Add Url

For many people or businesses who have their own website the term “add url“ is probably a familiar term.

For the newcomer to the internet however, it is important to understand why this term may be one of the most important features of a website that you may come across on the web, in order to get your website in front of the people that you intend it for.

There are many directories on the internet where you can list a website in an effort to attract visitors to your site – some are better than others. One of the better websites to list your site is the Yahoo directory, but it is currently $300 to get your site listed, which I think you’ll agree is a lot of money to fork out. However if you are serious about promoting your site you can get more info here Yahoo! Small Business – 25% Off Web Hosting

So why are internet directories important for your website?

Some may argue that directories are not as important as they used to be and this maybe true to a point.

To appreciate why directories are still important to your website’s rankings, it is important to have some basic understanding of how search engines work. Imagine if you had to invent a search engine to trawl through the billions of websites out there and return results to the end user that are relevant and informative.

Search engines have what are called algorithms which determine how high a website appears in the search engine results for a particular term, or keywords as they are known.

If a website has a lot of links from other websites relating to the search term it should appear near the top of the search results.

Links can be referred to as anchor text. What is anchor text?

If a site X ranks highly for “property for rent” then anchor text from site Z may be “property for rent” and the anchor text would be something like property for rent – notice how the text has a hyperlink so that if anyone clicks on it, it is linked to site X. If site X has hundreds of links for “property for rent” then it is likely to rank highly when a user types in the search term “property for rent”

The way the search engines see anchor text is as endorsements of a website’s authority for that particular search term.

Of course, the search engines also look at other criteria as well as anchor text, but good links can help a site to rank very well.

So the next time you see the term “add url” on a website, use it is an opportunity to add your website and anchor text to help you build up some links to your site.
