Submit Your Blogs to Directories

These submission links point to over 100 blog directories. To generate more interest and traffic, submit your blog(s) to these (some are high PR) directories.

I manually submitted to a couple PR6 directories but then I got bored with the submission process. I'll have to piecemeal it.

Blog Directory Link1
Blog Directory Link2
Blog Directory Link3

I understood that link directories can hurt your page rank.

Lord Matt,

Thank you for your comment.

Links that are hidden, cloaked doorway pages or redirected, from FFAs, linkfarms, and spam websites are definitely bad juju.

Predominantly, the directories I mentioned are not of the aforementioned. I'm only suggesting that when you are not generating any traffic, blog directories might be a decent place to start. As always, do your own due diligence because I'm no SEO or SEM expert. Personally, I checked out the ones with higher PRs...

I got Topbloglists.com (inception was Dec 06) up to a PR5, and this one and "My SysAd Blog" (was a PR4) up to a PR3. Those two latter blogs were started in Sept '06. Back then as a newbie (still am frankly speaking), I only used blog directories to generate traffic.

Adding to the last post...

The only thing I did different with "My SysAd Blog" between PR updates was increased my postings (maybe interpreted as SPAM), added several RSS feeds, added a couple UNIX related buttons, and removed Google Adsense.

Interestingly enough, my readership has increased by almost 15x and 3.5x since Nov '06 and Dec '06, respectively. Majority of the traffic for "My SysAd Blog" comes from Google searches. For the "web finds" blog, the majority of the traffic comes from MSN. From Sept '06 to December '06, the only thing I did was directory submissions. I didn't know anything else except that FFAs were ill-advised.

On a positive note, I've noticed via MBL that some of my "Technical Links" (Blogroll) have benefited from a decent number of hits (low double digits per day) from my blog. That’s where the Google Adsense was located!

The best part of this blogging experience, I'm learning so many new things and writing more :) I need the practice!

PeterH,

On your webpage, go to your browser's menu. Select View->Source

It appears to be the following:
RSS:
http://filmmaker101.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/
default?alt=rss
or
ATOM:
http://filmmaker101.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default

A cleaner way is to go to Feedburner.com and type in your URL. FeedBurner makes it easy to receive content updates in My Yahoo!, Newsgator, Bloglines, and other news readers.

I registered (free) with Feedburner.com and mapped my UNIX RSS feed to the following: http://feeds.feedburner.com/sysad

Your blog via http://www.Feedburner.com
Identify Feed Source
The feed URL you entered is:
http://filmmaker101.blogspot.com
FeedBurner discovered more than one feed at that address. Please select one to use as your source:
Filmmaking 101 - Atom: http://filmmaker101.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default

Filmmaking 101 - RSS: http://filmmaker101.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/
default?alt=rss

I guess this is a Next Step fer me*

One of my probs is categorizing my $B Blog*

It's kinda funny + but also has a ton of good visuals from Flickr but i don't think it belongs in Humour or Photography*

I think it's Entertaining but those site typically deal with Hollywood stars*

I'll take a boo & see which Directories U mention*

I was hoping to Sell U some $B Baloney but i'll leave that fer another day!!

;))

p.s. i get U confuzed w/ Emily Chang's eHub which is an awesome source fer Web2.0 info*

esofthub said...

billywarhol, thanks for the comment. I would submit to the free ones first. But the only thing about the free ones, it takes quite awhile before your blogs are accepted and there's certainly no guarantees of acceptance. The manual submission process is very time consuming. How are your community building efforts paying off?

I agree with you about eHub.com. It's a great resource and a great domain name. Actually, I bought the eSoftHub.com domain (3 yrs ago) because I was thinking about doing something like hers (before I saw hers of course)... I might still turn it into a "electronic Software Hub" :) Who knows.

INTERNATIONAL CONCEPT OF WORK FROM HOME
Work from home theory is fast gaining popularity because of the freedom and flexibility that comes with it. Since one is not bound by fixed working hours, they can schedule their work at the time when they feel most productive and convenient to them. Women & Men benefit a lot from this concept of work since they can balance their home and work perfectly. People mostly find that in this situation, their productivity is higher and stress levels lower. Those who like isolation and a tranquil work environment also tend to prefer this way of working. Today, with the kind of communication networks available, millions of people worldwide are considering this option.

Women & Men who want to be independent but cannot afford to leave their responsibilities at home aside will benefit a lot from this concept of work. It makes it easier to maintain a healthy balance between home and work. The family doesn't get neglected and you can get your work done too. You can thus effectively juggle home responsibilities with your career. Working from home is definitely a viable option but it also needs a lot of hard work and discipline.

Baby-sitting
This is the most common and highly preferred job that Women & Men like doing. Since in today's competitive world both the parents have to work they need a secure place to leave behind their children who will take care of them and parents can also relax without being worried all the time. In this job you don't require any degree or qualifications. You only have to know how to take care of children. Parents are happy to pay handsome salary and you can also earn a lot without putting too much of an effort.

Nursery
For those who have a garden or an open space at your disposal and are also interested in gardening can go for this method of earning money. If given proper time and efforts nursery business can flourish very well and you will earn handsomely. But just as all jobs establishing it will be a bit difficult but the end results are outstanding.

Freelance

Diet food
Since now a days Women & Men are more conscious of the food that they eat hence they prefer to have homemade low cal food and if you can start supplying low cal food to various offices then it will be a very good source of income and not too much of efforts. You can hire a few ladies who will help you out and this can be a good business.

Thus think over this concept and go ahead.
