|Suggestion - Global PI Engines/Directories|
paid inclusion global engines submission
I have a big, big headache at the moment and I can't seem to find a proven way around it - I have an idea so i'm really after some feedback as to whether it will work or not, and if not - how can it be done?
I have recently been asked to promote a website on a worldwide basis. My first step was to get the website translated into all the releavant languages. All done and each language has a different URL!
The second step is to submit each url to the relevant Paid Inclusion engines/directories (require fast turnaround time!). This is where I am having serious problems!
My idea is to simply submit each country specific URL to the .com versions of the following PI engines/directories, using the relevant language (i.e. submit the French URL using Fench):
Would this work with regards to penetrating the majority of the country specific engines/directories?
Many thanks for your time, much appreciated.
Hey curly, you are on the right track. That is just what I would do.
Is this really the case? Would the volume of traffic be considerable?
Having used this methods before, what are your findings and have you achieved website visibility in all countries, e.g. mexico?
Many thanks for your time, very much appreciated.
Well, that's relative. I wouldn't bet my kids college fund on it, but the alternative languages will get you noticed.
And thats just by submitting to Yahoo, AV, Fast, Inktomi and Teoma - I'm surprised, sounds like the way forward to me.
I will perform non paid submission to the country specific engines aswell as this, just to give me the extra edge.
I owe you Bret!
Yahoo: You will have to submit to the local Yahoo sites. You will have to do submission, i.e. description and title, in local language. Prices and conditions vary between countries.
Lycos: speaking of Lycos directories, we have different situations from country to country. Some do their own directories, some don't. Some are paid, some free.
Speaking of websearch, you have to submit to their PFI programm. I would recommend going through PT at this point. Lycos is fed by ATW (AlltheWeb), so basically you do PFI to ATW.
Altavista: you have to pay extra for each targeted country.
So whats the score with local Yahoos such as Canada and India? They don't seem to have their own local directoies as you have to submit via the .com submission page. If the Indian version of my site was placed in a folder at the root of my main domain shouldn't I just submit to the main .com version, which will then give me results in the Indian engines?
Very confusing! There should be a resource on the web for global marketing strategies - maybe i will write on once I know what I'm doing!
Well, it's not realy confusing, once you you get past the notion there's one strategy for the US and one for the rest. All counries are different. In some countries there are local Yahoos, in most countries there are no Yahoo sites at all.
Some local yahoo's have no directory of their own.
In some countries other directories are far more important than Yahoo.
Bottom line: you just have to take the time to take a quick glance at each country.
