on web directories...

At this very moment while writing this post, I am attending for the first time the Mindanao Bloggers Summit 3 held here in our very own City of Golden Friendship. I was really motivated to join the said event since as a neophyte blogger I want to know more about the techniques in blogging aside from the fact that I have to meet new set of blogger friends from different places.

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.

Web articles were founded last year 2007 to publish all written articles, received articles by the visitors of their network. So, they thought that creation, publishing and promoting an online article directory would be a nice idea. They tried to create a simple yet clean design, easy surfing, and comprehensive information. So this is how it looks like when you submit a blog at jasminedirectory.com:

*Email Address: jayluv_22@yahoo.com
*Site Title: LOVE’s Haven
*Site Description: a personal blog
*Keywords: family,love,experiences,home
*Enter a Password: ********
*Description: A place of safety, a place full of LOVE.
