Submitting your site to the Open Web Directory: some dos and don'ts

Written by Donald Nelson

One ofrepparttar most important steps in any site's publicity campaign isrepparttar 131810 submission torepparttar 131811 Open Web Directory (http://www.dmoz.org) as this directory provides search results for many ofrepparttar 131812 most important search engines and online portals. This directory is not a robot driven spider, but a human edited directory and you must observe a few important points if your submission is to be successful.

1.Make sure that your site has original content. If you are only publishing a collection of affiliate links or if your site is a clone of other sites that are plentiful onrepparttar 131813 web, then your submission is likely to be rejected. If you are dealing with affiliate products you can of course add content, such as product reviews or additional information and thus showrepparttar 131814 editors that your site has something original to offer.

2. Check your site for spelling errors and in general, make sure that your site looks good. Thoughrepparttar 131815 editors are looking for original content, they are only human and will be annoyed by errors and by a clumsily built site. It is my experience that professionally designed sites, with good content, always make it intorepparttar 131816 directory eventually (more onrepparttar 131817 time factor later).

3. Be sure to put your contact information onrepparttar 131818 web site. An e-mail address is not enough. I spoke to one editor and he told me that if he doesn't see a physical address or telephone number thenrepparttar 131819 entrants in his category "are toast." Especially if you are selling something, you need to build credibility with your customers, and in this case, withrepparttar 131820 Open Directory editors, by giving proper contact information.

4. Chooserepparttar 131821 right category for your submission. When you submit a URL to a robotic search engine there is not much to think about, but whenever you submit to a directory an important part of that submission is choosing a proper category. Go online and see where sites similar to yours have been placed inrepparttar 131822 directory. When you findrepparttar 131823 category that you think is best, then pressrepparttar 131824 add URL link. In some categoriesrepparttar 131825 editors put a note mentioningrepparttar 131826 restrictions for that category. Please heed these notes carefully and don't submit to this category if your site doesn't meetrepparttar 131827 criteria.
