Free Web Directory for Your Blog

This is my second post about page rank, and traffic. My first article was about Google Page Rank and what it means in simple terms. Wikipedia has a very good description on Page Rank if you are interested in the history of the word.

Having a blog is fun, but it isn't so much fun if you don’t get traffic to your site. Behind the scenes of owning a blog there are tremendous work. Not only posting articles on a regular basis is a necessity, but how to promote and understand the technicalities is another must. Driving traffic to your site is one of the most challenging tasks for a blogger.

I don’t sell a product on my blog, not yet. My blog is about sharing my knowledge and opinions with the world, so it is quite difficult in many ways to promote, because there are thousands of blogs out there with the same idea. I believe it is a little easier to promote your blog if you are selling a product. There are web directories such as Blog Catalog, BlogTopSite that would list your site FREE of charge with simple steps. Directories are important to your blog's success.

I have read many articles from pro bloggers, who are in the top 10,000 ranks, on how to tips to promote your blog on different blog directories. The list is long, and there are only a few important blog directories that are relative to your blog category. You will need to do some digging to find the relevant ones for yourself. I am still learning what works for my blog. If you have had a good experience or know of a quality directory please comment below. I would love to hear about your experiences. Thanks for reading my article.


  1. This is a great post! I have to agree with web directories since it is another way to promote your blog.

  2. You are forever offering wonderful information, like Icy! I love it. Now just to find the time to follow up. :-)

  3. You are so spot on about the traffic.. I had a hard time figuring how to drive traffic to my blog.. I just joined Blog Catalog and am still waiting for their approval.. I really hope to attract more readers since I am working my way to get my writing recognize..
    Oh yes, Thanks for the invitation. Yeah, I have followed and am checking it out. But, honestly, I am still kind of lost along the way.. I am trying to figure it out though.. Thank you so much and yeah, I love to express myself with words (as in writing). I am kind of mute in reality.. Haha..
    And, no, not yet, I haven't put them in a book but planning too.. I wished to be a published author one day but well, I have yet found the right or rather a suitable avenue. I don't even know how to get things started except the continuous writing.
    Alright, Good night for now.. and sleep tight.. *hug*

  4. @Icy BCThere seemed to be a growing number of directories everyday. It is almost mind bogling to know which is best.

  5. @Judy Sheldon-WalkerTime is what we don't have to be chasing for the best. Wish there is an unbiased top five list. Smiles

  6. @Krislin Neo, Ting (Syracuse Pike)There are so much information and you just need to make time to find what will work best for you. In time you will get there.

  7. Just browsing here trying to make heads or tales out of all this information. I never claimed to be smart, but I sure wish they would write a book about "Blogging for Dummies"! :( I really try, but sometimes I feel like I'm stuck in a mud-hole.
