Can we get traffic from Dir Submission ?

Discussion in 'Search Engine Optimization' started by 28081981, Dec 1, 2008.

  1. #1
    For example, if we make a new website with above avg content, and we submit it to about 1000 dir from PR 5 to 2 (manually), can we get some visitors from it consistently ?

    Any observations ?

    We can get a very little traffic from directories. :D Directories are used to gain one way links for your site, nowadays, they are not used for building traffic anymore.

    i dont think that now a days directories are a huge source of traffic. today they are used only for having a oneway link to your site and that way you can increase the backlinks to your site. but surely you forget about traffic from there. :D

    Yes, you can get backlinks but it is time consuming. You have to submit in more directories then only you can get one or two backlinks.

    I don't think we people get much traffic from directories. There can be some instances where you get 1-2 clicks in a day from some big directories like Dmoz, Yahoo Dir or Google dir

    But one should not expect getting regular and high amount of traffic from directories

    Least chances of traffic from web directories unless you're having the featured listing on homepage. That still gives you bit of traffic.

    Like what others have said, directories don't provide much traffic for your site. You can still get traffic but this will only give a few clicks.

    If you would like to drive traffic for your site, focus more on other link building methods such as blogging, social bookmarking, forums posting, etc... because directory submission is mainly used for getting one-way links for your site. It may also help increase your keyword rankings in serp through using your targeted keywords in the title of your link, but this effect may depend on the quality of the directory.

    I doubt you'll get traffic from directories. Do you know someone looking for any goods or services in directories? Most of my friends will google for what they need instead of using directories.

    DIR could help making backlinks. I tried it once in a while. It's better to have 1 than nothing.

    Yes It's true, Directory submissions can give lot of traffic to your website. Submitting your website to various directories makes it to appear on different search engines, due to which people easily picks them.

    Its fact that unless you are in sponsor listing you wont get any traffic from directories but this is also true that directory submission is best for getting backlinks that too if those directories are index by google. so better start from free directory submission and build some relevant directory backlinks. If you are looking to get traffic from that then it is merely a waste of time.

    you can not say that you will not get traffic from directories.
    get traffic but in less amount.
    social bookmarking is the way to get amount traffic.
