How To Use Submit Edge To Increase Your Ranking; If you have your own site, I’m sure you have thought a little about SEO. SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization and there are several components, but generally, they break down into On Site and Off Site SEO.
On Site SEO is simply structuring the content on your site so that it’s search engine friendly. Think of it like owning a physical store where you do business – you want that store to stand out, otherwise no one will ever visit you. So On Site SEO is about making sure your using the appropriate meta key words and title tags and h1 tags and key word density in your relative content, etc., so that your site gets indexed. But that’s only 20% of the game.
The other 80% is Off Site SEO. We’ve talked about a few of these methods before. They include;
- Article Marketing
- Social Bookmarking
- Directory Submission
- Search Engine Submission
- Google Indexing
- DMOZ Listing
- Forum Link Building
- Blog Commenting
- Press Release Distribution
- Squidoo Lens Creation
- Niche One Way Links
That’s a mouthful, but what we’ll discuss here today is Directory Submission.
First, let me address budget. When I advise clients, budget is usually the first question. Sure, if everyone had unlimited funds, this gets a lot easier. But that’s not the point of this. I want to get you into this business the most efficient way possible, meaning by spending as little money as possible.
Accordingly, Submit Edge has a $15 option that submits your site to 100 directories. That’s a great place to start. That will give you 100 QUALITY one-way links to your site – resulting in higher rankings and more traffic.
Ok, I hear what you’re saying. You can manually submit to most if not all of these directories yourself. And the answer is yes, you sure can. But 1) to do 100 directories would take a significant amount of time (just try doing one. And 2) you have to follow up with each of these submissions.
Here’s what they do for you.
- Submit your site to relative directories, with HIGH PR Rankings, based on pedigree and reliability.
- Follow all submission guidelines, with 125 employees. Note, if you don’t follow the right rules when submitting, your site will not get submitted. They take care of all of that for you.
- They maintain their list of directories, so that it’s up to date.
- You get a full report of where your site was submitted.
Trust me. It will be the smartest $15 you ever spent and it’s a one time purchase.
Now if you have a larger budget, then you should explore some of their larger packages. You will save money by stepping it up a few notches – depending on the keyword competition in your Niche.
These guys will also do all of the above services for you. If you have the budget. My thoughts on this are not to get in over your head. Start small, make sure your site can generate some revenue and then ramp up. These services won’t make your site sell better, they’ll just help you get traffic to your site. From there, you need to analyze that traffic, test certain sales pages, and make sure you’re fully monetizing the traffic that comes to your site.
More on that later… Again, give these guys a try. $15 is nothing for the time it will save you and the added benefit.
