Sumbmitting you "directory listing" on crawler engines
Will it increase link popularity to submit our listings?

Hi all!

I have a question regarding increasing link popularity:

How does search engine find your link (your listing) to other search (directory) engines?

It is not an automatic task?
I thought that searchengines can search theirself for that.

For example if I have listings on Looksmart, NBCI, Yahoo, DMOZ etc, should I submit that listings to other search engines like Altavista, Excite, Inktomi based search engines etc. ?

And what exactly should I submit?

For example, searching on Yahoo for "Holiday in Hungary", I got this directory


Should I submit that directory where I have a site or should I submit the URL that appear when I point the mouse to my URL (something like "http://srd/yahoo.com/drst/26707499/*http://www.mysite.com?"

I apologize for my silly questions: think about me as I were a Civil Servant clerk.

Most search engines do regularly crawl the major directories, (with the exception of NBCi which doesn't allow bots) so your listing should end up getting indexed even if you don't submit. If you want to speed up the process, just submit the URL of the page your listing appears on.

Thank you WebGuerrilla!

So that this is true for any listing.

If I am linked to a site that is not listed in some search engines I can submit that page to the searchengines! :-)
