Directory listings/CCKs with PayPlans

Directory Listings….. Have you ever come across this term? Have you ever wondered about it’s benefits? Do you know that hosting a genuine directory listing can be a great revenue source for you? If the answer to all the above questions are NO then please go on, read this blog and benefit yourself with our understandings.

What is a Directory Listing?

Directory listing or getting registered on an online Web Directory is not the same thing as getting listed in the search engines.

The key divergence within the search engine and a web directory is that a search engine spiders the Internet to look for new available web pages and then indexes those links according to the relevance it attaches to those links. Whereas in a web directory, you can submit your links manually under a suitable category. Then those links are re-examined by human editors and accepted or rejected according to what they think of your link.

The most easy example for a directory listing is the Joomla Extension Directory (JED) itself. It works on the principles stated above. JED allow you to list all the Open Source products for Joomla.

Benefits of Directory listings.

Web directories hire/ take assistance from trained and experienced reviewers who evaluate the submitted links genuinely and then publish them on their online yellow pages.

  • Search engines voraciously consume the information from these web directories as the links over there are already formalized. On any given day, human-reviewed links are far more trustable than the software-reviewed links.

  • A healthy Page Ranked Web directory always attract huge traffic. So, you get direct traffic from the listings on the Web Directory. It can jump start a fresh business.
