we paid the fee and got our site included in the directory portion of NBCi. Now we would like to move it up from page nowhere to page 1 or 2. Has anyone seen how they move you up once you are in a directory? Is it link popularity, number of clicks generated from their listing, or how does it work?
Being at the bottom of the directory is worse than being at the top of "member sites" as far as clicks..... Thanks.
That's what I've been told, click-pop is what causes the rise. Get your title, description, and (5??) keywords in order. Once inside, you're engaged in good ol' SEO.
Snap used to encourage you to encourage others to visit your site via the live directory. You can click on your own link, too, I'm pretty sure that counts -but don't over-do it.
However, do not record the SERP url and re-run that as a short-cut to clicking on your link or run the link through a redirect from one of your pages. NBCi apparently has a relative position parameter in the url, so as the site advances in position the url changes ever so slightly. That's pretty good protection from setting up redirects to build click-pop on their part. Whether they are using it to detect click-pop spamming schemes, or I'm just being paranoid, that's the question.
