  1. Free or Regular Listing
Free listing is the most preferred type of directory submission, there is no guaranty for getting approved. Here the submitted links are checked and approved manually by the webmaster if everything is found good. Approval may take a longer time (sometimes months) as everyday lots of people are submitting their links. For getting quick approval, please go through the submission guidelines of each directory. Links can be permanent or for a specific period of time as per the rules of different directories.
