Web Directory

Web directory submission is probably one of the quickest and easiest way to build links on the Internet. The reason why webmasters want to build links is because they want to rank well in the search engines. You see, the more back links a website has, the better it will rank in the search results. That will lead to the inevitable - more traffic!

There are many link building methods. Some are easier to execute than others. Web directory submission belongs to the "easy to execute" category. You don't need to do much to submit links to the web directories. All you need is a valid website that is not under construction, some keywords, an email address, and a brief description of the URL. The same information will then be submitted to all the web directories.

The only challenge with this method is that it can be time consuming and boring. No one wants to sit around to submit links to web directories. As an Internet business owner, you shouldn't be doing that too. Therefore, you must look for alternative solutions. Here are 2 suggestions.

1) Pick the right directories.

There are a plethora of web directories on the Internet. It's almost impossible to submit to all the web directories you come across. To save time, make a list of web directories that have high page rank (at least 3 and above). Focus on these web directories, and get your links approved. Forget about the rest. As you release more websites, use back the same list. Watch for page rank updates, and keep your list updated. Sometimes, a new directory may acquire a high page rank. You can look out for such directories as webmaster forums.

If you can afford the time, you may want to include a few web directories with page rank 2 or less. In this case, make sure that the web directories have search engine friendly URLs, and they don't require reciprocal links.

2) Outsource web directory submissions.

There are internet marketers who hire others to submit their URLs to hundreds (or thousands) of web directories. The cost will depend on the number of submissions that you are gunning for. The more directories, the higher the cost.

When you outsource, there is no need for you to sit at the computer and submit the URL one at a time. All the work is done for you. You may, however, have to provide a valid email address so that confirmation emails can be sent to you. You may then login to your email account and click on all the confirmation links once submission has been completed. A full report should be provided, letting you know where your links have been submitted.

The entire process may take between 2 to 7 days, depending on submission volume. Be patient, and remind the service provider if the wait gets a bit too long.
