With all the tempting examples of silly things we see on the Internet, not to mention pure stupidity, it is sometimes easy to overlook those who do things right. Such an example is Bloggeries Blog Directory . This is a mid-priced paid directory specifically for blogs.
First, they give you a link in the category listings, as 99% of directories do.
Then, they give you a details page, which maybe about 2% of directories do. This is nice, because it is a page that is totally optimized for your website. If the page has any link juice at all, it is a good page to have a link from. This blog is listed here: David Leonhardt’s SEO Marketing Express.
Third, they offer deep links. Now you have surely heard me expound upon the benefits of deep linking. Directories I am involved with, such as WV Travel and DevDream, not only feature listings on multiple pages, but also include the option of up to three deep links for each listing. Well, Bloggeries have outdone me on this. Look at our listing again, and you will see they offer three deep links, and they also include links to our most recent posts across the middle of the page, thanks to the magic of RSS.
On top of that, they have a forum that is quite busy and one incentive to participate is that they provide backlinks in your signature line plus a link to the post you wrote (which is a great enticement for people to visit your blog, so write provocative titles!)
This really was not intended to be a review of Bloggeries, as much as another chance to talk about deep links. But I suppose plans change.Written by David Leonhardt
