    Be sure first that these are directories and not FFA sites. I have seen some of these submission services describing there sites as directories but after taking a closer look it seemed to be promoting FFA's

    2/18/06 Begin Test of DPTIPS.com


    Well its time for another DIR submission test. This time I will be following up on the site visitors as well as keyword ranking "digital photography tips" (DPtips is suppossed to be short for that). The new site was launched a month ago and averages 40-60 users a day. It will be hard to really see an increase (or not if the visitor increase is significant) but I thought I would throw it out anyways. The site will be submitted to 110 Directories by Alfredo, who expects to have it done by 3/5/06.

    Based on the past couple Directory submission test, it is apparent that it is beneficial. I just want to now use this as an ongoing "journal" recording the impact of these directory submission services.

    Here are two screenshots of the awstats and mcdar keyword tool for "Digital Photography Tips"

    Awstats: Avg ~40-50 visitors
    http://www.indexofimages.com/uploads/e3d0627960.jpg

    Mcdar tool: currently #281 on google

    Great test! Have been following this thread since you start posted the first test and can't wait to see the result of the 3rd test. Your first two tests already look legit enough though. :)

    I have no scientific proof but i guess submitting to directories results in diminishing returns after a certain amount of directory submissions.

    this is very interesting, you guys were talking about how old the domain is, do you mean how long you have had it, or how long you have registered it for?

    Also, nice work mudanoman, appreciate you sharing this info!

    This thread is kinda old but interesting. Let me update google result for you :D
    DPtips.com can not be compared since there was no any rank report found.

    On the assumption of the link building method was only directory submission cited, "my" conclusion would be it DOES help...

    His website gets PR2. Not bad, but, in the same time, not so good. It seams that there are other things that counts besides directory submissions. Or the traffic is the only that counts for him. I know websites with a lot of traffic but with a small PR.

    This threads tells us that directory submissions are still not over. I will try this out on one of my website!

    And lets see if I can get some positive results!

    After four years, I'd be shocked if he WASN'T at the top of Google now.
