Tips for getting approved and listed within or blog directory
Blogging Fusion Editors' have come up with a summary of what can help you get your blog approved and listed quickly within the blog directory. Please use the below information as a guideline and if you have any questions don't hesitate to contact us.
Information required to submit to Blogging Fusion:
When submitting a link to our blog directory you will need to provide the following information about your blog:
• Keywords that describe your blogs content
• Your Name
• Valid email address (So editors can contact you for corrections)
One thing we recommend that you do before submitting your blog is to prepare this information in advance and to consider your description and what keywords you're going to include with your blog submission.
For better results try and use keyword-phrases that describe your blog into the Title text and Description text you submit, especially into the Title text (this is known as anchor text and will give you added optimization for the search engines).
When we ask you to provide keywords that best describes your blog our blog directory then caches these keyword-phrases and includes them in our search function. Then when a user performs a search within the blog directory your blog will be one of the included in the results. So for example if you submit the keyword 'blog tutorials,' you have a better of chance of being listed in the blog directories search results when a user searches within the blog directory using those keyword 'blog tutorial'.
It's the same algorithm the major search engines (Google, Yahoo and MSN) use for their indexed pages.
Tips when submitting to our blog directory
1. Be sure to submit your link to the most appropriate blog category.
This point is the most important on getting a speedy approval and can't be stressed enough, as its only common sense and not only makes the directory editor's job a little easier therefore speeding up your submission and approval for inclusion.
2. Patients is a virtue.
One point to remember about any directory that provides a free listing, is be patient. If you are not paying to be in the blog directory then your blog listing has a lower priority than paid listings. It can take several days to get approved and we understand it can be frustrating. The best thing to do when you submit is to wait up to 2 weeks, if you haven't heard from a Blogging Fusion Editor by this time period then use our contact form and request an evaluation.
3. Keep a log of when you submitted your blog.
One of the most useful things to do upon submitting to our blog directory is to write the name of the category you choose and the date of submission into a log of some sort (notepad is perfect for this). This prevents you from submitting your blog again and gives you a time frame as to when you submitted and what category you selected. It is very possible that your blog was already approved but your email spam filter deleted the approval and welcome email sent. When your blog gets listed in our blog directory it's always best to ask your friends to rate it or leave a review on your blog. This will help your blog listings and generate more exposure for your blog!
