Knowing more on Web Directories

I am so excited for this coming July 17, 2009 for I will be joining our 2nd workshop for CDO bloggers. I have heard from a friend who had attended the 1st workshop that she really learned a lot out from it. As a neophyte blogger I was so motivated to join such since there are still new terms or shall I say unknown words that I really have to know more about. So I guess I really have to devote my time in doing some research just for me to be familiarized and have a little bit background of it.

At first I didn’t know what web directory is all about I mean the purpose of doing it and all. Even though I have already submitted one in the Yahoo directory years ago and maybe to some of you in business.com but still I did it without even knowing it. Lol! That was the time that I had to search about the term and just found that it is also known as the link directory. This is the directory on the World Wide Web that specializes in linking to other web sites and categorizing those links. Before I used to think that it is a search engine, I just recently knew that I was wrong. It does not display lists of web pages based on keywords but instead, it lists web sites by category and subcategory. When one has categorized it is usually based on the whole web site rather than one page or a set of keywords and sometimes sites are often limited to inclusion in only few categories.

Now I know that web directories often allow site owners like me to directly submit their site for inclusion, and have editors review submission for fitness. That was the time that I understand why my cousin sent me an invitation to submit my site in her SEO friendly web directory- a human edited web directory. Only to find out that by doing such it will really help my site to gain higher search engine results and provides a permanent regular and featured links.
