  • In order to keep Jasmine Directory as useful, friendly and safe as possible, we need to play safe.
Website suggestion related FAQ and guidelines:
  • Why is Jasmine Directory different?

    The main purpose of Jasmine Directory is to create a user-friendly environment for those who seek information. We believe this should be the primary motivation for any website directory.

    Contrary to the general belief, a web directory should not be just another website from where a website owner can get a backlink. Such directories violate Google’s Guidelines.

  • What websites do we add to Jasmine Directory?

    Our editors are adding on a daily basis new listings to our database. Furthermore, other webmasters are allowed to suggest a resource to be added to Jasmine Directory and, if our editors consider it useful for others, they’ll accept that resource.

    There is a huge difference between “suggesting” a website to a website directory (because a suggestion is subject to approval or rejection) and “a guaranteed listing”.

  • Why can't I suggest websites for free?

    The Internet is huge; there are billions of websites, hundreds of thousands of online businesses. People are mindful about SEO, they read everywhere they need backlinks, they see PageRank as a divine blessing they must have and so forth.

    Basically, a free web directory is spammed with suggestions. DMOZ for example has over 90.000 editors and the review process still may take years.

    Like it or not, no one can spend day after day sorting out websites, visit each and every one of them and browse them for free.

    So, collecting a modest review fee ensures the quality of our services (hosting environment, paying our editors, adding new content and tools etc.) and on the other hand limits the number of suggestions and indirectly reduces web spam.

  • What sites are added to Jasmine Directory?

    Our primary focus is oriented towards to provide an excellent user experience. Therefore we carefully review each website we include in Jasmine Directory.

    Before hitting the "Accept" button, we visit that website and think whether or not that resource (product or service) is unique, up-to-date for our users.

  • What sites do we usually reject?

    Well, it is difficult to name the exact websites we reject. However, we don't accept pharmacy websites (because most of them run illegally), affiliate-only based websites (they don't offer anything unique), redirected websites, websites that sell stolen software, websites which legitimacy is foggy, etc.

  • How should I suggest my website?

    You need to identify the subcategory that best describes your website and make use of the "Submit" top menu link.

  • Can I use whatever website title I want?

    No. We are all fed up with directories listing 20 "Best SEO Company" Guaranteed Results | Click here!!!" in a SEO related category. That is called spam.

    Instead, use the official name of your website.

  • Okay, what about the description?

    A website’s description should not be promotional and shouldn’t urge the user to click or buy or call. Also try not to use superlatives like “best”, “leading”. We want impartiality and objectivity so the user can solely decide where to click.

    Describe what your website has to offer, what a user can find on your website, specify if you serve only a specific region and so forth.

  • Why have you edited my listing?

    Making Jasmine Directory a useful resource requires us to exercise a high level of editorial discretion. So, in some cases we may modify the content of the title and description of the suggested website and/or move it to a more appropriate category.

  • What's your refund policy?

    We do not offer refunds if the submitter is not pleased with the newly assigned category or the modified title and/or description.

    We do not offer refunds after a listing was reviewed, accepted and included in Jasmine Directory.

    Submitters should understand that the review fee it is literary just a review fee and not some kind of guarantee or promise.

    However, to keep things calm, we refund the review fee if your website will be rejected (we really don't have time for disputes, legal aspects for $19).

  • Do you remove broken links, parked or dropped domains, suspicious redirects?

    Every 2-3 months we run an entire audit of all our external resources. We don't want to offer our users a bad user experience, so every resource that isn't back online in a resonable time frame will be deleted from Jasmine Directory's database
