Improve search engine placement
by utilizing online web directories!
One of the simplest ways to improve
your sites search engine placement, is by submitting your
domain to web directories. There are thousands of directories
available all over the Internet. Remember, not all directories
are created equal. Our goal is to guide you to a greater understanding
of their many differences.
The majority of web directories are designed as either a general
or niche directory. They are the main types available, and
a great place to start!
The majority of directories are basic / general. These types
offer a broad range of topics, and are not specific to any
one field. Most free site submissions are provided by the
webmasters of general directories. Not the strongest choice,
but worth spending time on.
Directories that are designed around a specific field or
subject. They will only take web sites that are related
to the topic at hand. Some may be geared towards finance,
Internet, or any category that the owner chooses. Rated
higher than most basic directories.
Both niche and general web directories can be found offering
non-reciprocal and/or reciprocal submissions. Understanding
the differences is very important.
Directories that allow you to place your link details
on their site without having to add a return (reciprocal)
link to them. These are considered one-way links, and are
among the best types of links for improving your search
These require you to add a link onto one of your web pages
that brings you directly to that specific web directory.
Many successful web sites create a links/ resources section
on their site, designed specifically for placing reciprocal
links to other web domains.
Submission Fee :
The cost of directory submissions will depend squarely on
the specific web site in question. Not all site submissions
require a fee. Many are offered at no cost.
Looking for a cost efficient way of getting your web
site noticed. Free web directory submissions offer a great
way to grow your domain without spending a single dime...the
only cost is your time.
Paying for site submission on web directories is something
that will require more research on your part. Look for directories
that have high PR and detailed categories as a general rule
to follow. The fee for paid web directory submission is
usually a one time charge. Many web directories offer you
the option for paid and free listing to choose from. Choosing
paid submission gives your site priority over the free site
submissions. Like free submission, you can find both non-reciprocal
and reciprocal choices for your web site.
