Getting Found through LinkDir: A Walk-Through of an Internet Marketing Directory

Internet Marketing
To the uninitiated, a web directory is no different from a search engine. While it is through that there are some similarities between these two online technologies, a web directory is categorically different from a search engine. The four most pronounced differences of web directories as compared to search engines are:

• They do not search for your website, you have to get your business listed in them; • They are generally managed and maintained by human administrators, whereas the magnitude of the search engine functions necessitate the use of bots; • They index significantly lesser sites than search engines; and • They index sites more appropriately content-wise.

Getting listed Businesses are required to submit their sites to a directory in order to get listed and avail of managed Internet marketing promotion. Registration generally entails submission of pertinent business site information and the Uniform Resource Locator (URL) of the site. Customarily, online registration forms are filled in with the following information: name of website, URL, site description, keywords, contact details, and some other information which is dependent on the particular web category you are dealing with.

LinkDir: An Internet marketing directory As regards to LinkDir, Internet marketing directory requirements for getting listed are: user name, contact email, password, user identification information, a short description of the user, and an improvised CAPTCHA to verify that the registration is being made by a human. Registration is free and seconds after creating your company’s account, a confirmation email is sent to the email contact you provided. You will be charged depending on the listing package you will choose before registration once you submit a site and the submission is approved. Listing packages are priced $3, $6, $9, and $15, all in recurring monthly subscriptions. The website which you will submit to LinkDir is termed as a listing. While use of backlinks is a proven and tested Internet marketing strategy and is a perfect avenue for Internet marketing advertising LinkDir listing packages are set as nofollow. A nofollow indicates that it should be disregarded by web search engine crawlers. LinkDir used the nofollow attribute in its listing directory in compliance with Google recommendations. Google adopts nofollow backlinks as a precaution against unreliable content, to prioritize its crawling procedure, and in relation to paid sites. The LinkDir homepage is simple but well-designed. A cursory look at the homepage aesthetically presents a one-stop-directory for individual businessmen and organization representatives searching for possible business deals and/or collaboration. The homepage body shows the categories of Internet marketing services represented in the listings on top, and new listings below. The sidebar displays featured listings. The homepage image atop the body is dynamic and a keyword search feature is provided. Instead of a corner element in the homepage layout which is commonly used to display the contents of the site, a menu is used and strategically placed on top of the banner element. When anyone of the categories is clicked, the user is navigated to the listed business/es under that category. Clicking any of the recently added listings brings the user to another webpage showing options visit the website, contact the business owner, add the business as favorite, or bookmark and in share Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Blogger, etc. The share link also permits printing the business info or emailing a link to the webpage. Go for it! It is simply so easy to be found on the Net by people and businesses who need your Internet marketing services. What are you waiting for? Getting listed is a passport to LinkDir’s concurrent Internet marketing advertising and exposure to extensive Internet marketing promotions on the World Wide Web.
