Blog directories are they worth it

Blog directories are they worth it

Several weeks ago I spent a good few hours finding blog directories with decent traffic to submit my blog to. Now it is time to see what sort of results there has been in terms of traffic from these directories.

I have submitted and to a handful of blog dig directories. These are directories that list the blogs themselves rather than their RSS feeds. The aim of the exercise is to see if this generates any traffic back to these sites.

The source of referrals that have been used to track the results are from log analysers looking at my raw logs and a third party page tracking service. This should give a more balanced view of actual traffic. The reason for this is that different software seems to report different results, these difference in these result can sometimes be quite startling.

Now for the results. So far only two directories have contributed any traffic back to my site. In both cases I think the traffic was generated from the new listings areas of the directories. The numbers of referrals are few, I do not expect much more traffic to be generated in the future as my sites are no longer listed in the new listings section.

Most of the directories do not do direct links and instead use redirectsFind Article, this is usually because link tracking is in place. Unusually LSblogs links directly to the sites it lists which I believe will count towards your back links unlike redirects.

Besides LSblogs that I have just mentioned the other directory that generated some traffic was Blogarama.

Unfortunately you do not know which directories are going to generate traffic until you have been listed. You can increase your chances of ensuring traffic by submitting to directories that already have a lot of traffic. I would suggest that as it takes little time and effort to submit your site to blog directories and as they are few and far between compared to generic directories it is a worthwhile exercise.

The experiment is far from over as I still have many blog directories to submit to and I will be looking at the long term traffic from these sites. There will be an update to come which will include a list of all of the blog directories.
