One submit is enough - Google will spider the rest, if it can.  An incoming
link to any page will also allow Google to find the site and once there, its
spider will search around for your pages.  It does not make any difference
if your pages are about similar or different topics.

Do you want visitors to come direct to your deep pages? If so, it is a good
idea to encourage Google to index all your pages.  If you have lots of
different topics make sure that each individual page is a static html page,
well set up in its own right for search engine indexing.  Never delete or
change page file or directory names.

If your homepage is a like a Yahoo, I would have thought that you might want
to discourage Google from indexing your content by using a robots.txt file
or making all your content dynamic.  Otherwise your competitor, Google, will
do your home page job for you and possibly much better!.
