Quick tip: Get started increasing
your link popularity now...
One of the easiest ways to quickly improve
your link popularity and drive visitors to your site is to
list your site with certain well-established directories.
Search engines heavily weigh links from these directories
and in many cases these links can count more than tenfold
towards your link popularity.
If you haven't done it already,
we recommend submitting your site to...
Best of the Web - This directory has been online
since 1994 and is heavily weighted by the major search engines.
Due to an extensive network of volunteer editors, quality
of listings is very good. Site uses direct links so visitors
are brought directly to your site (and link popularity is
properly passed). Adds listings with 3 days using its expedited
listing service. Also offers a lifetime listing option.
Yahoo Directory (not to be confused with Yahoo's
main search engine). Expensive
($299/year) but very heavily weighted. Added benefit is that
listings are often syndicated to other country specific Yahoo
directories and can provide additional incoming links. Important:
BE careful to optimize and choose your site description carefully,
since Yahoo commonly uses this description for all Yahoo searches
(search and directory). Also note that listing fee is non-refundable
and will be charged even if your listing is declined.

request. The end result is a quality hand-picked campaign
which is much more likely to succeed. Click here to
