Search Directory Submissions

Search directory submission is the first promotion task and is a good way to launch a new site creating enough link popularity to convince the engines to spider it regularly. Search directory submissions are still important and is the start to your link building efforts.

    There are three types of directory:
  • the General purpose (Yahoo! & Open Directory)
  • the Business Directory
  • the Vertical or special interest Directory

A major Internet directory will always have a "human being" reviewing your website. Anytime a human editor is involved, there is a high probability that the submission will be edited, shortened, and/or keywords from your submission omitted.
What goes on the submission form is critically important!
Search directory submissions are usually ranked according to the information provided in the submission details, as opposed to actual optimisation information on the website.

Directory Submission Package

We do category research to ensure your site's submittion is to the most appropriate category in each directory. We ensure that descriptions carefully edited using your most important "keywords" according to each directory's specified criteria.

    The Search Directory submissions package includes:
  • Submission of your site to all the Major directories
  • Submission to +/- 100 General & Business directories 
  • Submission to all of the vertical / specialty directories that relate to your website
  • Submission to the top South African search / business directories

Please note, we submit all websites to the directories with no Fee-for-review fees, however, submission to selected Fee-for-review directories is recommended. Each Fee-for-review directory submission selected by the client, will be billed in addition to our search directory submissions fee.
