    Hi-

    I was wondering if any one could send me a list or point me to a list or resources of directories that I can submit my health site to.

    TIA

    You can submit to nonprofit-directory.org if your site is nonprofit.

    Most of the directories out there are a waste of time... just get listed at Snap.com, Yahoo.com, and Looksmart.com. That's were the traffic will come from.

    Yahoo just sent out a request for any doctors or hospitals to submit their site to YAHOO!Health "The Little Blue Book"

    The letter was sent to me by Raphael Werner Manager of Data Integrity.
    His e-mail is- raphaelw@tlbb.com.

    I think you should post your site to the top search engines:
    Altavista
    Dmoz
    Excite
    Google
    Hotbot
    Infoseek
    Lycos
    Magellan
    MSN
    Northern Light
    Snap
    Webcrawler
    Yahoo

    Once added you can use AgentWebRanking Freeware to track your search engines position.

    Webcrawler and Excite are merging their databases and offer cross searching capabilities.

    The same for Lycos, Snap and Hotbot. These are all the same company and are merging their databases.

    Lycos, Excite and several others also use the DMOZ directory so if your listed there you will show up on other directories.

    I personally have never used the Google, Northern Light or Magellan directories.

    I agree with Matt in that you should focus your energies on a few of the major engines. The three he listed are good and I would add the open directory at dmoz.org because it is trying to catalog the internet and catch Yahoo.

    After that then you should start looking for reciprocal links with other sites similar to yours.

    A free form with URL's to both the main page and "Add url" page is located at http://www.cre8pc.com/searchdir.html

    Thematic directories (theme oriented) are gaining in popularity due to the ongoing SPAMDEXING nonsense occuring in engines, making results irrelevant and disorganized.

    Directories accept submissions by the use of humans, who have a set of rules to follow. Only pertinent sites that are professional and have related content are accepted, and categorized. Users expect better results from directories.

    Open Directory Project is the backbone of several, but you must submit to each one separately. These aren't shared databases.

    There's new technology being developed that will be incorporating a more directory-like style. A major part will be the quality of sites your site is linked to.

    As one who, as a consultant, did research for pharmaceutical companies in engines, I can attest that the more specialized the directory, the better my results. Engines contain millions and millions of pages, many of them doorways and hallways that don't offer content. The mistake is thinking professionals follow those links. They don't.

    Since so many sites don't get into Yahoo, it's important to become familiar with others.
