Day 1 manual submission : I submit my website to a search engine
Day 2 manual submission: Search engine tries to identify how to classify my website
Day 1 automatic submission : You find a niche website close to your website’s target audience and get it to link back to your website.
Day 2 automatic submission: Search engine sees your new website and automatically adds your website to its search engine index.
With automatic submission search engine has already made an impression based on the website that introduced your website to the search engine. Say the niche website that introduced your website to the search engine is based on toys then the search engine has already optimised to classify your website in relative to toys, kids, parents, child care, etc. This is better than manual search engine submission.
