Time To Say Goodbye To Submission Software? - Thousands of email...
(Page 2 of 3 )
Thousands of email complaints and plummeting sales prompted them to restore the submission feature with haste. Since then they have continued to modify the submission module of Addweb, but with much more care than before.
Most of the submission software titles currently available have diversified from simple submission programs. Addweb now boasts of a suite of 19 software modules from link trader to domain manager. They have also bulked out their submission modules by including paid link submission, and enable engine selection to try and avoid being labeled as a spam promoter. Other titles have taken similar action. Dynamic Submission, for instance, has beefed up its paid submission and is now really just part of the Dynamic Promotion Suite.
So what is the future for submission software? I would wager that the submission components of the major products will gradually disappear - at least for search engines submission. Despite customer resistance, eventually the message will get through that submission is not necessary. Directory submission will prove more durable, although the modules will be much simpler because of the one-time name of directory submission.
