You can add your link to a FFA page, and it'll appear at the top of the list of links. As other people add their link, yours moves down the page, until finally it disappears.

The problem is, you have to give an email address when you submit, and guess what? Many FFA pages exist only to gather email addresses of suckers. Your reward is lots of juicy spam!

Some people mistakenly think that having a link on a lot of FFA pages will increase your link popularity and thus your rankings on search engines like Google. Guess what? Google is smart enough to ignore, or even penalize, urls that appear on such pages. The same goes for dumb attempts to fool Google, often called link farms.

Finally, even if you do get some clicks from a FFA listing, the quality of the visitors will be low. After all, you've got to be seriously bored to bother looking on an FFA page.

Now you know why I don't submit urls to FFA pages. Total waste of time.
