URL Submissions

    General rules:
  • Only root domain Submission. No deep links. For Example site with www.domain.com/page/article.html is not allowed. For deep link submission a reciprocal link is required.
  • Site must be submitted to appropriate category. Improper category selection will lead to rejection.
  • Directory editor will verify the contents of your web site before it will be available to our visitors.
  • Your server must generate a valid "200 OK" response code for the URL you submit.
  • Do not submit mirror sites. Mirror sites are sites that contain identical content, but have altogether different URLs.
  • Do not submit URLs that contain only the same or similar content as other sites you may have listed in the directory. Sites with overlapping and repetitive content are not helpful to users of the directory. Multiple submissions of the same or related sites may result in the exclusion and/or deletion of those and all affiliated sites.
  • Do not disguise your submission and submit the same URL more than once.
    Example: http://www.urllib.com and http://www.urllib.com/index.html
  • Do not submit any site with an address that redirects to another address.
  • Do not submit sites "under construction." Wait until a site is complete before submitting it. Sites that are incomplete, contain "Under Construction" notices, or contain broken graphics or links aren't good candidates for the directory.

  • Don't submit sites consisting largely of affiliate links.
  • Web site content must be predominantly in English.
  • Do a quick search in the directory at URLlib.com (the home of the URL lib Directory Project) to be sure your site isn't already listed. This saves everyone time.
  • You should submit a site to the single most relevant category. Sites submitted to inappropriate or unrelated categories will be rejected or removed.
  • Descriptions of sites should describe the content of the site concisely and accurately. They should not be promotional in nature. Submitting a promotional description rather than an objective, well written description may significantly delay your site from being listed or prevent your site from being listed at all.
  • Auto-submission software is (and always has been) a violation of this procedure. Sites submitted automatically are flagged and deleted after the submission is accepted, without notification to you. Persistent automatic submission may force us to ban you from the URL lib site, so we can provide resources to real human beings.
  • An editor will review your submission to determine whether to include it in the directory. Depending on factors such as the volume of submissions to the particular category, it may take several days or more before your submission is reviewed. Please only submit a URL to the URL lib Directory once. Again, multiple submissions of the same or related sites may result in the exclusion and/or deletion of those and all affiliated sites. Disguising your submission and submitting the same URL more than once is not permitted.
