Many know that the power of the link helps in search engine ranked positioning. A link is a vote that your website has something of value. Therefore, you have added a submission request in DMOZ.org Open Directory Project, which may take some time to actual list, but immediately thereafter, you are also in Google Directory as Google takes a direct feed from DMOZ.org
Additionally, by inclusion into DMOZ.org, you will automatically be included in many search engines’ exclusive directories such as:
> Ask Jeeves In addition, an approximate 2,000 DMOZ.org clone sites (simply a website that also uses DMOZ.org directory information) will archive your listings. Only about 100 of these sites may offer any value but this is accomplished simply by being accepted in DMOZ.org so not additional work on your part.Now what’ Well they are many other directories online that are worth the time to submit your information some are, general all encompassing directories like:
Ok so I did that, now what’ Well going through Google directory itself will help find more directories to list in including many content specific ones that may only allow submission of sites like yours. Ok I found many new places to submit and list and it did take some time but completed, now what’ Well DMOZ.org (thus Google directory) only has a very small fraction of the total number of directories that are out there. Why not go to Google.com and type in ‘directory’ and ‘directories’. Hmmm’ while you are at it ‘ do not forget to type in your primary targeted keywords and/or keyphrases into Google.com and add +”directory” and
+”directories” after the primary word or phrase. You would be surprised at how many “submit your site” sites are out there totally on topic to your site, and with a listing waiting for you! Remember the simplicity of the web is being linked, the challenge, is making those links meaningful and finding the right balance between incoming and outgoing links.
