Directories and search engines afford good traffic and links. But which one of them is a better way to go for you? Search engines and directories can be important when you need traffic and links. But they are two different ways to accomplish your goals and they are different entities.

Directories are very numerous but Yahoo! is the most popular. Other very good directories include the Open Directory Project – dmoz.org. Search engines are less numerous and Google is by far the most popular with well over 80% of all searches. Here are some others – Yahoo!, AltaVista, and MSN. What are the differences in these two traffic building systems?

yahoodir.jpg

1) Search engines are used much more than directories by visitors. The reason is that search engines are easy to find and easy to use. You just search the words you want. With directories you have to locate them, peruse each subject area as well as the possibly many subdivisions of each subject area.

2) Search engines will give you free listings, but many directories will charge a fee for your submission. Search engines have no charges because they list your site however they wish based on their own judgment.

3) Search engines use robots while the directories use people to read your website. This is a major difference. The search engines are updated monthly by the robots (called crawlers and spiders). Robots are programs that locate a webpage and record data about your website to their database. Directories have a human reader visit your website to see if it will be included in the listings.

4) Directories place websites into categories based on your content. Search engines use an algorithm to organize and rank webpages for display. The question you might have is – which makes the best system for referral of traffic? It would be best of course if you get the most traffic you can from both search engines and directories. It takes time and work to make submissions to both directories and search engines. Here is my suggested approach: Submit your website to the big three search engines – Google, Yahoo! and MSN. Next, look for some highly ranked directories in your content areas. Focus on getting a few free directories to begin, hopefully ranked at 4-6. Jayde.com is one of the best and is easy to apply to. You can now add your website to a few more directories with free directory submissions.

WordPress is definitely one of the most popular bogging platforms around.  There are many reasons for this.  But there are four big reasons that WordPress could be considered the best blog system of all.  After we run through these reasons you may even agree with Uncle Arthur.

1)  Many Different WordPress Themes Available – There are literally thousands of different WordPress Themes to choose from.  this many choices gives your blog an individual and more exclusive look.  Some of these themes are free of charge.  The most exclusive and beautiful versions available can be bought for $40-65.  You can click here to see the best collection available – or on the example below.

16449-wp-b.jpg

2)  Designed for Search Engine Optimization – With the WordPress platform SEO is built into the design, already programmed for keywords etc.  But also it provides a function for making your blog article URLs more searchable.  An example of this would be if your blog URL was www.YourBlog.com, you can use URLs in this format, www.YourBlog.com/Article-Title-Here/  . You can see that this enables a search engine to list your URL in their index, so that when people search “Article Title” or “about the Title” they find your separate article URLs, then go directly to your article.  Better traffic, and this SEO feature can be activated with minimal effort – most people using WordPress don’t even activate this feature.

3) Very Easy to Use – Everything about the WordPress platform and themes are visitor-friendly and owner-friendly. WordPress’ control panel user interface is elegantly built for maximum efficiency and function. Even brand new bloggers find wordPress designing easy to use – many people seem to use it intuitively.

4) The very best options and Plug-ins – WordPress programmers and enthusiasts are everywhere.  hey are constantly designing and improving many add on features.  Many of these options are free.  Some of these plugins are nominally priced.  But the big thing here is that they allow flexibility, higher and more specialized functions, customizing possiblities to the max.  If you can’t try out or afford all the plugins don’t worry – just ask around the huge WordPress blog community for pointers and opinions.  Although many plugins do the same thing, some of them even do many things, all in one add on.  And WordPress is loaded with tutorials.

I like WordPress, no question – this blog is WordPress, but don’t just take Uncle Arthur’s Word – ask around.

SEO is a great way to make money, but how much is it really worth?  Some SEO service companies charge big bucks to get you fully SEOd.  But there are some companies out there that should not be hired because of their business practices.  How do you know which ones those are?  Well, here’s some ways to know if they are the WRONG company to do business with.

If a company claims your website is being held up in “search engine indexing”  this is a bad sign that they are trying to blame their own problems onto the search engine.  They should have mentioned time factors in search engine submissions and provided you with alternatives for the intial days of building traffic.

If a company guarantees to get your webpage a certain number of first page rankings within a certain time – this is a ploy that can be misunderstood by SEO clients, especially if they are new.  It’s easy to get some of your pages to appear on a major search engine’s first page if they use a paid ad or an obscure search keyword.  Does it generate traffic and sales?

If a company tells you that your website is the problem for the poor search results and sales then they are almost certain to offer an expensive and usually not needed website “search optimization” – trying to pad your contract.

If a company is also selling expensive “search engine submission services” then they are appealing to the uninformed customers who don’t realize that 95% of search goes through the big 3 Search Engines – Google, MSN, and Yahoo! Which takes 10 minutes to submit a website.

If a company recommends a complete rebuilding of a website for every customer – very bad sign. Few websites need this complete service – supposedly to make your website more “search-friendly.”  Most websites can improved with a few adjustments for relatively little expense – so price comparison is where it’s at.

Some SEO companies are doing a very fine job for a reasonable price. Companies who take the time to explain SEO to you and tell you the total cost are usually good companies.  But, buyer beware – shop around ask for a list of websites of customers that they have helped – maybe contact the owners of those webistes.

By now you can sense the new power of being a Super Blogger surging through you! This is because you are nearly complete. Today we take another step toward the full creation of a new Super Blogger – YOU!!!

16286-wp-b.jpg
WordPress Theme #16286 from templatemonster.com

Two very important lessons for the discerning disciple of the way of the Super Blogger is found in 1) Social Media and 2) Advertising (Monetizing). Today we will list the best resources for use on your quest. You can investigate the helpful information available in all these mentioned websites.

Social Media must be used to fully market your blog to the largest audience possible. Spend time networking and submit some interesting articles to let more readers find your blog. Digg – has stories that once submitted receive votes, possibly to the front page, Del.icio.us – for social bookmarks to add bookmarks to your list and categorize them, StumbleUpon – a channel surf the internet with the StumbleUpon toolbar, Reddit – a user-generated news links that promote stories to the front page, MyBlogLog – gives free site stats and a widget to find out who’s been visiting your site, LinkedIn – an online network of millions of experienced professional bloggers, Facebook – is one of the fastest growing social networking sites on the net, Myspace – a free social network with blogging capabilities for attracting friends, Squidoo – to set up your own sub-site and spread the word about your blog, Ning – to create your own social networks.

Monetization and Advertising is good for many reasons (besides supplementing your allowance). Google Adsense and Adwords – a contextual advertising solution through Pay-Per-Click, Adbrite – webmasters buy and sell text ads based on their site’s topic area, Yahoo Publishers Network – advertising with PPC, Text Link Ads – sell static HTML links on your blog sidebar and posts for monthly fees,  Kontera – an text advertising by Cost-Per-Click, Chitika – CPC Revenue for displaying related products, BlogAds – image and text ads per month fees, Amazon Associates – link to Amazon products for a
commission, Commission Junction – online advertising and internet marketing company with affiliate programs, ReviewMe – when you review products or websites you receive a flat-fee, Feedvertising – sell links in your RSS Feed for set price per month.

So is your imagination on overload yet? (Or are you brain dead?) Super Bloggers will conceive of the possiblities. Part 7 will be the upcoming and final episode of Uncle Arthur’s Super Bloggers! Nothing can last forever – at least in the third dimension. ( Part 1 or 7 )
