Free web directory and business web directory

Most of the web directories are very general in scope and list websites across a wide range of categories, regions and languages. But there are also some niche directories which focus on restricted regions, single languages, or specialist sectors. One type of niche directory with a large number of sites in existence, is the business directory for example. A Business directory is a website or print media listing of information which lists all businesses within some category. Businesses can be categorized by business, location, activity, or size. Business may be compiled either manually or through an automated online search software. Examples of Business Directory’s that are available out there online and offline such as Yellow Pages.

The details provided in a business directory will vary. They may include the business name, addresses, telephone numbers, location, type of service or products the business provides, number of employees, the service region and any professional associations. Some directories include a section for user reviews, comments, and feedback.

Examples of well known, general, web directories are Yahoo! Directory and the Open Directory Project (ODP) also known as Dmoz. ODP is significant due to its extensive categorization and large number of listings and its free availability for use by other directories and search engines.

Web directories have various features in listing, often depend upon the price paid for inclusion:

a. Free submission : there is no charge for the review and listing of the site
b. Reciprocal link : a link back to the directory must be added somewhere on the submitted site in order to get listed in the directory
c. Paid submission : a one-time or recurring fee is charged for reviewing/listing the submitted link
d. No follow : there is a rel="nofollow" attribute associated with the link, meaning search engines will give no weight to the link.
e. Featured listing : the link is given a premium position in a category (or multiple categories) or other sections of the directory, such as the homepage. Sometimes called sponsored listing.
f. Bid for position : where sites are ordered based on bids
g. Affiliate links : where the directory earns commission for referred customers from the listed websites

Besides Dmoz Open directory, There are some web directories I recommend the business web directory and free web directory. You can submit your blog /web to web directory, linking between websites is an important part of the search engine optimization process because Google uses link popularity algorithms (defined as the number of links that led to a particular page and the anchor text of the link) to rank websites/blog.

Postingan ini sebenarnya postingan pesanan PTR, karena keyword dan anchor text sudah ditentukan oleh pemesannya, agar tidak terlalu melenceng dari judul dan diapproveoleh pemesannya maka saya tambahkan link dmoz mewakili yang free dan dua link berikutnya versi business. Sekalipun sangat susah diaprove di dmoz karena diseleksi oleh tim dmoz.
