Initially when Google was not there, people used to go on web directories to search for any information.
Directory submission is defined as the practice of submitting website URL and its details on the web in a directory under a particular category.
This is a way which helps you to improve your link building and get quality Backlinks.
Directory Submission is an off page factor which helps to optimize your webpage. In these directories, your own website is submitted to another website.
Three types of Directory Submissions
- Paid or Featured Web Listing: In this, the owner of Directories site will charge for Submission and your link will be approved in some moment or within 24 hours. This will help you in getting Backlinks from this type of submission.
- Free or Regular Web Listing: It is free for Directory Submission, no one charges for free or regular submission but there is no guarantee of the websites getting approved by the Administrator. Also, this involves time.
- Reciprocal Regular Web Listing: In this, a reciprocal link must be submitted to your site when you activate Directory link, only then the Directory administrator will approve your link.
