Confused About Directories
Posted 07 May 2012 - 09:49 AM
First; my keyword is 3 words. Since my keyword consists of 3 words how do I input in directories when they ask for words to be separated by commas.
Second; does site description need to be detailed or can it be one sentence with my keyword
Third; what are deep links?
Fourth; if the name/title of my site is my keyword as an example will it automatically become anchor text
Fifth; might be related to fourth... how/where do I input my site title so it will be anchor text?

1. Odds are if they're asking for keywords to be separated by commas, they mean you should enter keyword phrases separated by commas, e.g. "search engine optimization, search engine marketing, internet marketing"
2. Their rules regarding site description will vary a lot, but they should indicate on the form how many characters you're permitted to enter. For the actual content of the description, a lot of directories are going to insist on a very straightforward description of what the site is about and what it has to offer. If you want to consider the ODP (dmoz.org) as a standard, they don't want you to enter any comparative or superlative terms (no "best site for" or "offers large selection").
3. Deep links are URLs for pages other than your site's home page. Some directories have an absolute rule stating that the only URL you can enter is the site's default page. Others will allow you to list a number of internal pages, usually for an additional submission fee.
4. A lot of directories that will let you put something like keywords into your listing's title are kind of spammy -- they often refer to themselves as "SEO friendly," meaning they let you get away with a lot. The more reliable directories -- the ones search engines are probably more likely to care about -- will usually require you to put your company's name and nothing else into the title.
5. Yes, this is related to #4. On the more respectable directories, you're not going to have the opportunity to put the contents of your home page's title tag anywhere, unless your home page's title tag happens to be nothing more than your company name.

Title is not valid: most likely, not unique in parent category
No matter how many categories I choose it keeps giving me the same 'error'.
