Web Directory Submission Procedures By Inzza Web Directory

By Dhara Desai

Web directories are web sites that contain listings of other web sites on the Internet. These web directories are divided into various categories and subcategories that allow the user to go directly to the category of interest. In this way, the user can more specifically pinpoint the type of information he or she is interested in.

In order to get links to their websites listed in a web directory, web site owners must submit their links to the web directories. The web directory then reviews the site and determines whether or not it is appropriate to add to the web directory and which category is most appropriate for it to be listed.

There are several methods of listings that a web site owner can consider when looking for a web directory to place its site address. These include:

o Bid for position

o Featured homepage link

o Featured link

o Free submission

o No follow

o Paid submissions

o Reciprocal links

With the bid for position format, the sites listed on the web directory are listed in order according to how much the web site owner has bid to have the site listed. With the featured homepage link method, on the other hand, the link is listed on the homepage of the web directory. The featured link feature does not necessarily guarantee a placement on the homepage, but it does provide the web site with a high placement within the category where it is placed.

With the free submission option, the web site owner does not have to pay in any way to have the link listed on the web directory. With this type of web directory, the order of listing may be completely random or the web directory may place the items in the order that it deems to be most appropriate. Paid submissions, on the other hand, have been paid for review. Payment does not necessarily guarantee placement on the web directory. Rather, it only guarantees that the site will be reviewed for possible submission.

The no follow format, the link contains a rel=”no follow” attribute. As such, search engines will not follow link outside of the web directory. With reciprocal linking, on the other hand, the site that is listed on the web directory must also include a link back to the directory.

The overall quality of the web directory can be impacted dramatically according to the methods used for getting a link included in the directory. Some article directories are formed entirely for the purpose of trying to get web site owners to be for inclusion in the directory. Web site owners must be careful when selecting a web directory, however, as payment for review to an unpopular web directory may not be money well spent.

The same is true for users of web directories. While a high quality web directory can actually be more valuable than a search engine, a poorly constructed web directory can be a waste of money that leads to a great deal of unnecessary frustration.
