Search Engines and directories in Sweden.

Is one of the biggest in Sweden, the results come from Google. They have their own dirctory it calls Länkguiden [eniro.se...] , but you have to mail them if you think you have a site that should be in their directory, i have tried it with good luck!

You can also search for telephonenumber to private persons and see where they live on a map.
They also ahve the yellow pages for companies.
You can also search for maps in Sweden [kartor.eniro.se...]

Pics [eniro.se...]

Roadmaps [kartor.eniro.se...]

News [eniro.se...]

Toplists over the most searches [eniro.se...]

Spanaren is a tool there you can see wjat people search on in live [eniro.se...]

Popularimetern is a tool where you can compare which search phrase that is more important than other [eniro.se...]

Add Url is the same as Google.

Lycos.se [lycos.spray.se...]

Lycos have their own webdirectory and if searches are swedish the webcat give the 3 first results if there are matches the search phrase. Lycos is powered by fast.
Here you can see searches in live [lycos.spray.se...]
Here you can compare which word that is most popular [lycos.spray.se...]

Sunet [katalogen.sunet.se...]
Sunet is one of the best webdirectories in Sweden, it takes about 2 - 3 days to get in there and you can have an english and swedish version of your site, you will be listed in 3 diffrent cats, Sunet is a first class ticket in to Google, here is the add site [katalogen.sunet.se...]
you will have a swedish address to submit the site, but friendly mail can help you be in the index, i know WebmasterWorld is addes here :-)

Open Directory [dmoz.org...]
I dont know what i should say about this but its very important to be here for swedish sites.

Sweseek [sweseek.com...]

Sweseek is a regional search engine, its a must that the site is in swedish and regional address, this might be the only directory that not recuaire an url you can be listed with just a name and phonenumber, can bring some traffic, Sweseek also have some Odp data.

Msn.se [msn.se...]
its the same as other msn portals, give some very good traffic.

Yahoo.se [se.yahoo.com...]
Its the same as other regional Yahoo¨s
You can submit to the directory with paid inclusiv [se.docs.yahoo.com...] they promise to be there in 10 days, but i recoment not to do it because no one use it, try the submit for free and be sure that you are in Goggle and you will do fine.

Catweb [catweb.nu...]
Is a directory that is human rewied and it can give you some traffic, this directory is growing alot and i really like it.I think its one of the oldest catweb was started in 1997.

Is the old euroseek they have their own spder called speedyspider, they working on some new technices but i dont know much it, it brings very little traffic, but its wourth to be there because there is a lot of meta search engines that are using theur index.

Altavista.se [se.altavista.com...]
Can bring some good traffic for diffrent topics, but i do think its getting better and better for the swedish market, they have a lot of rese´llers for the pfi and the logo in their serp.

Is the one that give you traffic, Google is outstanding here in Sweden like Google is in every other country.

And there is alot of small directories but i think i have collected the major ones here, any more question? feel free to post it and i see what i can do to answer them.
