Google Approves of Directory Submissions

If you are running a quality directory, google approves of people submitting to you! Today on the google, there was a paragraph directory submissions, and here is the exact quote:

Directory entries are often mentioned as another way to promote young sites in the Google index. There are great, topical directories that add value to the Internet. But there are not many of them in proportion to those of lower quality. If you decide to submit your site to a directory, make sure it's on topic, moderated, and well structured. Mass submissions, which are sometimes offered as a quick work-around SEO method, are mostly useless and not likely to serve your purposes. [link]

As we have been stressing, creating a quality directory has its benefits, while just making a copycat site that serves no purpose to users is waste of your time, and to the time of your submitters and users.  Here are a few baseline guidelines. 

-- Moderate the anchor text of titles

-- Moderate the description and even rewrite them after review of the site

-- Add quality links to the site, and don't just depend on submitters

-- Carefully place links in the correct categories, and don't let submitters put everything in the top categories

-- When people submit payment for "review" of their site, that does not been you should not reject some listing.

-- A quality directory does periodic checks and deletes parked pages, malware containing pages and other non-relevant links

There is a discussion on Webmaster World about this too. [link]
