Submitting your site to a human-edited web-directory is but the first step to getting it listed. The editors of the directory at their discretion may choose to accept or reject your submitted site. To increase the likelihood of your site being accepted and consequently, listed on such a directory, the following tips might be helpful: - Each web directory has submission guidelines. Read them carefully before submitting your site because failure to comply with the guidelines would get you an instant rejection. - No matter how long the approval process seems to take NEVER submit your site to the same directory more than once. - Web directories make it easier for people searching for specific kind of sites to find them. When submitting your site ensure you choose the best directory category. If you list your site in the wrong directory category, don't expect the editors to move it. They're overwhelmed with submissions and don't have time for that. - You could also volunteer as an editor. It would be a sneaky way of approving your sites fast but if the strategy works, why not use it?
