Would you like to get more visitors to your blog? One important step is to increase links to your blog by submitting it to a few blog directories (blog portals, blog registers).
You might not get so many visitors directly from these sites. However the search engines will consider your blog (or site) more important if links are leading to it and this way place your blog higher up in the search lists.
At least this is what I thought...
After reading Google Webmaster tools I've just realized it's more complicated than so...
It's obviously better to have managed to get a few Quality links to your blog than many with low quality (Quantity). Submitting your blog to a few (5 - 15) of these directories won't hurt though, I guess...
I will do it anyway and I'll tell you about the results!
