Checking to see if you are in Directories

The most important Directory is DMOZ

Our example:
Search: eslincanada
http://www.dmoz.org/search?q=eslincanada

My results:

Open Directory Categories (1-2 of 2)
Arts: Education: Language Arts: English: English as a Second Language: Language Schools: North America: Canada: Directories (1)

ESL in Canada - List of schools and resources in Canada. Comparative information, agency services, advice, and recommendations.

Open Directory Sites (1-2 of 2)

-- http://www.eslincanada.ca/ Regional: North America: Canada: Education: Resources for Educators (1)

They have 2 sites both .ca and .com and both are listed

The next directory to use is Yahoo

We used ESL in Canada as the search term

Our results

http://dir.yahoo.com/regional/countries/canada/social_science/linguistics_and_human_languages/languages/specific_languages/english/english_as_a_second_language/

The #1 listing:
ESL in Canada Directory -
Listings of language schools, university courses, co-operative programs, TESL training, and more. Features articles on studying, volunteering, and working in Canada. www.eslincanada.com

When you use Bing or Google - they are search engines. They keep track of searches - your previous activity will influence any subsequent searches. If you go to your site on your computer - then use search - your site will be at the top - On another computer it may not be in the first 20 pages.

For SEO it is important to know that directory listings are only part of Search engine results. To accurately see search engine results which will include directory listings - go to a neutral computer.
