Check Directory Submissions for a second step…

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!

    Hi Sarah!

    This is Eric Blackwell from REW / DP et al…great post. I saw your link to this on your DP profile and clicked.

    I tried using a directory submission service that did nothing for me. If these folks are good, do you mind sharing their info and I’ll send some business their way…I am happy to do the second step–would like to get Step One off my back though…

    Hope all is well in NZ…

    Can somebody tell me where i can get a realtime backlink check for free for the SEO Results?
    I have the problem that every backlink checker in the Search Engines gives a different result sometimes more than 500 + or -.
    Do you also know which is the best backlinck checker in web for an SEO beginner?
    Thank you for your answer and greetings.

    I’ve actually always wondered if the second step is doing something other than just protecting from bots. Maybe not as safe as we may think.
