Directory Maximizer, an established name in the field of directory submissions has been working hard for more than 3 years to make directory submissions more rewarding & effortless.
Providing clients with hassle free service has been their motto throughout & with this in mind they have added 2 more features to “maximize” your directory submission experience :
1. Monthly Subscription: We all know how forgetful we can be in missing out on submitting to directories regularly. With their newly introduced “Monthly Subscription” feature, you do not have to come back every now and then to order for new directories, just opt to have your site submitted to 100 directories per month for a period of 12 months. A sure way of building a continuous flow of quality one-way links at a nominal charge of $14 per month. You also need not worry about making regular payments, as the amount would be automatically debited from your account.
2. E-mail Handling: Everyone we know is fed up of checking their mails from directories. Thanks to Directory Maximizer’s new “E-Mail Handling” service, the painful days of checking your inbox continuously for e-mails from directories are gone, they will take over & all you need to do is enjoy the results. They will open a new email account solely dedicated for your submissions and will respond to all the mails coming from the directories, be it a confirmation mail, approval mail or something which requires you to click back for a link approval. All this is for a minimal cost of 2 cents per submission. Thus if you opt for an e-mail handling service along with your submissions it will only cost you a total of 16 cents per submission.
With these new features in the kitty of Directory Maximizer, they have taken directory submission service to a new level. Their constant desire to innovate & discover new customer satisfaction techniques continue making directory submissions with them a rewarding experience.

With Directory Submissions in the line of fire and people shying away from it, there has been a general misconception that submitting to directories is harmful for your site. Can somebody get me the guy who was kind enough to spread this baseless allegation on directory submissions!! For people who are wondering why I am advocating submitting to directories, it’s to state a universal truth. If directory submissions were harmful, it would be real simple to kill competition. Submit your competitor’s site to directories and later attend the funeral!
Lets face it, directory submissions are one of the main sources of links apart from various other methods. It’s effective especially when building links for niche and not so competitive search terms. I have seen the results myself and if you’re not too greedy with the terms you target in your directory submissions, you could be pleasantly surprised with the results.
Here’s an example of one of the sites tested: http://www.statisticalforecasting.com was submitted to directories using 5 different titles and descriptions. The titles used were ‘Forecasting & Statistics in Business’, ‘Statistical Forecasting’, ‘Methods of Forecasting’, ‘Statistical Techniques’ and ‘Statistics and Forecasting’. If individual searches are conducted in Google for each of these titles, you would see that the site ranks in the top 10 for some of these terms (not mentioning the rankings out here since they might change with time). What’s important to note is that this site has never been promoted by any method other than directory submissions and they’re still ranking on top!
A manual submission service, Directory Maximizer, was used for the submissions and the results are there for all to see. So I would advise all NOT to ignore directory submissions on mere hearsay, it can work if you rotate your titles, think about the target terms and take the time to do your submissions properly. If you don’t have the time to do submissions yourself, I would recommend taking a look at Directory Maximizer, they have some great features. If you choose to do submissions yourself, you can find a huge resource of free directories on our site, so feel free to use them.
