    Here's Sultan_Emerrs Links to getting your site Registered with the Search Engines...

    If you hope to get a load of returning visitors, you have to keep updating it with new things that make people want to keep going, and it's gotta look good. The better looking, the more people want to be affiliated with it. Also, make friends, and share links. Join web rings, give the links to your friends who are interested, and an interactive element like a message board, or such, will (if handled correctly) keep people coming back.

    I don't know, but I have listed my blog in as many directories as I can find, and I'm not getting any traffic from them at all. But I guess I don't know much about the backlinks and what advantage that gives you.
