Directory submission tips
« on: 09-10-2011, 10:34:12 »
There are some tips while submitting directory submitting:

1. Confirmation Mails :: First and foremost, the buyers think that more the confirmation mails, the better is the submission.

2. Page Rank :: Well directories have Grey bar or PR 0 or PR 1+ and this is very very important. Getting 100 High PR submissions is far better than getting 1000 PR Grey Bar/PR 0 but dont underestimate low PR directories too.

3. Types of Directories submission procedure:: Many popular directories have "submission by category", its where you tunnel down to the deepest relevant directory before you could access the submission form. Thats a tough task and most of the people would avoid it since its time consuming, though it may be an important directory.

4. Errors in Submission:: There are lots of errors that could occur during submission
Guidelines violation
Not adhering with the character limits
"Title is not unique in the parent category"
"Category full, use sub-category"
"No-Follow attribute" submission options
URL already exists. It might have been submitted in wrong category.

5. Niche Specific/Regional submission/Deeplink Submissions:: Dont under-estimate the importance of these two. If you dont have time to submit all, atleast take your own time to do niche specific submissions.

6. Bannable words:: There are some predefined words that should be avoided like replica, duplicate, illegal etc.

7. Mail Activation:: Many directories require you to click on activation links in Mail

8. Directories that is sure to approve:: How to find out? Thats difficult. But one thins can be done which I have been doing. Always search for "approved" mails and do some parsing and other techniques and find out via Mr G that which are the directories that have approved the links that submitted. So collect them and give them more importance next time.

Hello Friends,

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

Thanks and Regards
