Directory Submission Tips
1. Write your title & link text: Many directories require that you use your site’s name, or your actual business name as the title.
2. Write a brief description of your website: Most directories require a description from 150-255 characters – that’s about 15-25 words or so, probably 2-3 sentences. This is the description that will be displayed below the link to your website in the directory.
3. List your keywords, in order of importance: Some directories want you to submit keywords in addition to your description. Also, some directories want the keywords/keyphrases separated by commas, others just want them separated by spaces. So it’s worth writing 2 lists, formatted in the 2 different ways.
4. Don’t make it sound spammy: That goes for titles, descriptions, and keywords. Avoid promotional language & repetition. Just be honest & objective, write your text carefully with your visitors
5. Double-check everything: After you’ve written your titles, descriptions, and keywords lists, check for spelling, grammar, capitalization and punctuation errors.
6. Choose the right category: Take a little time to browse through the directory to find the category that most closely fits your website. This is important, as many directories will reject your site if it’s submitted to an inappropriate category.
7. A note on URLs (web addresses): Most web directories won’t accept an URL that redirects to another. Use only your primary web address.
8. Submit to quality websites & don’t use automated submissions: There are a lot of directories out there that aren’t worth your time. Submit only to quality sites
