Directly from the letter:
WEBSITE ADDRESS LISTING INCLUDES:
Domain name submission with 8 key words/ phrases to 25 MAJOR search engines, quarterly search engine submissions
Directly from their website:
We submit your website 4 times a year to over 25 search engines and business directories like these below...
|Quickseek||Scrub The Web||Search Hippo||Alexa Web Search||Metadata Search Spider|
|Search It||Super Snooper||Ultraseek||Info Probe||whatUseek Network|
Before we go any further....THIS IS NOT A GOOD DEAL! NOT FOR $75!! NOT EVER!!
What are the issues with this? First off, when you submit your website to a search engine you don't get to pick 'key words / phrases'. You simply submit your URL (www.example.com).
Second, search engines have evolved tremendously since the 'early days' and the need to submit your website to search engines is no longer needed. Rather, gather a few links from some authority websites soon after you launch your new website and allow Google and Yahoo to find your website naturally by doing what they do best - following links to find new content.
Thirdly, and based on my second point, continually submitting your website to search engines (for instance the 'quarterly submissions' advertised above) IS SPAM and will only result in getting your website banned completely from the major search engines.
I was so bothered by the fact that this company, Domain Listing Services Corp, is making God knows how much money off of uneducated people I decided to do some digging.
