That  depends  if  you consider your time to be valuable. I  have  already
spent  some  time  trying to submit very relevant sites to  DMOZ.  Even  a
Florida  architect  is apparently not worthy of having his dot com  regis-
tered under the Florida architects category. It's often pointless.

Submittal  to search engines is /definitely/ pointless because, much  like
pinging service, the forms (even with CAPTCHA) are open to misuse by spam-
mers  and greedy Webmasters. Even with filters on pinging services, I  be-
lieve  80% of the traffic is pure spam. That's what I've been told.  Think
of  the  existence of such submittal tools as legacy (like meta  data)  or
something to get the hopes of Webmasters up, often in vain.
