Directories are a great way to get one-way links, but let’s be honest; they are some pretty bad and very good directories, so how do you know which one is the best one to choose to promote your blog.
Well, design goes along way with me, because I feel that if they have put that time and effort [or money] into the design, they are going to put the same into promoting it.
How many directories do you see that is a plain template, boring design? This tells me that they can’t be bothered to make the directory look good, and if they aren’t going to spend the money getting a good template, then they aren’t going to spend money promoting it.
I thought I would list a few directories which I like the design of and seem to promote the directory well on the internet.
Just this morning I found out about a new web directory by Mugi Pacco, which has a very cool design and seems to be promoted well on webmaster forums. My tip for submitting to directories, is choose your directory well [on target but look at the Google PR] and write an attractive title and description.Tweet
