Each directory has its own rules and guide- lines for submitting. Read submission instructions carefully to avoid being rejected or banned.
Look at your submission from editor's point of view. Did you choose a category that is relevant to your site? Is your title and description relevant to your content? Is form filled out completely?
If there is a comments box on application, point out strengths of your site. Find something unique about your site that will add value to directory.
Recommendations for Better Placement
Most category search results are displayed in alphabetical order. So, you will get better placement if your company name begins with a letter close to beginning of alphabet.
Keyword search results are displayed in order of relevance to keyword. So, it's crucial to include your single most important keyword in title and description.
Most directories will give you an estimate of time it takes to get listed. If you don't get in by estimated time, submit again and follow up with email or a phone call.
Tell them that you appreciate their time and realze that things fall through cracks. Tell them why you think they will benefit by including your site in their index. Tell them that you have submitted a second time and look forward to their response.
Words of Caution
Only submit main page of your web site. Additional pages will be rejected.
Never submit your site over and over. That will only irritate editor and you may never get listed.
Don't submit to a regional directory that is not relevant to your site.
Don't submit your site until it's 100% ready for review.
All of above will easily take you hundreds and hundreds of hours of pure work.
