I've reviewed SubmitEaze, which is a directory submission software, a couple of times over the last year (here and here). Those reviews were for versions 1 and 2, respectively, and today's is for version 3.0.
New features in SubmitEaze include:
- A new tool called Directory Detective, which locates a website's links in directories, including the Google PageRank, Anchor text, and whether the link uses 'nofollow' - all useful info for a webmaster. This info can then be exported.
- The auto-fill feature is now fully customizable, and you can add your own fields and control which fields it populates.
- You can take a screenshot of the web browser area so you can provide proof of submission to clients.
- When adding directories to the custom list, it checks the standard list to prevent duplication
- Export custom directory list to csv
- And a few more features as well.
The only thing I'd like to see is Alexa rank added to the list of information provided for each directory. However, what you can do is sort the Strongest Links directory by Alexa rank (like this) and then add their scores to the Notes section of SubmitEaze. Why do I care about the Alexa rank? Only because it helps gauge whether or not the directory is actually used by the public (not the most accurate gauge in the world, but the best one we can get). I actually do get real traffic from a few directories, and that's a big bonus to getting listed in a directory. Sure, directories are useful for linkpop, but add real traffic on top of that, and you've found a winning directory.
You'll find people declaring directory submissions are useless, but you won't hear that from me (at least not yet). I still find them to be useful, and anything that makes the process easier (short of outsourcing the task) will always get a big thumbs up from me.
