Do not list the same site
using different URLs in the same topic. Do not list
the same site in a topic and the next level subtopic.
This is considered spamming the directory and may result in
having the site banned. A site may be listed in more
than one subtopic as long as they are in separate topic
trees (for example, a site about a company in Phoenix, AZ
might be listed in its specific subtopic in Business and in
the Regional topic for Phoenix).
Do not list sites using URL redirects. These include
welcome.to, i.am, go.to, and others. The complete site
should be hosted on the same domain as the entry page.
An exception may be made for sites that include a remotely
hosted chat or message board as long as the bulk of the site
is hosted on its own domain.
Metasites and Multiple URLs
You should also contact the topic manager before you list
sub URLs of metasites. He or she will determine whether it is
better to simply list the main URL in a high level topic, or
if it is of more use to take individual sub URLs and add
these to the respective sub topics.
If a company has
several URLs add only one. The URL containing the
company name is the best choice, if none do, submit the
In most cases, links only sites should not be added. These
are often not well maintained and very often contain broken
links. Many of them do not offer unique content and it would
make more sense to pick the better listings and add these to
the directory instead. If you have a links site that does seem
to be kept up to date and you feel it would make a good
addition to the directory, contact the topic manager for that
site and get his or her opinion first.
