    Directory Submission Description

    I am curious about something. I know directory submissions are good for speeding up indexing. I am having a little trouble writing the description for my submissions. Is there any benefits to using keywords in the descriptions for the directories? Meaning when the spiders crawl, would they match up the keywords with the link to the site?

    It's a random thought I had. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Description should be look like describing your website business or services it not looked with stuffing with keywords, you can use few keyword but in the format of a sentence.

    To be honest, from what I've read, the most import thing is just switching up the descriptions so they aren't all the same (no duplicate content).

    I only submit to very relevant and high-ranking, manual approval directories for my niches, since it should not be a waste of time given the big effort that it takes.

    To get your site indexed, there are many much easier ways via say a link from a forum sig, article, do-follow blog comment etc.

    I think this article will help you, it gives some interesting tips on how to submit to directories:
    How to Submit Your Website to Directories

    The things to remember are submitting to directories that have human editorial, don't look like advertising Christmas tree and a while in business. The descriptions should be unique (you have to write one for each directory) and be able to use your site name or keywords targeted.

    Quality general directories, niche directories, and article directories are always best backlinks to have.

    If your title, description, and category contain keywords, then your site might appear toward the top of directory queries. However, if your company name does NOT have keywords in them, do not add those keywords in the submission. Directory editors will remove them anyway, and you do not want them to suspect you for spamming.
