Directory submission is one of the most sought after ways of increasing your back links and thereby your link popularity. Submitting your website to some of the top relevant directories will significantly improve the page rank of your website. This will be all the more successful if you have your targeted keywords or keyword phrases in the title and also in the description when submitting to the web directories.
Different directories have different ways of accepting submission.
While there are free and paid submissions, some especially the free submission directories insist on a reciprocal link from your site. Those that do not require a reciprocal link provide you with one way inbound links which are highly rated by the search engines and enables your site to rise higher in the rankings. Obtaining a high Google page rank is indeed a great asset.
Search Engine Bots visit directories frequently, especially the ones with a high page rank. If your site is listed in the directories the Bots will follow the link to your website thereby increasing the chances of your site being indexed by the search engines quickly. This is indeed a great benefit for a new website to let the search engine bots know its existence and getting it indexed soon.
Directory submission is a smart way of building Brand awareness of your business. This can be done by targeting the right business keyword or keyword phrase in the anchor text while making your submission to the directories. By submitting to a large number of websites you will automatically create awareness of your brand in the minds of people.
Though much traffic cannot be expected from most directories, there are some quality directories that do provide substantial traffic. This is good targeted traffic especially from people who search the directories for various purposes in the relevant category as yours.
Search Engine Spiders crawl directories regularly and directory submission ensures that your website gets exposure to a great majority of the search engines which will be difficult otherwise.
It is an acknowledged fact that writing articles and submitting them to article directories is the best way of attracting traffic, the search engines and also generating back links. Since many owners of websites do not posses the ability to write articles, it is much easier to submit their new websites to the directories to obtain visibility and other associated benefits.
Though directory submission is a time consuming affair, it is a process that cannot be ignored by online businesses. Many factors contribute towards the success of an online business and submission of your website to quality web directories is certainly one of them.
