Interesting post, but not surprising.

Even AV is now taking several weeks to index submissions.

The others, Excite, Hotbot, etc, have often had periods of many months
when they have haven't taken new sites.

After your post, I submitted several of my sites to FAST which really
is fast, at least in terms of search speed. We'll see about listing time.

Isn't it funny that nowadays Yahoo is one of the easiest directories to
get listed in...if you pay up.
