Why submit your blog to a directory
There are three good reasons:
- To increase traffic to your blog/website.
- To help raise your all-important page ranking, which makes it easier for people to find you.
- To generate links, which also helps your page ranking.
At last count there were about 2.3 bazillion directories on the web: general directories, industry directories, niche directories and yes, directories of directories.
Some require payment, but most are free.
