Directory Search<br />DMOZ – www.dmoz.org<br />Most important directory to get listed outside of local search;<br />A real person will review your site from multiple browsers and check your title and description;<br />Use language which is not “salesy” or self promotion but rather explanatory;<br />Use keywords sparingly – they know this game and it will not fly;<br />Allow 6 to 18 months to get listed if you are lucky;<br />Find most relevant directories by typing in your keywords plus “directory” into Google;<br />Pay per inclusion can be helpful if you have the budget;<br />
