Default Importance of Directory Submissions?

It is true that traffic from directories is not much unless directories themselves have lot of traffic and in the process divert them your way. Some good directories dont' just give you a link, they also add writeup about your site or provide links at relevant places which helps end user to come to your site eg familyfirst.com doesn't appear to be a directory - and has good traffic so organic visitors to the site would eventually get directed to one of the listed / listings.
Directory submission will definitely increase your rank with search engines thus increasing your chances in landing at the top of search results. But this will not guarantee huge traffic to your website, it depends how many users are searching for your niche and taking into account the competition that exist.

To increase visibility online is the core of every online business marketing strategy. Driving traffic to your website and getting noticed by search engines takes a lot of time and effort.

‘Links’ play a major role in determining your ranking position on the various search engines. Obtaining inbound links or back links in quantity and quality can influence your search engine rank immensely. One simple way to obtain back links is to submit your link to directories. Online directories exist for the sole purpose of providing links to web users to various sites categorized under relevant topics. “Directory submission” is a website optimization strategy that no website owner should ignore.

Directories catalog links for easy access to users. Much earlier, directories were the primary source for web users to find websites on various topics. Today search engines have taken over but directories have not lost their importance yet. You cannot obviously expect too much traffic from a directory submission. But you can expect an improvement in your search engine placement.

Here is how it works. When submitting to a directory, the major hindrance as well as the major benefit lies in the human editor. Your submission will be viewed by an actual person who determines how relevant and unique your website is. After passing his scrutiny and editing, your website will be accepted in the directory. This automatically establishes the credibility of your website; hence search engines will consider links submitted to directories.

Some directories even feed their databases to other directories and search engines. Search engines base a certain factor on directories in judging a website’s popularity and relevance. Depending on the quality of the directory and the number of back links your website has, search engines will be able to determine your relevance and qualify your website accordingly.

Note how important listing in a directory is. If your website is low on content but rich in images, flash content, etc. search engines may not be able to categorize your website when the search spider visits your site. By submitting to a directory under a particular category, you allow the search engine to categorize your site under a relevant topic.

There are general and specific directories available online. Specific directories target only those websites based on a particular subject or field. No matter what your business is, odds are that directories will be available that cater specifically to it. There are also regional directories available which may be highly useful if your online business targets a local audience.

You can submit to some directories for free while others are charged. Look for directories relevant to your website and submit to them. There are even online directory submission services, like Directory Maximizer, available that work towards submitting your links to directories.

Directory submission is one of the best strategies to gain popularity to your site, you can only send a Web link for a list of service providers. List hyperlinks to flip Service Provider Web site to a specific category, depending on product type or types of sites.

Effectiveness of the directory is purely dependent on the quality of the directory means that the index of PR. Do not choose a high PR directory please send a link to the manual and do not go to an automatic transmission. Send a link to a category, and the corresponding part of the class. After the review period you direct to give your site a ll the quality and relevant links to your website. So you need to focus on quality and relevance of the directory to choose from.

It is true that traffic from the directories is not many directories, they have a lot of traffic and in the process deflecting them the way. Several good directory dont ' give you the link, also add a writeup about the site or provide links to relevant sites, which helps the user came to your web, it seems that the directory-and has a good traffic, so organic visitors to your site should eventually be directed to one of the listed/statements. Directory submissions certainly will increase your search engine rank increases your chances of landing at the top of search results. But it will not guarantee a huge operation of the site, how many users are looking for its niche and take account of competition which exist.
