Directory Submission Service
Manual submission of your website to related directories with page rank
Submitting your website to select directories will get you much-needed permanent backlinks from relevant pages on well-established websites. It will help convince search engines of the topic and search keywords for your websites by grouping it in the same category as other similar websites.
Submitting your website to hundreds of directories, however, is a time consuming process. If you are not familiar with the directories, it will take even much longer, you will waste your time by submitting to unrelated directories, and your submission may be refused if you do not pay particular attention to the details.
Webnox Corp. offers you an affordable directory submission service. Below are the services and plans we provide. Descriptions of the plans are found in the margin on the right:
With the Premium service, we will write twenty (20) titles and descriptions for your website and use them for submissions.
With each submisison service, you get:
- manual submission by an experienced editor to select directories that match your website requirements
- review of your titles and descriptions for any spelling or grammatical mistakes (for submissions in English only)
- up to 20 different titles and descriptions to avoid search engine blacklisting
- all directories have page rank
- submission to appropriate categories to maximize acceptance of the submission
- 2 - 5 business-day completion time
- submission receipt for each directory
Please note that, while we provide a high level of service to maximize acceptance, we cannot guarantee that every submission will be accepted. Each directory has its own editors who accept or reject submissions at their own discretion.
Directory Submissions FAQ
Could I do the submissions myself, or do I need to use a paid directory submissions service?
If you have the extra time to kill, then you might as well do the submissions yourself. It will take you 2-3 days to submit to about 500 directories. We have a list of directories which you can use at the bottom of this page. Just make sure that you submit to the proper category and that you change your submission titles and descriptions. If you do your submissions properly, then the only way a good submission service can help you is by saving you time.
Are there concerns in using a submission service?
As with most online services, especially those related to website promotion, you need to take care and make sure that the company you are dealing with will provide you with a reputable service. The most common problems are related to submitting to wrong directories. To make their job easier, many services will submit your website to directories that have been penalized by Google, to pages that are not related to your website's topic, to directories that accept specific types of websites only, or to directories that require a reciprocal link. This will result in a rejected entry, or a link from an unrelated page, or, worse, an association with a penalized website. Even if a service submits your website to 2,000 directories, you need to know how many of those directories are legitimate, how many have page rank, and how many will actually accept your website. Check the list of directories for the service provider you intend to use. Go through 20-30 randomly selected directories from the list and check their acceptance conditions. This will give you a fair idea of whether the service is using just any list of directories, or a good list instead.
How long does it take to complete the submissions?
It could take up to 2 days to 100 directories, or up to 5 days for 750 directories. This is the time it takes Webnox to complete the submission of your website to the directories. What remains is for the directory to accept the submission and place your link on the proper page. Some ddirectories do it quickly, while others can take up to four months or more.
Does directory submissions improve page rank?
Yes. Directories provide your website with permanent one-way links from related pages. A new website will become PR1, PR2, or PR3 in Google withing one update just from directory submissions. Older websites which are PR5 or higher probably will not see a change in PR, but will notice a definite improvement in search rankings and traffic.
Other than page rank, is there a benefit to directory submissions?
For sure. The increase in backlinks will improve your ranking in search engine results based on the titles and descriptions you used for submission. Because your website is being listed on specialized pages, search engine will improve your ranking on related topics. That is why it is so important to submit your website to the proper category pages. Furthermore, the many different directories will provide you with an additional source of traffic which you will start noticing right away.
Is there a downside to directory submission?
Yes. There is a downside to almost anything that is not done right. You should not submit to unrelated pages, even if they will accept you. Also, you should use multiple titles and descriptions for submissions. Using only one will blacklist all similar links to your website because, to a search engine, that is obviously spam. So, it is important to submit to directories, but it is equally important to do it with care: submit to related pages only, and submit using multiple topics and descriptions.
Why do some directories require payment while others are free? Is there a difference?
The reason is economics. Everybody wants to make money, so if users are willing to pay, then the directory will charge them. Usually, older directories which have a higher page rank PR6 and above) will probably charge users. Directories with lower PR are usually free because users are not willing to pay for links on pages with low PR. Webnox submits to free directories only otherwise the costs will be too high. Almost all the directories we submit to have page rank though.
Should I use my personal email for as a contact for submissions?
Almost all directories require a contact name and email for each submission. You can provide any email adress you want, but, other than a confirmation for your submission, you can expect to start receiving many frequent advertisement emails. Some directories will even share or sell your email address. So, it may be a wise step to use a not-so-important email address, or perhaps even create a new email address just for the submissions. it is preferable to use an email address with the same domain as the website you are submitting because many directories have that as a requirement for acceptable.
Should submissions be done in intervals to get a "natural" slow buildup of links?
Some directory submission services offer a slow staggered submission service where they will submit to a limited number of directories every week. This, in our opinion, is not necessary. Free directories take a long time to review and accept their submissions. So, your link is going to be up on their web page anytime between a few days and a few months. So delaying submissions will not help much because the links will not go up all at once anyway.
What are some of the directories that Webnox submits to?
