Listing Tied To Submitting
With some search engines, directly submitting a page greatly increases the odds that the page will be listed. This shows which search engines operate in this matter. With the others, there is no great advantage in submitting multiple pages from your web site. Instead, they will simply crawl your site and gather what they find of interest independently of your submission attempt. There is one big exception: if you use doorways pages, you will need to submit these individually. Otherwise, the search engine won't know how to find them. But remember, just because you submit these pages is no guarantee search engines will list them where listing is not tied to submitting.

Submission Limit
This shows the maximum number of submission each search engine will either allow or keep track up for a particular period of time. Keep in mind that the closer you approach the limits, the more likely you may attract a review of your site. For instance, although you can submit up to 50 pages per day to HotBot via its online form, a more conservative approach would be to submit only 25 pages per day. Also remember that there is usually no reason to submit each page from your web site to search engines where listing is not tied to submitting.

Submitted Pages Appear In
This shows how soon to expect a page that you submitted to appear in the listings of each search engine. In particular, AltaVista is (normally) particularly fast in listing any page submitted to them. Be sure to also read the Notes column for any particular details relating to listing delays.

Non-Submitted Pages Appear In
Most search engines will gather other pages from your web site, even if you never submit these pages to them. How many will depend on the size of the search engine. Those that do "deep crawls" will gather more. For sites that are already listed, this is how long it will take for new pages you add to the site to appear, if you don't submit these directly to the search engines.
Remember, there are no guarantees that all non-submitted pages from your site will appear. In fact, as described above, there are even no guarantees that submitted pages will appear at all search engines. Also remember that it's essential there are links to any pages you expect to be added without having them directly submitted. For instance, if you have no links to doorway pages, then search engine will not find them unless you directly submit them.

Overall Freshness
This column reflects how out-of-date a search engine may be for pages that are already listed in the index. For instance, AltaVista may revisit some pages on a daily basis while others may be visited once per month. But in no case should any page be more than a month out of date -- at least according to what AltaVista says publicly.

Please Note that:--
This column simply provides more details about submitting to a particular search engine. It can change from time to time.
