Comparison between web and printed business directories

A business web directory is a directory much like a printed directory. However, instead of being in a form of printed media, its information is contained electronically on the World Wide Web.

A business web directory is an electronic media used to link several websites together under a common category. Subsequently, the business web directory divides the broader categorical links into narrower subcategories. For example, a person looking for a dog groomer would begin their search in the business web directory looking for a pet category. Once the pet category is found, the person would then look for a groomer sub division. Once inside the pet groomer subcategory, the person would look for dog groomers. While looking for a particular link, the person will have the opportunity to select, desired region, language or any other special requirements. A business web directory will specialize in the type of business it is promoting.

Advertising your business via web directories

I have to say that over the last several years it seems harder and harder for a website to get any notice unless you are willing to spend truckloads of money on a professional PR campaign. That was until I started doing some research on topics dealing with page ranking with search engines and other services that help improve your chances of getting noticed.

One type of service I found and use quite frequently now are web directories. While doing my research I found that advertising your business via web directories can have a huge impact on your page ranking as well as just generally getting the word out.

Part of the page ranking formula is how many other sites link or have links to your website. By advertising your business via web directories you are affording yourself those links all on your own. No more waiting for someone to notice you and link to you. Do it yourself. I couldn’t believe how quickly this helps.

I owe a company of cosmetic products that due to the financial crisis came very close to bankruptcy. I have to admit, i`ve never thought that blog advertising could help me in any way, and I was really suprised to see that the sales have significantly increased thanks to blog advertising!Since this company is still at the beginning, I didn`t have neither the time nor the money to expand it and open more shops all around the world, this is why most people are unaware of the existance of our products. We offer a large variety of high quality skin care and hair care products and this is why advertising is highly important when it comes to promoting and launching new products, keeping in mind the market competition.

There are lots of free web directories that can turn out to be very useful

A web directory is found on the World Wide Web and it aims to connect other web sites as well as separate those particular links and hyperlinks, categorizing them basing on certain criteria. A web directory is not a search engine, but it has the ability to show web sites by categories and subcategories. So, when sites will be sorted out, this process is usually based on the whole website rather than one page or keywords, so the categorization options are fewer.

The web directories allow webmasters to add their sites that will be afterwords sorted into certain categories where they belong, as mentioned above. Most web directories consist in some categories, language but also regions. There is a similarity between RSS directories and web directories, the only difference being that the web directories contain a collection of links to web sites, instead of feeds.

A webring (web-ring) reffers to a circular structure of websites

A webring (web-ring) reffers to a circular structure of websites that are connected together similar to a ring, just like the name suggests. It is considered a form of SEO, and it is very useful for web advertising. It first started in 1994 as EUROP and now it is a structure that can increase your number of visitors.

Every website can have a navigation bar that allows the surfer to pass from one blog to another, for instance, after which they will return to the site they left from. This is the ring effect, coming to the starting point.

By using webrings, site owners choose to do so because they want to promote certain types of information or services. Initially if one site owner from the webring went offline, the webring breaks, but nowadays webmasters got the chance to improve the updates for webrings so they are not dependent of offline sites anymore.
