by Ray S. Business Consultant

Those days are gone when people used to find information in paper directories. In past businessmen used to advertise their business in various modes such as newspapers, radio or television etc. Nowadays internet is new tool to advertise your business. In internet directories vast amount of information can be found as compared to previous modes. It is also cheaper than earlier modes.

 The cost of production of paper printed directories is much higher. Moreover it is usually published once in a year. So the information cannot be updated unless a new edition is published. Similarly advertisements in radio and television are also costlier. Users may or may not be available during the time of advertisements. So businessmen find internet as efficient method to give advertisements. Many new sites are coming up every day. So there is tough competition in internet world also. Every businessman wants his site to appear on top of search results. To achieve this purpose internet directories are used.

Internet directory also known as web directory is a website which contains other websites in it. Many users use search engines to find any data. But web directories are better than search engines. In search engines users need to type in a keyword and then plenty of sites appear which may or may not contain the information the user requires. In web directories the data is organized into categories and sub categories. Users just have to click on the heading which takes them to the site they require.

It is easier to update any information in web directories. By submitting your site in web directories you get a back link to your site. You should submit your site to as many web directories as you can. Some internet directories are free to submit to while some are paid. In free web directories you can submit your site for free. But its remedy is that it takes some time for your site to be displayed in the web directory. It can take upto six months. It is beneficial for those businessmen who do not want to spend any amount in advertising their business. Paid internet directories are those which require some amount to be paid by you for your to be listed in web directory. Submission in paid directories is faster than free directories. It takes a day or a week for your site to be shown in internet directory. Some directories display information about only a particular type of category. They are known as niche directories. It is easier to find information in these directories.

Web directories are manual edited. There is a proper procedure of submitting your site in web directories. You should submit your site in correct category otherwise manual editors may reject your site. Each and every web directory has its own rules and guidelines for you to follow. A web directory requires your name, e mail, URL, description and title of your website .You should use capital letters wherever required in description and title of your website.
