Manual Submission to Search Engines or Directories

Return to Internet Marketing Resources Home or to Search Engine Optimization Resources Home

The need for manual submissions is really a thing from the past and I would not recommend to use them. However, the forms at search engines still exist and work and people are looking for them for one reason or another.

If you have a new site and want to get your site found by the search engines and get your site crawled by their spiders, go out there and get inbound links to your site from another website that is being crawled and already indexed in the search engines. A easy way to get those inbound links is the submission of your site to the major directories that are known to be accepted by the search engines as quality directory. Don't put your links on "free for all" (FFA) link farms or low quality directory. You can find a list of quality directories in the next paragraph on this page. Except for Dmoz and one or two others, require all directories a few for reviewing your site submission. It seems to look like a lot of money, but it is IMO worth the investment.

Search engines will find your site naturally, if their crawler finds a link to it on another website, what some believe to be benefital compared to being "found" via the submission form or if you submit a sitemap to the engines.

Web Directories and Search Engines Directories

Return to Internet Marketing Resources Home or to Search Engine Optimization Resources Home

It may sounds strange, but there are directories for directories and search engines. Web directories that list other web directories.

The internet is growing in size quickly. Going vertical and specializing in a niche is one way to combat information overkill from general search engines and directories.

Targeted search engines and directory are specific and right on topic without the clutter. The directories of directories help you to find those niche directories about your niche where you should submit your website to.

  • Directory List is a Web Directory of Directories.
  • What are the Strongest Directories? Page 2 - List of Directories Sorted by "Page Strength" (Tool by SEOMoz) for SEO purposes. Also includes submission and listing fees.
