|How Do you Choose a Directory to Submit Your Website To?|
If you created a website and wish to submit it to link directories, analyze the following factors before submitting your link because not all the directories are worth to submit to, especially if you are placing a reciprocal link or pay a submission fee.
Evaluate the link directory from these sides:
1. Directory page rank
You'll want PR 4 or higher. But when the submission is free and doesn't require a reciprocal link exchange, then you may submit to a directory with a lower PR especially if this is a highly related niche directory which has a lot of very targeted traffic.
2. Directory link popularity
Good directories care about increasing their links value which in turn increases their attraction to webmasters. Fast Directory Submitter will help you analyze the link popularity of a directory (and any other website).
3. PR of the page your website will be placed on
If the home page has a high PR, it doesn't always mean that particular pages of the directory will also have a good PR. You'll want to check the page where your link will appear for PR value.
4. Number of links on each page
Less links on the page is better. Because the more links the page has, the more watered down your link will be.
5. Category your link will appear in
The more relevant to your niche and more closer to the home page category the better. You don't want to be 6 steps from the home page.
