Re: Indexing non-submitted pages

Because if I have got 30+ pages to submit, that's going to take up a great deal of time. I was just thinking laterally, and wanted to know if the idea of just submitting the home page which had links to my doorway pages was feasible. This way I would only have to submit one page and then wait for the search engine to eventaully spider the whole site and store the other pages in its index. Also with certain search engines namely WebCrawler and Excite (which both have the same search algorithms) they can easily detect submitted doorway pages because of the small amount of text on a page, and I know you will advise me to lenghthen the text, but at the end of the day I am looking of ways of reducing the amount of time I have to spend on promoting my site within the various search engines.
So is the idea possible Jim - will the search engine index those doorway pages even if I don't individually submit them and could they be found against a search phrase?
