I don't remember seeing this in any of your information or in the monthly newsletters. I suspect it was and I missed it but here are some thoughts from Kansas. Regardless, I'm guessing you have done this yourself.
I find submitting to Google is useless. Best case you wait several weeks and they get you listed. Worst case, you never get listed.
So, I have learned another method and I think more emphasis should be put on this method...
I have a number of websites that are in very good standing with Google. http://www.shopping-headquarters.com is the best of the bunch. If somebody comes to me with a website that is not listed in Google, I simply put a link on my website for a few days and like magic, the unlisted website is listed. I cannot promise a position for specific keywords but can promise you will get listed.
Normally I put the link at the bottom of every page using an include file so I only have to add and delete it once. I find that most of the time it only takes a couple of days.
I just wish I could find a way to charge for this service. Anyway, that is my tip/trick for the year.
