Who to submit to
What are the best directories to submit to these days for the UK market.
Don't mind if they are free or not.
There is this library thread:
But even it is now well out of date so this is a topic we probably should discuss.
However this is not a thread where will allow self promotion.
For each directory suggested, it would be appropriate to give reasons why it is worth submitting to. (e.g. Provides results to x,y & z, solid traffic, free, listings prominent i.e. not PPC ad ridden)
Open Directory Project
Still worthwhile and provides results into many clones, solid traffic over the long term. Many UK categories are not overfull.
One of the earliest internet directories, still worthwhile as the categories are shown in Yahoo SERPs when the site appears in results. Now free submission on UK is an extra bonus
Provides results to Google local and has good traffic in its own right.
Provides results to Toxic Lemon, provides reasonable traffic.
How do you get on Yahoo UK directory, haven't they dropped it?
What would be your opinion on submitting to
for the UK Market.
UK Yahoo submission link
So its still free?
So I take it that you have to be a Yahoo user then?
Yes you have to have a Yahoo Account to login to submit sites, but it isn't that difficult to get one.
Hi, the link posted above is to submit your site to get crawled and not to submit to the directory. There is a "suggest a site" link in the categories in the directory itself.
BTW, does anyone know how long it should take to get listed in the directory? I submitted 2 sites back in January and still no sign of them getting listed :(
Anyone know if it's a case of submit once and wait forever (ala DMOZ) or if it's worth while resubmitting?
I submitted a few sites to the Yahoo! directory when a free option was offered, but none of the sites ever got in.
Instead it looks like Yahoo! want you to pay the $299 yearly fee.
