Quality Hosting, Broken Links & Free Directory Submission

Dec 20th

Moving:
So I moved hosts on my other site to Pair yesterday (lots of savvy webmasters have recommended them to me). While I was still uploading the site the DNS already propagated through to the new location. I had to learn how to play with some .htaccess fast ;)

Broken Links:
After I moved I checked my site using Xenu and found a ton of broken links I need to update. Some stuff doesn't make any sense, like the Virtual Library's contact us and registration pages no longer exist.

While on the Topic of Directories:
Free Christmas gifts...

I have been doing tons of directory submissions recently, and thus know many directory owners. The following directories are giving away listings to the first 3 people who leave a comment below. After you comment find your relevant categories and give me your info via email me at seobook [At} gmail dot com using "free directory submission" as the subject and I will submit your sites for you.*

  • SevenSeek - John Scott's directory. He also has been thinking about eventually create a portal and search engine on that site.

  • Web Atlas - Nandini Maheshwari's fairly new directory. I have been helping her build up some good link popularity, and Web Atlas provides mutliple deep links with each listing.
  • Uncover the Net - Shawn Walter's somewhat new directory. I believe his directory has more pages in Google's cache than any other directory. He also recently create an affiliate program.
  • Rubber Stamped - Peter Da Vanzo's brand spanking new directory. Peter is a bit of a link hound, so look for him to build some good link popularity on the quick.

* Please no lead generation, affiliate, pharmacy, porn, insurance, debt, or gambling type websites. If your website is making you thousands of dollars per day please do not submit via this offer. :)

Now clearly several of the first responders are auto-comment programs... and thus this would make me one of the first three, right? Maybe not. I tried. Thanks again for a great blog!

Too bad I missed that directory deal! I visit your site regularly, but I failed to do it the right day I guess. Maybe next time!

Argh! Hey I'm brand new but missed that offer by 2 days. :( Oh well, now I will pull this feed daily. :)

Aaron, While searching for info on optimizing my site for search engines, marketing, etc...I ran across your book purely by accident while reading a forum thread where most of the comments pertained to how wonderful your book was. Well, I bought it and they were right! I have read nearly half of it and I've learned so much. I am sure that I will benefit from your expertise. Thank you so much!!!
