(3) Telephone Number in Shopping Sites: Most directories rate shopping sites without a phone contact as an affiliate sites. Telephone also plays a very important role in selling products to Internet shoppers. Most 85% of Internet shoppers may not buy from shopping sites that do not include a contact address or telephone number or both. One question that goes in shoppers mind is – what will happen if I need to call for help? For technical support, returns etc. The same emphases are placed by editors of most directories like Yahoo, Dmoz and other new directories.
Although this rule may not apply to some paid directories, but there are some paid directories that still adhere to above principle. Most paid directories may not refund your payment when they fail to include your listing in their directory.
(4) Listing with Right Title, Description and Keywords To Appropriate Category: Lay emphasis in Title, Description and Keywords you are using when submitting to directories. Make it a point of duty to study directory you are submitting to, prior to submission and find out how majority of their listings are placed. Use simple keywords or phrases that relates to your site content. Do not include keywords that do not relate to your site content, since most directories rely on keywords to structure results, placing wrong keywords may inflame some editors.
Since most major search engines these days lay emphasis on quality links from human edited websites like directories, make it a point of duty to do your homework and save time doing it.
