Promoting Websites using Directories:

Goal: Generate more hits to a Website by submitting Websites to Directories.


Define Directory Information

The name of the company or Website. This should be the standard business name.
A 25-30 word description without hyperbole or sales. Consider the elevator speech, the organization tag line. Do not repeat the title. It is important to get this right, because it is not easy to change.
Some few directories allow keywords.  Create a short list of important words with no repetition.
