List of best Blog Directories, RSS Networks and Ping Servers

By Ajay, Category: Blog Promotion, Date: April 24, 2008

Following is the list of Blog Directories and RSS Networks with feedback/comments and ranking. I’ve listed only very high quality blog directories/RSS Networks. All the useless/defunct/dead directories are in the last section.

At no. 1 is Technorati, it is still the best and most popular way to promote your blog. You can claim as many blogs as you wish from the same account. They have Authority system which they calculate based on various criteria. You can find more information on Technorati Aughtority from their website.

Doesn’t accept new Blogs. You can claim as many blog as you want. They take ages to approve a blog if it is unpaid. It offers a widget which is a nice feature and can be on this website. Also accepts paid services to make your blog listed in featured blog for the purchased categories which is useless feature. I got more views with free listed blog than the paid ones.

However if you are desperate to get your blog listed there then obviously you have to sponsor a category and get approved immediately.

Just Blog submission and not other services. You can submit one blog per account.

Zimbio is a new concept, it is purely gossip website with big big pics of attractive women and in the background they have mix of blog and articles.

You can create your own wikizines but wait for ages to get it come out of draft state.

You can promote you posts and it gets indexed. The only cause of concerned would be duplicate content if you know what does it mean.


Blog directory

Blog submission, a reciprocal link is required.

Reciprocal blog submission directory, requires a lengthy and cumbersome form to be submitted, so before submitting get your details ready. You need to know a little bit of html to add their link back to your blog.

    Just wanted to know where it was you got your information regarding Bloggapedia
    ‘asking for money after rejecting’ a blog submission??
    We don’t ask for money from anyone, ever. Submissions are free, though we do offer featured link status for a yearly subscription.
    And yes, the minor criteria that a blog be ACTIVE for at least three months before submitting is to help ensure we populate our directory with viable blogs that are kept up to date. We don’t want to offer a site full of defunct blogs any more than a visitor would like to utilize a site that is full of defunct blogs.

    A truly human edited directory has criteria that ensure a good end product. We pride ourselves in presenting the best of the best of the blogosphere and again, we do NOT ‘ask for money’ at any point in the submission process – rejected blog or otherwise.
