The Link Experiment (Part 1)

7 12 2007

When you’ve just built a new site, one of the first concerns is how to get people to come and see all the amazing work you’ve been doing. One of the more popular ways to start pushing your site above the surface and on to the radar is by submitting it to web directories. But as with most things in life, the top prizes come at top prices. There is however, a multitude of free directories waiting for you to submit your url.

If you google ‘free web directories’ for example, you’ll find a query list of universal proportion. So not only do you have to contend with the sheer quantity of directories out there, but on top of that you have to embark on a process of weeding the good from the bad, sorting the reputable sites from the viral spam sites.

Today, I’m going to make that process much easier for you because below is a list, in descending order by page rank and alphabet, of some of the web’s better directories. It goes from the ubiquitous dmoz.org to the lesser known, though nonetheless noble, LinkPrestige.com.

What I aim to do over the coming days is to submit my new games arcade site to all of these directories. It will be an extremely laborious task but I have devised a submission method to alleviate some of the pain. I will share that method with you in part two of this directory link experiment. The overall aim of the experiment is to try and get a sense of what relevance and what impact submitting links to directories has on a new site. I will be posting details of the experiment in part 2 over the coming days so stay tuned if you’re interested.

If you decide to submit to any of the links below please leave a comment here about your experience and of course if you happen across a dead link or a directory is no longer running, please also point it out here. Thanks for reading and happy submissions!

Ages, though I did over quite a long period of time. I’d really only advise on submitting to the highest ranking sites. The rest is not worth the trouble. Good luck!
