Everyone knows that Google is one, if not the most popular Search Engine used by those online today, so what is Google PR and how is a Website Directory going to help your website? We know the basics that you have a website which is hosted with your web host provider, you have a great design on the site from the web designer than you hired and you have astonishing content from the professional writers who you have hired, but how is that going to help you become popular online without the proper marketing techniques used?
You can have amazing content but if your site is not listed on a website directory for others to find you, then you are missing another tactic of how to get you those visitors who want to find sites just like your own. A website directory (also known as a link directory) is a database allowing visitors to find their results based solely on categories and sub-categories rather than keywords as a search engine would do. Two ways is better than one, right?
Now if we think back to Google being one of the largest search engines used worldwide today, we are going to want to take the new found information of directories and submit our websites to those which are the best in their field. The last thing you want is to submit to a web directory that has little to no audience. How would that help get visitors to your website? What you are looking for are directories that everyone uses, the popular and proper ones. Best of the best!
Page ranks are Google’s way of finding sites and evaluating them to make sure that what you are searching for is actually found. It’s the way the search engine is able to scan millions of websites to make sure you, the searcher will get exactly what you need when you need it. If you have a great new web directory that you found and the PR is low, more than likely you will want to skip that one since they are on the low end of the PR scale. You are going to need sites that have large Page Ranks that really know what they are doing, and can do it well so that you can benefit from using their services.
Directories come in all shapes and sizes, but more importantly they all come with a variety of PR levels. You are going to want to seek out those which allow high amounts of traffic to their website in order for more possible viewers to reach your site. Many directory sites allow free submissions while others charge, some allow links back to your site and others do not, and even others allow for you to bid a position on their directory site.
Many are similar but it comes down to common sense and using it. You want your site to reach as many viewers as possible, promoting your own site in the end. If you are going with a web directory that has a low PR, you are not going to see nearly as many visits to your own website as you would with a directory that has a large PR. In turn more visitors to pass along to you, and isn’t that what you want?
