Do We Need Web Directories?

Written by Stuart C. McHenry


Directories play an important role in aiding a site’s web visibility. Crawler-based search engines will, upon finding your site on a directory, or series of directories, consider these directories as one-way links. This will then add importance to your site’s relevance inrepparttar “eyes” of these search engines and will most likely increaserepparttar 143439 chances of your site being added to their listings.

Relevant reciprocal link exchanges are given some importance by search engines butrepparttar 143440 most valued links, those which are most likely to boost a sites rankings inrepparttar 143441 major SES are one-way links - sites that accept your link without requiring a reciprocal link from you. These links are highly regarded due torepparttar 143442 reasoning that other sites must hold your site in high enough esteem that having your link on their site is acceptable without an exchange requirement. Consequently,repparttar 143443 more one-way links,repparttar 143444 better!

Few, if any, sites today will agree to a one-way link favoring your site. The only way to achieve this is thru submitting to web directories.

Web directories and search engines have made a conscious effort to exclude bulk submitters. You’ve seenrepparttar 143445 ads - “We submit to 1,500 search engines and directories for $10.00, etc.” For this reason, many directories require your registration and possibly entering a security code. Practically all of these directories require you provide an email address. Although hot mail or gmail is usually accepted, some directories will require an email corresponding to your domain name and will allow you to submit your site only after verification so it is best to establish an email specifically for web submissions.
