:) If I was still willing to do SEO for clients, and I had the
usual type who are so clueless that they leave SE listing for
last, I'd doubtless advocate paying for inclusion; would make the
CEO happy, anyway. However an inbound link is not really
necessary if you have tons of solid content. Once it's in Google,
you get lots of traffic, and the URL ends up in tons of
unprotected log files, so sooner or later even Inktomi will find
it. Of course once you list with ODP there are lots of solid
links from static pages anyway, what with all the ODP mirrors.
