Background on Incrawler
InCrawler is a web directory for small businesses. Quality web directories categorize, describe and link to useful websites. They are a great source for permanent, relevant links to a website.
Here are the two types of listings you can create on InCrawler:
Premium Listing – If you choose this listing, your submitted site gets reviewed within three business days. You can use up to five niche-related words in the title of your company if the company name itself is unrelated to your field. You will pay a one-time fee of $49.95 in order to complete the process.
Basic Listing – You get a longer review time (seven days) and your site appears below other premium listings. You still get to submit your site, this time for a one-time fee of $24.95. You can use a bulk submission process if you plan on submitting more than 10 websites at once.
This guide will walk you through the site submission process for InCrawler.
How to Submit Your Site to InCrawler
Step 1. Start at InCrawler.com.
Step 2. Look through the directories and look for the category that best describes the function of your business.
Navigate to the most relevant and specific category for your site. Then, click the link for your chosen category and select “Add URL.” For more information, view this link. A basic listing will be reviewed within a week’s time.
Step 3. Continue to choose your related category until you’re able to see an “Add URL” link to click on at the bottom of the webpage.
Step 4. Enter your Email Address, Site Title, Description, Keywords, URL, and the other fields that are necessary. Once complete, click “Submit Your Site.”
Step 5. Go through the final steps for processing your payment for submitting your site. Once you complete this process, you’ll finish the site submission sequence on your end. You’ll have to wait three or seven business days in order to have your submission live.
