I suggest submitting your site by hand to following directories. It does not take long, and if you are consistent and submit every month, you will increase traffic to your site.

I also recommend using goto.com which is a pay site. You can bid on keywords and pay for clicks to your site. I have used it and it works well. You can control your account online and change your bids, keywords, and linking any time. Full stats are available to help you easily track progress of your goto marketing. http://www.goto.com
In a hurry? I highly recommend you use great online system at SelfPromotion, it will save you a great deal of time and aggravation. http://www.selfpromotion.com/
If you still want to go gungho over search engine marketing, then visit, and take advantage of, information overload available at: http://searchenginewatch.com
Be sure to set up a schedule and keep submitting your site. Your listing will drop over time, and as more and more sites are submitted, your listing could be dropped all together. Once a month should be satisfactory for your search engine marketing.
One important tip to keep in mind when submitting your site - Do NOT submit your listing more than once a week! Some search engines will ban your domain all together for life for spamming their database.
