(That advice ALONE is worth $199.00!)
There are two other human reviewed directories that you might consider submitting to as well.
One is Open Directory Project at http://www.dmoz.org where your proper category is:
and a second category you would submit to is
(That advice is worth $135.00!)
Submitting in proper category is essential to getting listed at Open Directory Project as it is staffed by volunteers and they will ignore your submission if you choose inappropriate category. Submission is free and this directory is critical because literally thousands of additional directories in specialized areas (including yours) rely on ODP database to populate their own topical and theme-based directories.
(That advice is worth $250.00!)
The second additional directory you might consider costs as much as Yahoo does ($399) and is called LookSmart and they will have a human review your site and place it properly in their directory. They supply search results to thousands of sites, including several VERY big ones that you won't get listed in otherwise, simply because of their partnership arrangements with large portals.
(That advice is worth $150.00!)
"Crawler based search engines send software-based "robots" or "spiders" to analyze your site content, keyword density, metatags, page structure, link structure, link popularity and site theme - based on all publicly accessible pages. You might consider increasing your number of free pages by writing articles about specific projects, referring to additional resources available online and adding content to your site overall with information that you would not be able to sell otherwise. Increased CONTENT ALWAYS HELPS YOUR SITE TO RANK BETTER.
(That advice is worth $650.00!)
The key to ranking well with crawler based search engines is combining all of those ingredients in appropriate measure and with good page structure, which is what I do for you.
I use techniques that are search engine friendly and gain top positions in "crawler-based" search engines, then submit your site to those that accept free submissions within top eight engines. Contrary to what many scamsters claim, it is entirely irrelevant to be listed in hundreds of search engines when only 4 or 5 are used by vast majority of people on web. The top 8 U.S. based (English) engines are:
Google Fast / All The Web Alta Vista Netscape Search HotBot Lycos AOL Search MSN Search
The other important web resources rely on Open Directory Project index, LookSmart and Yahoo to populate their own directories, which then increase your link relevance, which then help to improve your crawler-based engine rankings. It is all very neatly tied together if you understand it thoroughly.
(That advice is worth $1500.00 all by itself!)
