How does a Directory Submission work?
Find a directory and submit your site URL
Ah, so I imagine I need to find one that is targeted toward the right market? right?
Targeted directories would be preferable, but you can also submit your site to general web directories. You can find lots of directories in our Web Directory List - Get More Traffic from Hundreds of Web Directories thread. Lots of the directories there are free, i.e. you don't have to pay anything to submit your site.
You can search for general web directories then submit your URL in the appropriate category to cater to your target market.
Most have the directory do have category, you just need to submit under the correct category. By the way, if you are aiming for sales, craigslist work better than directory
The benefits of direcotry submission:
To get your website indexed;
Lead the more times spiders index you site;
Targeting specific keyword using directory submission;
To get more traffic
Thanks Fergal, Rocky, and sigma! I'll take a list at those websites and craigslist.
Shake your mind find a niche related directory then submit your URL with proper title and description.
After submission your link will be checked by the moderator and it would be approved. You will get a link back to your website which is called on way linking.
As per my experience i found that Directory submission is famous Off page SEO techniques which brings quality backlinks. You have to submit your site in them and the moderators approves it and give you Backlinks. But After Google update Directory submission lost its importance. You have to submit your site in High PR Do Follow sites.
Find directory submission sites and submit URL, Title and Description.
Keep in mind to not submit to too many directories and obtain other links as well to benefit your site from an SEO standpoint. Google can tell if all you are going is submitting to directories and I have personally seen sites lose ranking by abusing this technique.
