Home Based Business – Information on Submitting Your Website to the Directories

When you submit your website URL to the Internet web directories, it is know as directory submission. It is one of the most efficient ways of enhancing the link popularity of your home based business website by getting one-way links.

If you are interested in getting inbound links you must take the directory submission route. One of the effective ways to rank higher in the search engines is to enhance the link popularity building. It does not cost much.

Basic information:

Knowing about URL — URL (Uniform Resource Locator) is a unanimously accepted terminology throughout the world. It is possible to locate any document or file on the Internet using URL which is uniform. Be careful that you don’t make even a single error of a comma or space. If there are errors the website will not be accepted by the directory editor.

Making title — The title should be small having about three four words that describe your home based business product or service on which the site is based. Keyword should be used cleverly in the title.

At the same time keyword should be randomly used 2 to 3 times in the description. An interesting description will help generate good traffic. The usage of keyword should in no way suggest as if you are doing advertisement of your website.

The anchor text:

Ensure that the anchor text or title is dissimilar to other directory. This will help you avoid spam issues. Many inbound links having the same title can be considered as spam. So if you want to have best campaigns for your website, try to alter your titles.

You can take the help of any keyword selector tool that will help you know which words to use while creating the content. This will ultimately help in increasing the popularity of your home based business.

Be careful while selecting the category for submitting your website. First find out what the proper category of your site is. You can do this by resorting to trial and error method since not all directories have one and the same method of classifying their categories.

Avoiding spam mails:

You will be required to give the e-mail address for verifying your listing. While doing so ensure that you use a different e-mail address for directory submission. This way you will not be getting those useless and unwanted spam mails in your normal inbox.

For good SEO (Search Engine Optimization) the directory where you wish to submit your website should be regularly updated. It should have high page rank on Google. Ensure that the web directory is static and is categorized properly.

The final stage:

Search engines do not index the websites which are newly launched. For search engine visibility, you will need a quick backlink support. Initially make not less than 1000 directory submissions. In the subsequent months the number can come down to 200-400 submissions per month. This will help you deal better with search engines and spam issues.

So follow these guidelines for submitting your website to right directories. This will help you generate quality traffic to your site thereby enhancing the prospects of your home based business.
