Most directories will not let you submit a link to an internal page within your site (only your home page).

Does anybody know why?

It seems that if a directory caters to a specific group. You would want to submit that link within your site that will benefit that particular group

For the most part, directories are designed as lists of sites that are relevant to some particular category. As such, they link to a listed site's home page as a way of linking to the whole site.

some of the better/higher page ranked pay directories allow for deep links, sometimes offering up to 2 or 3 deep links. you'll have to check around. most free directories are almost exclusively for linking to the front page. Home site usually is the hub and says/starts it all so it seems like a logical place to link if only allowing one inbound link

There are now a lot of deep link directories popping up that accept specific page URLs.
I see them as hybrids between directories and social bookmarking sites biggrin.gif
A google search should come up with some of these directories.

Will they cause harm? Probably not. Definitely not if you have other good quality links pointing to you and you never link back to the directories.

Will they help? Maybe, maybe not. It depends upon the specifics.

Worst case scenario is that the links might not count for any value, so you would have wasted your time in submitting in the first place.

...and money. The directories I know of that allow links to internal pages (such as Directory Journal and Business.com) tend to charge higher submission fees.

Naval,

Its all about search and discovery.

I should point out that if common sense is applied that should help you to decipher which directories are worth submitting to.

On the subject of directories, perform a search for obviously..."site submission directories" and as if by pure magic...thousands of them will appear before your eyes!

And anyway, If your pages of your site are relevant to your home page (which they should be) why do you feel the need to deep link(?) Personally I think its a waste of time and possibly cash!

I believe that the reason for the exclusion is based on the fact that the software used by most directories has (or had) problems identifying duplicate submissions unless the url is exactly the same. As a result many directories only allow homepage links to stop people from spamming them with a bunch of submissions from the same site.

If you go about it the proper way, ofcourse it does good, the proper way is visiting each of these sites individually and manually submitting your site to them, that way you can use different titles and descriptions and only submit to sites that don't require a link back, one way link carry heavy weight than reciprocal links and doing that makes it appears natural to search engines and help your ranking but if you use an automated submitter you will be doing serious harm because then if you automate it to submit to 100 sites all the submissions will read same title and description which will be seen as spamming by search engines and could get your site banned

Manual submission takes time and it's very boring, but there are people who render this service for a rock bottom price, so if you'll like some one-way links but don't have that much time to waste on submission then you pay for it, whatever is worth doing is worth doing well

It's not going to get you banned. If your company name is Bob's Books and all your backlinks are anchored by "Bob's Books" that's not going to get you in any trouble. Even if the anchors are all just "books" it's not going to get you banned. But it's also not going to make you #1 for a search on [books].

The reason you shouldn't auto-submit your site to tons of garbage directories is because links from garbage directories are garbage. They're not going to help you, so it's just a waste of time and money.
