Thanks for your reply. I have used the free version of "Register It" at
It only submits to about 11 engines. I have also submitted to other engines manually. Submitted to Yahoo's directory but nothing happened.
By "banner links" do you mean banner exchanges? My impression is that these programs just have a lot of people clicking on each other's links
so that others will do the same. But there is really little worthwhile traffic generated.
Do you have other suggestions for registering programs?
Have you ever used gateway pages and are they effective?
Thank you,
Gordon Lynch
