    Hello seo gurus,

    I have a web directory link4web.net. This is directory site where a user can submit his/her website link in free and we will publish that after review. I want to know how to make my directory more popular or valuable so i can get more traffic? How to submit or list my directory in the list of various directory sites like directory critic or web-direcotries.ws etc.... All suggestions are appreciable...

    The same way as you promote any other site, in my opinion is the same thing.

    Also it will surely help if you have an English version of the site, far wider audience.

    Very true. It is no different from any other. Create content, build links, and so on.

    It sounds like English is not your first language, since I do not understand your question. If you are broadly asking how to promote a website, there is no single, one sentence answer. Do Everything!

    Hi.
    There is nothing different. You can promote your directory site by having- Free Search engine, best free directory, email signature.

    Do some link building to get your page rank and traffic up. Also only accept decent sites to make it good in the eyes of visitors and the search engines.

    First you select some site who allow a big list of directory submission the you may ask to the site owner to include your site in their list by sending mails. Another way is start directory submission for you site. It will increase site popularity.

    Search free directories sites and submit your data to get quality backlinks. You can submit your data in social bookmarks websites to get more traffic.
