Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
But i am faced with this dilemma
I can submit it at 3 level deep or 10 level deep
1. For 3 level deep the pros are
Nice PR (pagerank)
Lots of relevant links from other users hence rich content
Too many links means less probability of someone visiting my client's site.
2. For 10 level deep the pros are
No links other than mine hence good click probability
No page rank or content
Which this situation what do you think should be the best way to submit. Any other pros or cons that anyone can find here ?
thanks for reading
If - by chance - you are talking about the open directory, and the above catebgories are topical and regional sorting, submit to both.
So my advice is, make a reasonable effort to submit to a relevant category. But don't sweat it, because directories are organised as the editors see fit.
If you submit to a higher level as an attempt to gain more traffic, you will only succeed in slightly ticking off the editor, who will consider you too lazy to make a proper submission. And if you can't be bothered to follow the rules, will the editor be inclined to take the time to fix it for you?
1) Topical/Regional branch - because we do list sites sorted by both criteria (of course only if the site is relevant to a topical category and to a regional one. For example an ice-cream factory can be liosted by the topic ice-cream and, due to being a real world brick and mortar factory, has regional importance as well).
2) multilanguage sites (not babelfish copies of course, sites really targeted to the audience in that language) can be listed in all available languages.
Which, for the multilanguage site of a big ice-cream factory could result in lots of listings. And of course you can suggest your site to all places it could be listed in.
Not encouraged are submissions to multiple topical categories. The decision to list a site in several of them (because it seems important to several of them) is solely made by editors upon importance. No idea how other directories handle that, but I am farely sure that none will label you a spammer for 2 suggestions.
