Mass Directory Submission

    I have heard both sides. That it can hurt you and that it can help. I figure, the more directories my sites are on, the more likely someone will accidentally find them, regardless of Google ranking. I'm no SEO pro though. Maybe it isn't a good idea if you have an established site, but if you're getting no results, why not just submit to as many directories as you can. Worst case scenario, you are back where you started.

    First i don,t understand your concern. If you are talking about directory submission, more you submit your website on directories more will be the chances for approval and ultimately more back-links you will get. You might know how important are back-links

    the adverts for mass submission to directories you see are virtually useless in terms of SEO. Google will ignore most of the links. If it didn't then it would be really easy to build up backlinks thus artificially affecting the google results and making them worthless.

    You might want to try other methods away from directory submissions. For example, one good way to get quality backlinks to your website is by doing a little research in blog directories, and finding blogs that are relevant to your website. Take a quick look at its statistics -- page rank, and whether Google has a recent cached version of the blog (<3 months old). If these are both respectable, then you can contact the owner of that blog and ask whether or not s/he accepts guest posts. By writing a guest post for their blog, you will obtain a backlink to your website. The trouble with guest posts are that the articles actually need to be good articles, otherwise they won't be accepted, but they are a fantastic way to acquire backlinks for your website.

    Directory submission wouldn't hurt your site but backlinks should be coming from other sources as well. Further more directory sites are very slow in approving submission unless you go for their paid service.

    Please let me know why a mass directory submission is a spamming? People only get one backlink from each directory and an approval may need about two months. Does it hurt search engine?

    As I know, a successful rate use automatically submission lower than manual submission.

    i think you haven't understood the negative aspects of mass directory submissions. if your website link gets landed in link farms or bad neighborhoods, it will adversely affect your position in search engine results. if you want more users to find your website, then create discussions in social networking forums and discussion forums. the more visible you are in social networking forums, the more traffic your site will attract.

    the very first i didnt get your concern and what you actually wanna convey.BUt what i understood is you have been talking about the mass submissions then yea you may submit your website to as many as directorise you can .In that case more chances of approval - live website on directories and more chances that google may add it as backlinks.

    It certainly won't hurt but make sure you diversify your backlinking profile with other types of links from a range of sources as this will help your site appear natural in Google's eyes.
