Funnily enough, I was entering some URLs for a site I've designed in some
of the major search engines (lycos, yahoo, webcrawler) when I came across
a service called Submit-It!, a web-based service which takes your input
and submits the details to fifteen different search engines, allowing
them to come and index your site and more importantly publicise it to the
rest of the search-engine-using internet public.

In addition to this, you might also consider posting details to a usenet
newsgraoup called comp.infosystems.www.announce, which exists solely for
the purpose of distributing the details of new sites. A comprehensive FAQ
is often posted there, if you have questions about using the service.

The url for Submit-It! is http://www.submit-it.com, by the way.

Hope this helps!
