– Gladstone Taylor


Requirement and Challenges

Before doing the directory submissions, was not ranking even in the top 50 positions in any of the search engines for any of the targeted terms. There were very few backlinks pointing to and due to all these reasons, the traffic to the site was minimal.

Action Taken

Mr. Taylor was very clear about his goals and chose to opt for the service that would help him attain the desired results for his site. In fact, he smartly chose his keywords, not going for really competitive terms but long tail terms that would help meet his target audience. He came to us and placed an order for 400 submissions and that is when we started working on this website.

Our research team  reviewed the keywords, titles and descriptions that were supposed to be used in the submission details to see whether relevant keywords were being targeted. We corrected any spelling or grammatical mistakes in the submission details to make the submission as perfect as possible for maximum approval.

Having done that, we started with the manual directory submission process. We submitted this site to quality search engine friendly directories which give out permanent one-way links and are constantly indexed by Google and other popular search engines.


Our link building efforts paid off quickly for Keeping Fit and Healthy! The directories started approving their links which increased their link count and their keywords started ranking in the very First Page of Google shortly after the links were approved. The traffic to the site also improved drastically due to this increase in the search engine rankings. And all these developments and improvements happened only after 1 batch of submissions, not multiple orders!

There is definitely more scope for ranking improvement for Keeping Fit and Healthy since only 400 regular submissions have been done till now. Getting more directory links will only further strengthen the search engine ranking position.
