How to re-submit your web site to Internet
Have you followed our directory submission tips in the last
weeks? Then its very likely that any directory will
accept your web site submission the first time.
In short, make sure you have a professional looking web site
with unique content that is accessible in all popular browsers
and that has been proof-read by others. In addition, you should
follow the directory guidelines very carefully.
If your web site doesn't get listed within 3-4 weeks, just
re-submit it. Keep submitting your web site to the directory
every 3-4 weeks until you get in or get formally rejected.
The main reason your web site gets rejected are time constraints.
Editors of popular directories receive hundreds of submissions
every day and have a backlog of sites to look at. The directory
editor probably didn't have the time to visit your site.
If your web site has not been listed after 4 weeks, send
a cordial email message to the directory editor. Try to get
the right contact person for your category. Some directories
such as the Open Directory Project (dmoz.org) publish the
person in charge at the bottom of the category page. Click
on the name to find out his or her email address.
Tell the editor that you have waited several weeks and that
you have already submitted your web site several times. Ask
politely about the status of your submission and whether theres
a problem you need to correct. Be sure to include your web
site URL, the category name and the submission dates.
Even if the editor doesnt reply immediately, your site
might get the attention it deserves and it might get listed
If you have submitted your site to the popular Open Directory
Project, you can ask about your sites status at the
forum of the DMOZ editors.
