The MasterMoz Directory - Link site with a Difference

I love being asked to write a review on a site related to what I Blog about anyway and The MasterMoz Directory is one of those. The thing that I really like about this site is the way that links are continually checked for accurate content (i.e related to the category they have been submitted to) and also if you find a site that doesn't really fit into the category that you are in - as long as you have your facts right they will do something about it.

Heres a quote from the site to explain what I mean...

Websites that are listed on MasterMOZ, are continually monitored by the peer members of the categories they are listed in. If a listing is found to be inaccurate, the listing must be edited by the owner/author within 15 days or it will go off-line.
I decided to submit my site to the directory. Signing up for the site is easy, I like simple signup forms that don't ask for your life story and this site has an easy one. Member name, email address and password - once you have registered they send you an email to confirm you are who you say you are. One thing to be careful of is to check your spam folder - I found the confirmation email went straight in there. (I am a user of Gmail.)
Now that your account has been approved you need to locate an appropriate directory from the main page and then find the sub category that best suits your site.

For my Blog I submitted it to the Internet Blogs FAQs, Help and Tutorials category - it was just a matter of browsing to that category and then clicking on submit listing. Another great feature that I was impressed with was the feature where you just type in your web address and the system automatically picks up the title and description from your site.

Once you have entered the rest of the information about your site thats it, your site is added and you can now view it which looks like the screen shot below. There are links out to your Alexa rating, Backlinks and Visitors to the Directory can rate your site so there is also a social networking side to this directory.

Submitting your site to directorys is a great way to increase your search engine rankings, the more sites that link to you makes you more "popular" in Googles eyes. So its a good idea to submit your site to Directorys like MasterMoz.
