Use HotBot to submit, it uses the Inktomi engine.

The whole point of GoTo is that you pay to get a good listing on popular search terms. The only results on GoTo where your site will come up without paying will be behind all the pay results. Those listings on GoTo are practically useless, unless it's a term that doesn't get searched much and so there are no paid spots. If that's the case you out to join and pay $0.01 a click and then you will be the #1 spot with no contest and no search engine positioning problems.

Just my $0.02
(though I pay more than that for my GoTo listings)

"i saw in searchenginewatch.com that non-paid results come from Inktomi"

About one year ago this used to be true. Not so today. Listings without pay for click amounts are thus old ones when they used this procedure.

HTH

I don't think that's true Steve, I got a page into Goto's index.. not on purpose, but it's in there. I know 'cause one of my friends was asking about "the secret".. I guess just get links to ur site and hope that goto puts you in.. weird, huh? As for getting into Inktomi.. believe me, it will find you, no need to submit.
