How to Use Directories for Web Site Promotion By: Rich Brunelle
If you are not using Web Directories for your Web Site Promotion, you are not aware of benefit they provide. Directories, Link Engines, and Internet Directories are not all created equal. But, if they are categorized, database driven, and end result is publishing static HTML pages or other Search Engine Friendly documentation of your web site information, they are worth their weight in gold.
datajam's Internet offers eight different databases for Internet Users to submit their URL data to. To facilitate conversion to Search Engine Friendly data on our older databases we publish data as HTML and Text to our web site. We decided to try a different approach for our more recent databases.
At http://djam-promo.com we have "datajam's COOL Site Index." This is a brand new database and we decided that we would select from submitted sites, a few per month to write articles about. We realize that this would not create a complete Search Engine Friendly directory. But, it will highlight those sites selected in an instantly beneficial manor. We also liked idea of actually performing our own review of web sites once in a while. This database does have User Review and Rating capability for Users that wish to offer their own independent assessment of web sites.
Another new database, "datajam's Internet Web Directory" is at http://promo.glwb.info . The neat thing about this database is daily rebuilding complete directory from data submitted to a complete HTML based site. This makes data very Search Engine Friendly. Our test submissions to this site reflected linkage discovered by some of major search engines within a week. We find this very impressive.
