I’ve just taken a novel step and am trying out two directory submission services. They’ve both taken a while to get started and yesterday I received a flood of submission notifications. Yay!
Buried within them though were some requiring a second step – click this link to confirm your submission.
That’s fantastic – ensures that bots have a harder time getting into your queues and the software manages the two steps.
However… if you are submitting to alot of directories, or are using a submission service you will still need someone to check all those emails and click those links. Hardly onerous, but essential!
I know in the past I’ve largely ignored those emails. I imagine they’ll be used more and more, and I’ll be looking out for them!
