Internet Directories: Re-Submit And Get Accepted
Directory Listings May Require Multiple Submissions
Originally Published: December 2, 2003
Have you followed our directory submission tips [Internet Directories: How To Get Listed] in the last weeks? Then its very likely that any directory will accept your web site submission the first time.
In short, make sure you have a professional looking web site with unique content that is accessible in all popular browsers and that has been proof-read by others. In addition, you should follow the directory guidelines very carefully.
Re-Submit Until You Are Formally Rejected
If your web site doesn't get listed within 3-4 weeks, just re-submit it. Keep submitting your web site to the directory every 3-4 weeks until you get in or get formally rejected.
The main reason your web site gets rejected are time constraints. Editors of popular directories receive hundreds of submissions every day and have a backlog of sites to look at. The directory editor probably didn't have the time to visit your site.
If your web site has not been listed after 4 weeks, send a cordial email message to the directory editor. Try to get the right contact person for your category. Some directories such as the Open Directory Project (dmoz.org) publish the person in charge at the bottom of the category page. Click on the name to find out his or her email address.
Tell the editor that you have waited several weeks and that you have already submitted your web site several times. Ask politely about the status of your submission and whether theres a problem you need to correct. Be sure to include your web site URL, the category name and the submission dates.
Even if the editor doesnt reply immediately, your site might get the attention it deserves and it might get listed quicker.
