submitting a web page address to a search engine in the hopes that it will index it. Submitting your pages using an automated tool (see “automated submitting”), submitting multiple pages of the same web site (see “deep submitting”), or submitting multiple times (see “resubmitting”), particularly if those pages are already indexed, are techniques typically frowned upon by search engines. It is suspected that some search engines apply a penalty factor to pages that were submitted versus those that the search engine spiders found on their own. Indeed, Inktomi was engaging in this practice before they discontinued accepting free submissions altogether.
