Again, search engine robots seem to "ignore" this abused "strategy". Don't worry, you won't get your site banned, but also don't anticipate measurable results.
~~ Myth #5 ~~
Using Search Engine Submission Services and Software will Skyrocket your Search Engine Rankings
If most search engines offer a "free submission" option, what would be benefit of paying for a submission service to promote your site? Obviously no benefit.

~~ Myth #6 ~~
Search Engines don't Index Dynamically Generated Pages...
Top search engines like Google and Altavista (and not only) do index dynamically generated pages / links, but don't necessarily count them as a "good hub" towards optimum link popularity. Dynamically generated hyperlinks / web-pages like affiliate links and certain database-driven webs, can be "spidered" and actually appear in search engine indexes. It's up to a search engine's algorithm to "decide" how high will a web page appear in its' results.

Many webmasters have resorted to submission software to boost rankings and automate indexing procedure. These tools are promoted aggressively by marketers who promise to produce superlative results. Yes, these "tools" were good but... once upon a time. The main purpose of using such tools is to automate your search engine submission, but you'd better resort to other, self-promotional avenues by... enriching your knowledge.
Since we "debugged" 6 of most shattering search engine marketing myths based on top ranks and optimum link popularity, "comeback" is almost obvious...
The postmortem of whole chronicle, is that search engine marketing savvy is a priceless "virtual" asset. No matter how classy a website is, if it isn't search engine optimized, only a strong budget can bring-in visitors (add "prospective" before visitors) -- an everlasting "marriage" with advertising companies.
