If you're wondering whether or not you've been submitted and accepted into the popular search engines, you can check for free at Did-It Detective. Enter the URL to your site as well as some keyword phrases pertaining to your site and you'll receive an e-mail report analyzing how your Web site is listed in top search engines.

The search engines analyzed include AOL, HotBot, Yahoo, Excite, MSN, Lycos, Direct Hit, AltaVista, AllTheWeb and Google. In the report, you can view a table that tells you which search engines list you and how they rate your listing. (Position 1 is the best, Position 2 is a step down, and so on). Also, the Detective lists all the relevant URLs indexed by the search engines along with the descriptions for each page.

For a hefty fee ($995), Did-it.com will also submit your site. The fee also includes search engines monitoring for a year.
