Directories Submission Seo Rules
Posted 13 August 2007 - 03:47 PM
In my submission to directories , I noticed that the directories ask to fill in the " title" field. so, should we use the same optimized website title? or use another title specially to that directory?
I found many websites using their brand names though they are brand new, and they claim that they are offering SEO services. So, is it better to use the optimied title?

so, is there a way to distinguish between both? I mean to know either this is SEO friendly or not to take the benefit of the optimized title?

There are lots more things you need to know about directories as to not get taken though:
1: Is the page you will appear even indexed by Google? Check with Site:URL in your Google search box.
2. Is the page linking off to a bunch of (excuse me) crap sites? Google's been penalizing sites lately for selling directory links and listing anyone and everyone. Don't pay $40 for nothing.
3: Does the site rank for its own name? if it doesn't that's a sign it's been hit by Google's spam editors.
4: Do the sites use a nofollow or redirect? View source, CTRL+F and then search for nofollow in the HTML code to see if links are even going to count. Then roll over links and check the status in your browser at the bottom left. If it's a clean url to the site you expect, you *should* be ok unless they're doing something sinister changing mouseover link appearance. If it's a link with the directory's url in it, that's a redirect and won't do you any good to have a link text anyway SEO-wise.

some site asking for the site's real title. Does it mean that it was
allowed to use my site's keyword as the title in the sites that not
asking for the site's title?

before I usually submit my site to a directory.. without even checking if it's crawled by google or not or if it has a nofollow..
upon joining to different forums I learned that every directory that i should be listed must be crawled by google or doesn't have nofollow for my site to be crawled by google also..
now I'm working very hard in optimizing my sites for my sites to be crawled.. as of now I have two sites but none of them are crawled by google..

My main experience is with Yahoo Directory and have found that if I stick to their rules overall I am able to get in some target phrases and they don't edit the title and descriptions that I have added. If you just try to use strongly SEOd entries that don't fit the rules, they will cut you down the the very basics (i.e. company name only for title). I think of it as a very creative work game -- isn't that what SEO is anyway?

That may be -- I haven't counted -- but I've found that the vast majority of directories that give you a lot of leeway in determining your title aren't very high in quality.

It will make strength for those keywords high through onpage optimization as well as offpage optimization.
