About Web Directories
Web directories-especially ones that are hyper-focused on one niche, are very different from search engines like Google, Bing, Ask.com etc. in two ways:
- Most directories-the high-quality ones, are edited by humans.
- Web addresses are not gathered automatically; they are submitted by website administrators and owners.
One advantage of having a website submitted manually to a web directory is that it’s going be submitted under the proper category. Once that’s done, search engines like Google should have an easier time finding it. And that’s the goal here; to increase your chances of getting found online.
Hundreds of thousands of websites are created every week. You must find ways to tip the odds of getting found by the search engines in your favor. One way to do that is by submitting your information to web directories that are focused on your niche.
All Directories Are Not Created Equal
Not every web directory-there are thousands of them, are created equal.
Some are ranked higher by the search engines; some are not.
Here are 4 good ones:
According to Aaron Wall, a top SEO expert who started the highly regarded SEO Book website, “The single biggest reason to list in directories is they help search engines understand what your site is about and help improve your relevancy.”
The good directories have a few things in common. They are:
Human edited- each and every listing is checked over, and if it’s determined to be a spammy website, it’s not added. Also, old websites that don’t exist anymore are deleted from the directory. Doing that helps the directory keep a favorable search engine rating.
Few Advertisements- quality directories are not stuffed with ads. Web directories, like the Franchise Biz Directory, aren’t focused on advertising revenue.
Content- niche web directories offer valuable content in addition to their listings. Today’s search engine engineers are focused on finding the best information available for their end users. High-quality content that’s included in a web directory sends a powerful signal to the search engines; that’s why the Franchise Biz Directory includes great content. Of course, great content also attracts prospective franchise candidates, and that’s what we want. Right?
Crawled often- good directories are crawled often by search engines. In addition, they’re accessed by humans who are looking for very specific information.
