How to Get Instant World Wide Directory Submission For Your Website

We are living in an age which is instant by its very nature. Everything that we do has to be instant. Our work equipment is aimed to speed up the work and to reduce the time. This ‘instant’ nature of our world is transformed to the business and the results of the efforts related to the business as well. The online business is no exception and we want the things to give us instant results. It is a fact that the tools which provide instant results are preferred all around the web. When it comes to the world wide directory submission the same thing happens; we want to get it done instantly. Everyone does not get the instant results from the directory submissions due to their lack of understanding of the entire process. Here is how to speed up the things and to get the results instantly.

First of all you need to understand what web directory submissions are. The web directories have links which are categorized according to the respective niches. These directories generally have higher Page rank due to the number of incoming and outgoing links. If you can get a link from the directory, you can influence your own page rank. This is why directory submission is so popular among the marketers. You can find thousands of directories and can submit your links to all of them resulting in huge improvement in your page rank and traffic.

You will find paid directories as well as free directories out there. You will have to get your links to as many web directories as many you can. This will help you to beat the competition and you will be able to knock out your opponents who are also submitting their websites to as many directories as many they can. If you can get the things done quickly, then there is every chance that you will become the niche leader and they will have to come from behind to beat you. That is why the instant submissions are our focus here.

There are primarily two methods to submit your websites to the directories. One is manual submissions while the other is automatic submissions using the software and robots which are programmed to do this specific job.

You will have to choose the software to submit the links to the directories. The manual world wide directory submission will guarantee that the links are submitted to every directory but this will generally take more time and you will have to work a lot harder submitting the link manually to every directory and imagine doing this a thousand times!

Using the software to make world wide directory submission is a good method to speed up the things. It will help you to get the submissions done instantly. Just make sure that you do not trust the software for everything. Just use it to get its job done and then check the submissions yourself. At times you will have to manually submit the links to a few directories. Do not hesitate to do that as it will guarantee that you are not missing any chances of getting high quality traffic.

Affiliate Marketing – is Link Cloaking REALLY Necessary?

The simple answer is – Yes! To yourself the best possible chance of being successful and profitable in the Affiliate Marketing world, Link Cloaking really IS necessary.

The main reason you should cloak your affiliate link is to avoid link bypassing. When you move your mouse over a link, your AFFILIATE link can be seen in the status bar. All someone has to do is type the link into their address box without your affiliate ID added. This will bypass YOU and take them directly to the merchant.

Why would someone want to do this?

Some people just want to deal directly with the company that created the product. Maybe they feel they’ll get better support.

They may try to become an affiliate themselves, before the purchase, and insert their own ID instead of yours. Meaning that they get what should be YOUR commission.

Either way, you miss out on the sale.

There also some people who resent the idea of affiliates making money out of THEM if they purchase the product. When you cloak and shorten the link, it will give them the impression that it is your own website and they will feel happier about clicking on the link.

The advantage of making your links short is that they are easier to share – and easier for people to remember. They also LOOK nicer. Impression is very important in this business – visitors will only click on links that look reliable.

You can track stats on cloaked links so you know how many clicks you’re getting and where they’re coming from. When you use a link cloaking software your domain name will still be shown when your visitors clicks on the link – this is very important for branding.

So, do you understand now why Link Cloaking really is necessary? I hope so.essary? I hope so.

Dora the Explorer to Dora Links Fashion Doll – Our Little Explorer Grows Up

Dora the Explorer grows up and is getting a “new look” in the soon to be released Dora Links Fashion Doll. Can we still call her Explorer? You all know Diego’s cousin…she is a young explorer full of spark and energy and she loves a good adventure. She is a kind, exciting, bilingual preschooler. She enjoys adventures and shares them with her friends, Boots Back Pack and sometimes her cousin Diego, the star of Go Diego Go. We have all enjoyed her show for years on Nick.

Wait…that describes the Old Dora…the one we knew and loved. As her audience ages, her parent company wants to keep up with her fans as they grow by making her older too! As with all of us, time has passed and our sweet little explorer has grown up…The Explorer is now a tween and we will see her new look this fall when Nickelodeon and Mattel introduce us to her new line and virtual world. Living in the city and going to middle school, it seems our explorer has grown into a Diva Girl…who likes to do tweenaged things like shop, wear jewelry and she is now into fashion. There’s even going to be a virtual Dora Links web world where we can hang out…just like with Webkinz, Neopets, Littlest Pet Shop Pets and the other very popular virtual world toys we have become familiar with. I guess this Virtual Shopping Explorer will have secret codes, code cheats, games and possibly some favorite tween secret recipes too!

There is no mention of Dora’s friends…You know the gang…Boots the Monkey…Swiper the Fox…Fiesta Trio…Backpack and Map…Isa…Tico and Benny the Bull. Since most of these characters are not city animals…it makes me think they won’t be included in this new world, but since it’s virtual, there might be a park in it for them. And I don’t know that Backpack and Map won’t be traded for Purse, Cel Phone and GPS! I’m just guessing of course, but it does make sense.

It makes us all wonder what the new grown up Links Fashion Doll will be like…will she be the same adventurous soul we knew and loved as a child? Of course, we certainly all hope we can recognize the old Spirit in this new grown up form. It’s not likely that such a spirited soul could totally disappear into a shrieking, shopping Teen Princess…is it? Nick and Mattel tell us that Tween Dora will still solve mysteries, let’s hope it’s not where to find the shiniest glitter eye shadow or the most exciting goth halloween costume!

With your new Dora Links Fashion Doll you can hook her up to your computer, and when you change her look virtually, you change your doll’s look in the real world too. How do they do that? This Magical world can change her hair, eyes…and more. When you visit this “Virtual World” it will be a Webkinz World kind of experience for tween girls. Girls will be able to explore, earn virtual money and be challenged by mysteries which will be introduced to you online. There is even an alert you will receive to notify you when a new mystery has been released. The company is marketing this new Dora at girls aged 5 and up…and it will probably retail at 59.00 each…will this doll pass our initial inspection? Most likely, her virtual world sounds really cool, and I imagine this older explorer doll will have quite a Webkinz like following among the soon to be Tweenaged girls. Bottom line, unless some information sneaks out, we will all have to wait for the release of this new Tween Dora Links Fashion Doll. We all will just have to wait and see if we like the new version of our favorite Explorer as much as we like the younger version we all are used to.
