I think i read this somewhere in a newsgroup

"I read the article too. The $199 is only to get priority in being seen/reviewed by their staff. $199 seems way out of line considering that it does NOT guarantee placement at all! They started this it seems out of consistent complaints that it takes so long to get listed with them. Some even have been trying for years! Got me on that length of time to wait! I personally thing is slightly overated. They ARE the most visited search engine...but they don't list as many sites as the other search that a plus from a consumer's viewpoint? To some it might be, cause it cuts down on their need to surf, whereas, they at the same time may not be getting the best of the categories (the best may not even be listed yet!). This is just MY opinion. I'm not saying I wouldn't WANT to be listed with them....oh, by no means is that a correct assumption."

This isnt my opinion just thought it may help
