New sites and directory submissions as a promotion method

Like many others you might have decided to make a website from passion or just to market a product or service.  Building a site isn’t easy at all and having it, is even harder. Before you even thought of having a site, you paid for hosting, you even paid for a domain name.  If you are not an expert web designer, chances are you paid a whole lot on your web site design.
After all this, you would expect to have a successful website, but things are not working as you hoped they would. As web statistics will show, your website won’t get much traffic for a while. Don’t be so shocked to see your website not getting any traffic at all. This is normal for new sites. You need to promote your website using various methods.
Link building campaigns are the base of these methods. There are lots of promotion methods available but one of the most accessible one  (that often gives great results) is doing directory submissions. Not only that directory submissions will result in incoming one-way links pointing to your website, but there is an added bonus: directory submissions will provide targeted traffic. You will probably notice right away that directory submissions take a little while to complete. The directory submission process will take a lot of time to complete. At first it might not seem like much but multiply the time it takes to submit your website to one web directory by a thousand and you’ll get the big picture.
Thus, when doing manual directory submissions it is of vital importance to submit to the top directories first. You will get to see results faster this way. Web directories can be grouped by page rank, alexa or by the number of incoming backlinks. Higher the page rank the better it is (OR the higher the number of incoming links the better it is, OR the lower the alexa number the better it is). Your task is to put together a  list of web directories where you want to submit your website to. All it remains now is to keep submitting to them. Be careful not to submit to more than 15 – 25 directories a day as search engines often penalize link building campaigns that result in a high number of incoming links each day.


Directory Links

When you are building links you have various options. One of them is to submit your website to web directories. The way you do this is the following:

  • You have a huge list of web directories.
  • You visit each directory from list
  • For each directory, you search for the category best-fitted for your website
  • Once you are in the proper category, you click the Submit/Add url link
  • You fill all the empty fields with the submission details

As you can see, first of all you must have the submission details. Submission details are the carefully chosen details such as your site title, the site description, and the keywords.

Why do I see carefully?

Some web directory owners will refuse your submission if you don’t take your time and make a porper description or if you don’t take your time to choose the best title/keywords for your site. There are certain rules that you must obey when coming up with the above details.

For example: The description must be properly written. You are not allowed to stuff keywords in it. It must make sense and it must be a proper description about your site. Most web directories require a 300 character minimum description.

The title mustn’t be to short nor to big. Same for the keywords. Don’t use too many keywords. We recommend to use 5 keywords max.

Now go cracking and submit to that directory list. Just register over at and you’ll get access to a 1000 directory list. You don’t need to buy anything. Just manually open each link in a new tab and do the steps we described above. Or buy the $10 service that 4DL is offering ( Their automatic directory submitter is the best! )


Ever wondered what’s all that fuss about link building for? Link building is a great step that every website must run through. Link building is part of the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) process, and even more (back when search engines didn’t exist, link building was the only way to make your website noticed on the web).

I have put up a guide on how to do proper link building campaign. It doesn’t matter if your website is completly new or if your website is 4 years old and it already has page rank 6.

The guide is meant to help all sites get even more traffic.
