot on the net, stands ready to assist you in promoting your website! It does all the hard work for you -- for free!
SelfPromotion.com has been providing the basic facts about website promotion in two centuries (barely!). Here you will find all the information you need, plus some nifty automatic submission tools that will help you get the job done quickly. efficiently. and most of all, properly. If you invest a little time into reading and using this resource, you'll not only do a much better job of promoting your site, but save yourself a lot of time and effort in the process -- not to mention, you'll avoid the costly traps that most newbie webmasters fall into.
Important note: the search engine landscape has changed radically in the many years since I first created this site. In particular, the number of sites worth submitting to has shrunk tremendously, and automatic submission is pretty much obsolete.
I am maintaining the site for historical reasons, and because the tutorials and articles (links lower on the page) are "evergreen"; the basic advice they provide is still useful and relevant. All accounts will now expire 1 year after the last time they are acessed, and there is no need to pay me unless you really want to! Enjoy!
99% of Webmasters don't need costly website optimization and submission services. Interestingly, 99% of “Search Engine Professionals” don't mention this -- they're too interested in charging you for their services.
I run this site in a totally different way. You can use almost everything on the site for FREE. If you feel the site is useful, then you can pay me what YOU think the advice and service is worth! And if you ever change your mind for any reason, you get your money back -- no questions asked.
