    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

    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.

    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.

    You should choose the best category that suits to your website. And most Directory websites are for approval.

    Find a directory, navigate to the category that your site belongs to, type in your site title, enter your site description and click Submit.
