I have collected some of them and put them into downloads section don,t hesitate to download,they are free.
#2 If you submit a URL more then (1) time, then there is high probability of permanent black listing of the URL on that directory specially in high PR directories.
#3 Always start your URL submissions from lower PR directories . It will give you a great advantage when you reach higher PR directories .If you start submission from high PR directories they will simply reject your proposal because high PR directories index web sites with high PR (example start=PR 0 end=PR 9 )

Friday

ARTICLES


When you submit a website or blog to search engines by your self or submission service you give them information about your website like

Title, Url, Description, keywords etc.

So do to the directories but search engines depends on there software called spiders or crawlers. On the other hand directories depends on the information submitted by user it means directories rely on the users given information and search engines do not in most cases. Search engines crawl the whole web for relevant content where ever they are

Directories looks into there relevant categories
As Featured on ArticleCity.com
against the searched keyword, means more refined search that is why unique title matching with specified category is essential for submission in directory.

No matter in how many search engines you have your site listed in major search engines like Google and Yahoo do not consider that listing as a back link

But listing in directories does considered as a link

Most impotent is that the listing in directories with good page rank boosts your page rank and traffic

There are perceptions that submit into directories then search engine spiders will automatically index your website is true. But let me clear that submission in major search engines is as important as directory submission. It is very important because if the spider locates your site through a directory then it will index your site down under the directory’s listing information of your site, Very bad from SEO point of view.

Submitting your site to web directories is a key factor in SEO. It is a tuff job to do

But could be done easily. (HOW).I will show you



Tips for effective online website promotion


Tips for effective online website promotion by John Mahoney

Website promotion is the means of generating improved traffic to your website. Once you have spent so much time in producing an effective and attractive website for your company, you have to work at website promotion so that surfers will be aware of the presence of your website.



The first thing you have to do for website promotion lies in submitting your site to search engines and directories. This is because failure of submission to major search engines leads to more time required for the search engine to be aware of your website.



So the sooner you can get your website listed on search engines like Google and Yahoo, the sooner you can reap the advantages of website promotion. Submission of your website to online directories that have been indexed by search engines is also an effective means for website promotion.



Blogging is an effective website promotion tool



Once you have your website indexed in a search engine, you have to work on improving your ranking with the right website promotion tools like blogging. As blogs will be constantly updated with new content, you get more keyword density which leads to your website turning up more in organic searches.



Moreover, the more updates you make to the site, the more frequently search engine robots visit to site to find new content. And with blogs, you can create an rss feed where users can subscribe to updates and permits syndication of content across the web. While adding content to your website, you have to use keywords everywhere on the site.



Include them in the title, headlines, hyper links and of course, in paragraphs. With the right keyword density, you are easily found on the web. However too high a keyword density does not provide effective website promotion as this is considered to be spamming and can lead to your website getting blacklisted.



Place your URL wherever possible for effective website promotion



Creating an email list and then sending out e-newsletters to these emails is effective website promotion. This is best done when you develop a steady flow of traffic where you have to send newsletters with news, events, discounts and anything special to the recipients.



The most important point of this website promotion tool is that you are reminding the recipients of your identity and your service so that they will use your services or at least refer you to friends. You can also remind friends and clients of your services by placing your URL on letterheads, emails, sell sheets, voice mails, business cards, etc. This makes it easier for them to visit you and use your services when required.



Last, but not least, is using your site visitors and customer networks for website promotion by spreading the word about the services your site provides. You could consider creating a video to place in social networking sites like YouTube or perhaps write an article for another site. Once you get the ball rolling, there will be nothing to stop your website promotion.
