Hi
I am not familiar with the concept of "pr exporting" of directoires.

Where can I learn it? So that from a list of directoires I can select those directories that export PR

Directories that export PR are also known as "SEO friendly". These are the ones that are worth getting a listing in, because in theory they will also boost your standing in the search engines.

These are some of the points you need to look out for:

Clean, no-nonsense links, without any Javascript redirects or 302 redirects: <a href='www.example.com'>, that sort of thing.

No rel=nofollow tags.

The page that the link is on is not hidden from search engines by robots.txt.

The directory has good ranking in the search engines, and is fully indexed.

The page your link is on should not contain too many other links, or be over 100K in file size. Because PR is shared between all the outgoing links, including those links that point back to the directory itself. It's far more valuable to be on a directory page with 10 other sites listed, than on a page that lists 100 or more.

That's all I can think of for now.

2.Whehter the site uses rel=follow tags.

Right-click and view the page source, and look for your link. If it isn't good then you will see rel=nofollow written there, or a javascript onclick event, or whatever. It won't be the kind of clean link I described above.


3. Whehter the page that the link is on is not hidden from search engines by robots.txt.

Robots.txt is always at the domain's root, for instance www.example.com/robots.txt . If there's no file there, it's good. For a detailed explanation, see the robots.txt forum.


4. Whether the site is fully indexed.

On Google, search for site:www.example.com


5. the size of the page the link exists

In IE, right-click and look at the properties.
