This list of unacceptable web site characteristics is not exhaustive.  A Directory editors reserve the right to reject any web site, for any reason.  Submission review fees are non-refundable.  If your web site submission is rejected, your submission review fee will not be refunded.


You must include the company name or web site name in the Title field.  You may also include two or three additional keywords, but the title length, including spaces, may not exceed 50 characters.


You must specify the web site address.  Deep links (to internal pages of a web site) will not be accepted.


You must include a web site or web page description in the Description field.  Descriptions should be at least 100 characters in length and at most 400 characters long.  Write your descriptions as complete sentences; capitalize the first letter of each sentence as well as proper nouns.  Do not include superlative adjectives or promotional language in your description.  A good web site description can often be two or three sentences long, using a total of 25 to 50 words.

A Directory editors appreciate informative, user-friendly web sites, with well-written titles and descriptions.  If you have any questions about these Submission Guidelines or the Terms of Service, please do not hesitate to contact us.
