If you were given $100, all in $1 bills, would you leave $80 or more on the table? That same question was asked in a follow-up E-mail we sent last week to a small business owner that wanted an opinion of his directory submission information. Many directories have minimum and maximum character limits, but very few people test the maximum character limit? Why is this?
 
People have been taught over the years that having a link pointing to their website is what matters most. Especially for directories, this line of thinking is absolutely false. When suggesting content for inclusion in a web directory listing, it is important to be accurate and supply enough information to build interest/credibility. The goal is to convert those viewing your directory listings into actual website visitors and customers. This is really hard to accomplish with one hundred characters or less. If you want web directory listings of value, and are more likely to be approved by an editor, please read on.
 
Thin content is quite abundant on the internet today. Search engines typically demote weak content while other webmasters will not link to it. It stands to reason that providing more information to an editor, to be reviewed for possible inclusion in a web directory, will offer greater benefit if it is approved. Especially with free directories, which tend to lack the editorial resources to edit each submission they receive, those submitting quality information are more likely to get their submissions approved.
 
If a directory offers a maximum character limit to describe your website, don’t be afraid to test those limits! For example, a business that sells products online can describe the type of products that they offer, how long the business has been operating, the number of employees that work at the company, why consumers are safe shopping there and much more. Does the business offer support or have a retail outlet? If so, include the company’s physical address and telephone number so people can contact the company with additional questions. There’s a lot of information that ordinary people want to see and directories are not limited to the one hundred and sixty character limit of a meta description tag. In fact, most directories allow over three times the limit of characters as are used in a meta description tag.
 
Especially for those that are concerned about the SEO benefits of their web directory listings, including more detailed data in the description is important. It’s the combined value of details that separates thin content from content that is valuable to both people and search engines. Since all search engines want to return pages to their visitors of value, your listings will carry far more weight and credibility with everyone.

We just updated our list announcement guidelines regarding free registrars/hosts and most importantly networks. Many people do not know that most of the "high PR" social bookmark networks are forging pagerank on deindexed domains. I don't know about everyone else, but rumor has it nobody wants to waste their time publishing stories deindexed social bookmarking sites. This is why we regularly check our lists - to remove the rubbish.

We are going to start banning entire networks because of this, including what few indexed domains they may have. There is absolutely no excuse to be deceiving other people and especially our visitors. Our list guidelines can be found at http://www.vmoptions.com/articles/article-17.html

As many people know, Google has been sending out a number of unnatural link notices, which often contain up to three sample unnatural links. DMOZ.org has been referenced along with a couple other cases where people are screaming foul. In the case of the DMOZ.org listing that was reported as unnatural, John Mueller of Google joined the conversation at https://plus.google.com/111696587332859976219/posts/G8f9VZcZu5g (August 20, 2013) and noted that it was a “mistake.” John Mueller also noted that other unnatural links likely exist and the webmaster should first look into those before submitting a reconsideration request.

The other two cases involve references to an allegedly natural link include the following:

Someone who wrote a tutorial about an app and linked to the app author’s website, as can be viewed at http://www.webmasterworld.com/google/4609765.htm (September 14, 2013).

Someone who wrote about recycling furniture and how it can help reduce deforestation at https://productforums.google.com/forum/?hl=en#!topic/webmasters/FseaRU0C-90 (August 28, 2013) happened to link to a furniture company’s website that was donating money to an animal charity.

The sample links that Google displays in unnatural link warnings may not be unnatural at all, as was confirmed by John Mueller of Google. This added confusion leads many to believe that every sample link Google provides in such notices are from specific industries or platforms that are frowned upon by Google, whether it be from a blog, directory, forum or anything else for that matter.

All too often many web directory owners and editors are eager to review and edit new submissions. During slow periods, some add their own listings, others do some house cleaning or simply relax. When time permits, it’s always a good idea for directory owners to perform some maintenance.
 
At VMOptions, we typically perform a thorough cleaning at least twice a year. This maintenance is needed as directories which contain listings pointing to dead URLs, parked domains or malware infected websites can impact the user experience.
 
We recently performed some maintenance tasks on our web directory and a total of 506 listings were either modified or removed. This cleaning impacted nearly 9% of the active entries within our directory. What we found were a handful of parked domains, a few listings that pointed to dead websites, some fatal server errors and many listings which were redirecting users to different URLs. Some of these redirects were abuse related and the offending domains have been removed and barred from being listed in our web directory in the future.
 
Those that follow us may have wondered why the number of active listings has declined and maintenance is the reason why. We will continue performing visual reviews on our active listings to ensure those who visit VMOptions will be presented with quality and accurate information. Additionally, we do not want the remaining listings within our web directory to be devalued by erroneous listings or other factors that would otherwise diminish the level of quality we are trying to achieve.

Welcome to the VMOptions Web Directory home on Google+. Here you can learn more about our directory, the people behind the scenes doing the editing and much more. It's our hope that your first visit here will be one of many more in the future.
