In the last post, I mentioned something about submitting articles to certain web sites in order to help you make your presence felt more on the Internet. In this post, I would like to focus on another type of submission â€“ directory submissions.
What is this all about? As the name implies, you submit your blog to a web site that acts much like a telephone directory, except that the contents of the site are blogs and not
people and their phone numbers.
How do these directories work? It is actually quite simple. Blog directories would have various categories. For example, they have business blogs, personal blogs, fashion blogs, food blogs, and so on. What you need to do as a business blogger would be to look under the business blog category and see if they have subcategories that would suit the nature of your business the best. Once youâ€™ve found this, you can send in a request for your blog to be featured.
Of course, blog directories have their own set of rules and regulations as to the submission process. You would want to check these first before submitting your blog. If you do not do this and you miss a specific requirement or step in the process, your blog might not be featured at all. Most blog directories would require you to include a short description of your blog so that this can be included in the feature.
In the next post, letâ€™s look at the benefits of directory submission and what to look for in a directory submission site.
