Sure, if you believe what they say, the whole
site would get indexed... eventually... maybe...

Most people wouldn't leave it to chance, it's
normal practice to submit all your pages, that

You quite obviously need Promotion Artist and
Webposition, which will save you countless hours
of time. Why don't you try them, they both have
unlimited trial periods.
