Resource Directory Development-The Yellow Pages of the Internet

  1. 1. Resource Directory Development- The Yellow Pages of the Internet
  2. 2. Directory development is a growing popular method forgaining quality content and traffic for a website. Resource directories consist of a number of links to other sites within a category of the directory-Just like the Yellow Pages organize businesses by category. Website ownerswho are considering using directories to promote their siteshould know why directories are important and what they do. And those who are considering their own directory should know about resource directory development.
  3. 3. Many websites seek out directories they can submit to. On a daily basis a website owner will seek out severaldirectories and add their site. This increases their number of inbound links, and well as increasing their visibility on the internet.
  4. 4. Tips for Submitting to Directories
  5. 5. *Include the most important keywords in the title.
  6. 6. *Submit your homepage. Directories will typically not accept extensions. It is good if your URL has your keywords in it.
  7. 7. *Write a good description free of grammatical errors. Itwill save time to write two descriptions, one long and one short, for different directories.
  8. 8. Some directories focus on a particular niche, while othershave categories for just about everything. An example of a targeted directory would be one that only accepts sites about search engine marketing or search engine optimization. Choosing a niche directory that relates to the keywords of the site will help bring more visibility to that particular directory as well as the links.
