Why submit your blog to a directory
There are three good reasons. First, you can increase traffic to your blog/website. Second, it helps raise your all-important page ranking, which makes it easier for people to find you. And third, it generates 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.
