Zeezo is z z

I haven't seen any life at Zeezo.com in over a year. Submissions seem to drop into /dev/null. Around 2003 a single submission there would be multiplied over 100 times (once per country), giving you a lot of links from different subdomains. While that isn't necessarily a good thing, it was better than dropping into /dev/null.

Cipinet is a waste of time

Cipinet has very few entries in it and has not shown any of my submissions, so is therefore not worth the time and effort to submit.

Opting out of ODP in MSN descriptions

MSN Search's WebLog : Opting Out of Open Directory Listings for Webmasters: <meta name="ROBOTS" content="NOODP"> is the magic meta tag you can place in your index page to be freed of the ODP description if you don't like it. It is proprietary to MSN Search but it is not worth it, at least for me.

I dropped from #1 to #6 after adding the tag.

Free and paid directory submission listings

There might be others like this, but here is a great list of free and paid directories that lets you view the data from several angles. There are mini reviews of each entry.

Entireweb not displaying free submissions

Submissions made in May 2005 are still not showing, so it seems pointless to fill out a free submission to Entireweb. Of course, their paid service works fine on Entireweb itself, although its "partners" display such listings because they are metasearch engines and they would have picked up one's submissions elsewhere anyhow.

Tsection.com is a curious one. It seems to take some submissions but not most -- from the ones we submitted some months ago. Worth watching.


Another free submission site where February 2006 submissions have been ignored so far.


Sites submitted in February have been ignored. Probably a waste of time to submit.

Submit your web site for free to this directory! - says its link exchange page - I submitted on 1 April 2006 but no sign of acceptance as yet.

Are there any really, truly, unconditionally free submission directories that actually accept your submissions (in a reasonable timeframe)?

A necessary evil in the process of search engine optimisation is to submit one's site to directories. There are many out-of-date lists of free directories that are either not free anymore and/or don't accept any submissions. This blog will attempt to list my experiences with such directories.
