Since Feb. when AV acquired it's new spam detection system, things changed drastically in both, their indexing and indexing times.
To be safe, you can only submit 1 ot 2 URLs from the same directory during a given 24 hr. period. Also, several free ISP domains are being blocked by AV as well. Over the past 2 months, I've noticed an avarage of 9 to 13 days for my submitted pages web design & prmotion service pages to appear in their index.

Hope this helps,
