Directories are a Great Resource

Directories are a great resource

Directories are a great resource for marketing your site to a variety of users. Traffic may come from the directory itself, or can come in the form of residual traffic from the search engines that crawl and collect data from directories like The reason that the a link in can be so important is that directories are respected by search engines and each topic is themed around an individual subject. Having your site linked to in such a themed manner can add weight to a search engine viewing your site as an "expert" in the subject your site is about which can result in higher ratings in the search engines. Also, research organizations know the value of using human edited directories as a resource because of the accuracy in results. If you have a Web site, be sure to add your site to Directory Listing Services
