For example, try to grab top position in Google for ‘investment’ or ‘traffic’ or ‘diet’ without a high page rank and you will quickly find you have virtually no chance. Ultimately page rank is like trust rank for Google as well as for webmasters therefore I fail to understand why some people will not learn that they just can’t fool Google with their stupid tricks.

Search Engine Optimization is not just submitting to major search engines and looking for traffic to come. You have to get in top rankings in SERP’s (Search Engine Results Page) on the related keywords for your website. To get these top rankings, you need to build backlinks or in other terms you have to do link building.
Article submission is one of the most popular ways of website promotion and link building today. It is an excellent way to brand yourself and your website with very little, if any cost involved. Article submission is a great tactic and the rewards can be plentiful, it is is a key aspect in search engine optimization and neglecting this means voluntarily saying goodbye to untapped, traffic, opportunities and resources.
No doubt many of the today’s big fishes of SEO Industry termed Article submission as a no-no seo technique due to the efforts you have to make in building original and unique content then submitting it to online article publishers. But we all can see clearly that they did and still doing the same by writing guests articles on different blogs and websites. So isn’t this a little unfair to stop people doing what they are doing?
The SEO advantage in article submission is that the search engines give far more weightage to unique content and the links embedded in the content. Therefore article submission will have several positive effects on your website.
We all know that original content is what the web and the major search engines are screaming out for. An experienced SEO knows the power of original, unique content and therefore that is why they deliver it to the search engines by the truck full. That is why they can truly call themselves Search Engine Optimizers.
Getting the unique content distributed online so that your website and links can be seen by a greater audience is vital in Search Engine Optimization. The article itself will create content for the back link that is relevant to your website, as all of the top search engines love good content, article submission can be a very effective and much better way to improve the search engine ranking and link popularity of your website than just about any other method currently available.
You will get your article published all over the web when you submit it to article publishers or to those online article submission services that has a free content directory on their web site. For especially large or successful portals, you might even offer to produce unique content for their portals in exchange for the publicity, rather than simply offering articles you have previously run in your own portal. Your articles are then potentially published on thousands of article sites where webmasters or bloggers seeking free content pick up the articles and publish them on their blogs and niche sites.
In essence article submission is the only free way to promote your website on multiple desired keywords and produces real results almost immediately. Thankfully article submission is still a white-hat, ethical technique used by Search Engine optimizers to gain new one way links and help promote their website or specific link urls. Oh Yes! we can do it in an old fashioned black hat way, too

According to Wikipedia
A web directory is a directory of websites on the World Wide Web. It specializes in linking to other web sites and categorizing those links.
A web directory is not a search engine and does not display lists of web sites based on keywords; instead, it lists web sites by category and subcategory. The categorization is usually based on the whole web site rather than one page or a set of keywords, and sites are often limited to inclusion in only a few categories. Web directories often allow site owners to directly submit their site for inclusion, and have editors review submissions for fitness.
Web directory submissions is one of the most popular way of free link building and getting one way links. Webmasters are always in search of the high quality web directories and free web directories. All the major search engines like Google, Yahoo and Msn has there own web directories and listings in these directories are free as well as paid. These directories can be found here
We can categorize the web directories in two primary types.
- Human Edited Web directories
- Automated Web Directories
Human Edited Web directories:
A human edited web directory is maintained by a human. All the websites are added after the editor personally review’s them. They mostly are paid but there are some free ones too.
Automated Web Directories
These are the directories which are maintained by automated software. On submission they look for the defined values and if a website agrees to those values, they list it instantly. These can be free as well as paid listed directories.
We can also majorly categorized the website directories in three types.
Local Web Directories
Local web directory is a directory which shares the same top level domain extension as the submitted sites. Lets say you have website whose TLD Extension is .co.uk then all the web directories having .co.uk TLD Extensions are the local web directories for your website.
Niche web Directories
These are the web directories that list only the specific subject or industry related websites like directories for web designers lists only the web design related websites.
General Web Directory
These are the normal web directories with no restriction of industry or country
Web directory Submission is the first step of Off Page SEO for any website. Submission in web directories is an on going process for some SEO’s whereas some SEO’s suggests that submission in big and major directories are enough for a website. Beside free web directories there are countless Paid web directories which claim to be a little more seo friendly and authoritative in comparison to free directories and they ensure fast approval.
When Submitting to web directories, follow the below points and you will get maximum results of your submissions.
- Don’t start submission in every single directory you find. Make some standard for instance start with the web directories that has high Google PageRank.
- When submitting into web directories, submit your website in the most related category. This will increase the chances of approval.
- Use the Category words in your Title and Description. Lets say if you are submitting your website in Pets categories, the title should contain word PET in it.
- Analyze the other existing websites in the related category and see what they use in there title and description.
- Using the email id on your domain increases the chance of approval, though its not necessary in most of the cases.
- Don’t use software’s. Do it manually.
- Avoid directories which aren’t listed in Search Engines, as they may be penalized or banned.
- Use different Titles as well as descriptions.
- Conclusively, the answers of the question that Is Directory Submission worth it is yes it does.

An active and ongoing link building campaign should be part of every website’s SEO strategy. Why? Cause you are not the only person doing that business on the internet. There are thousands of people on the web doing exactly the same business like yours. Sure, you don’t have to continue looking for sites to request links from, but you should spend your time on link building once the site development and designing phase get finished. It is just as important as indexing your site in the engines and maybe more as the engines will find you if you’re well linked to but may drop you from there index if you’re not.
What Is Link Popularity?
Link popularity or link popularity building is a general term which means that how many other websites are linking to yours. But this is not it. They move forward by looking what type of content those sites contain even that how many sites link to them i.e. their self link popularity and what was the anchor text in their link to your site says.
Search Engines score your website based on this information. Sure there is a lot that come into consideration when Search Engine ranks some website but the important thing to remember here is that it’s not the quantity of inbound links but the quality of the websites linking to you, and how relevant they are to your website. There are thousand of those premium link directories out there that can boost your link popularity.
What is link spamming?
Link spamming is a process to artificially inflate or increase your link popularity. There are a variety of ways to do this. For example those highly visible link farms, where hundreds of websites have the same links page on which they all, regardless of their site’s content, link to each other to web logging to creating loads of mini websites just for the purpose of linking them to your main website.
But remember that Search Engines are now able to discover this and can penalize or ban websites for using these methods. If you secure inbound links on informative sites you are going to get qualified traffic as well as ranking whereas link farms or web logging won’t bring you any.
