Web directories

Recently I read a book about SEO and wrote the article “各搜尋引擎的登錄網站” in Chinese. We need to know the behavior of a Web crawler is the outcome of a combination of policies:

  • a selection policy that states which pages to download,
  • a re-visit policy that states when to check for changes to the pages,
  • a politeness policy that states how to avoid overloading Web sites, and
  • a parallelization policy that states how to coordinate distributed Web crawlers.

The selection policy is important to the web crawlers because it decide how the web crawlers to search. Some crawlers start search from the popular web directories like DMOZ, Yahoo directory. So to submit our sites on web directories will get off to a good start.

Now I want to introduce  good sites to submit our sites:



On the Jasminedirectory.com you can first choose the category of your site and click it. Then click the Submit link.



I click the Standard Review button because it is free. And you need to fill out the form to the next. Please take notice to write in the 3rd person, for example avoid “we”, “our”, “my” and “your” in the description field. i feel it is strange but I obey the rules.

After some minutes You will receive a mail like this,”
