Today we will learn about directory submission. On the internet, there thousands of directory submission sites but the most famous from them are Yahoo Directory and Dmoz.org.
Why Directory Submission
There are plenty of advantages to directory submission. Some of those are listed below;
- These directories help to promote the websites.
- Provides strong backlinks to the website.
- The website will be indexed in all search engines and related directories.
If your website is listed in DMoz.org, that will bring huge traffic and good rank to your website. On Dmoz chances of approval of your website are very rare.
Do Directory Submission
Now we will go for practical work.
Step 1: Open the website, where you will see different categories. Let’s suppose here that you want to submit a shopping cart software/plugin. So click on business.
Step 2: Now click on Ecommerce
Step 3: Now click on shopping carts, now this is our required category. Now click on the sign as I pointed by the arrow.
Step 4: This will open a form where you have to put Site URL, type of link, the title of site, and site description.
Step 5: Click on the submit button that will show you the message that submission is received.
More or less, on all directory submission websites, the method of directory submission is the same. Just you need to take the Domain authority of that directory submission site. Normally, a site having DA above 40 is OK to submit your website in that.
