Web Directory

One way of selling your products is through advertising, it could be posters, streamers, through media, and the most popular especially when you are targeting consumers all over the world is through the world wide web. But having a quality website is not enough. You must build a website that is searchable and with a good traffic. One way of creating traffic and improving your link popularity is by submitting your website to web directories.
Web directory is a collection of website addresses. These websites have contents which are related to a particular thing. It specializes in linking to other web. The links are organized by topic and being categorized and subcategorized into a more defined subject. Therefore, web directory is like refining your searches. 
Web directories often allow site owners to directly submit their site for inclusion, and have editors review submissions for fitness. Your listing consists in your website's title, URL and description. Submitting your site is easy, just browse until you found the best category for your website. It is usually maintained by expert and well trained human instead of software. And the approval is fast; usually it may take 24 hours or less.
Increasing your visitor through web directory is not costly as what you have thought. There are many free web directories listed in the World Wide Web. But some web directories require back linking or reciprocal linking from your site. This means a link back to the directory must be added somewhere on the submitted site in order to get listed in the directory. Or you can have the paid-submission-web-directory, a one-time or recurring fee is charged for reviewing/listing the submitted link.
Examples of well known, general, web directories are Yahoo! Directory and the Open Directory Project (ODP) also known as DMOZ (Directory Mozilla). ODP is significant due to its extensive categorization and large on the web and its free availability for use by other directories and search engines.
