Manual Submission To Directories: One Of The Most Tedious Part Of Managing An Online Business

(but also one of the most crucial part)

It is time consuming, and... don't you agree... a tiny bit boring!

Because of that, many webmasters are tempted by the countless offers you find online telling you they will use a software to submit your site to 500 000 directories.

It is tempting because it is cheap, and because it looks like a huge number of backlinks!

Unfortunately, in this huge list of supposedly directories, many sites are in fact link farms with hundreds of poor quality links and often no PageRank, or FFA sites (free-for-all) where everyone can submit but your site does not stay there for a long time. Those two kinds of sites will HURT your ranking in Google, Yahoo and MSN, the 3 major search engines.

There are no major secret behind search engine optimization. You need 2 things : original and optimized content and lots of high quality backlinks.

The importance must be put in "QUALITY" backlinks. This mean links from site with high PageRank and from site with a high link popularity.

To get those quality backlinks, there are not many other options than to do it manually.

The other main advantage of submitting manually to directories is that directories are managed by humans and they will review your site for its quality and for the category you want it to go to. By submitting manually, we insure that your site will be submitted in the proper category. This increase your chances of being listed.

What to look for when you buy manual submission:

* No monthly submission fees. Why? The answer might be shocking to some of you but : there's no need to re-submit to directories! Once you have been added, you are there. Re-submitting can only get you accused of spam!

* No unnecessary fees. Some companies will lure you into their services with a low monthly fee that goes on for a year.

* Affordable price, but realistic. Submitting to directories manually takes time, an offer that sounds too good to be true might be? not good at all!

Conclusion
By using a reputable company to do the manual submission of your site, ou will save time! Instead of spending time submitting your site yourself, you can concentrate on building your next site, or growing the current one you have. This should increase your revenues faster.
