The Open Directory - An absolute MUST, the Open Directory supplies results for numerous major search engines and is the largest human-edited search engine in the world. It can take weeks or months for your submission to be reviewed and appear in the directory, so the sooner you submit, the better. To find the "Suggest a Site" link, simply start at the home page and click on categories until you arrive at the one where you feel your site would best be located. The "Suggest" link will be in the top right navigation area. The Open Directory listings are also available to AOL Search, Netscape Search, Hotbot, AltaVista, and other search engines.  http://www.dmoz.org
Bing - A top search engine by Microsoft. Bing's spiders will find most sites, but you can manually submit as well. Bing is now associated with Yahoo, so submit to Bing for inclusion in Yahoo. http://www.bing.com/webmaster/submitsitepage.aspx
Google - Use your Google login (free) to submit your site to Google here: http://www.google.com/addurl/ . (PS - If you're interested in buying Google Adwords pay - per - click program, let us know; we can help.)
