Welcome and thank you for your interest in submitting
your website to the directory of Internet Stones. COM.
Please take a moment to review these "Rules and
Guidelines" for submission of your listing to our directory. Failure
to understand and follow these rules and guidelines will result in the
rejection of your submission.
1) Please do not submit duplicate content to our
directory. Duplicate content means a company/individual listing
description (Word for word) that have already been put by you on
other websites/your website.
This is for your own benefit, because if you copy and
paste what you have already put up anywhere on the net your listing will
not be indexed by the search engines and therefore you will not benefit
from the listing on our website.
This duplicate content problem can be easily solved
by simply rewriting the description of your listing so that it will not
be exactly word for word like the listings you have put up elsewhere. In
other words for your listing to be indexed by the search engines you
will have to make the description unique.
Search engines take duplicate content very seriously,
because if they provide the same search result page from different
websites to a user during a single search, the user will get irritated
and use a different search engine.
We use state of the art software at COPYSCAPE.COM to
automatically scan the web for duplicate content pages, if we find out
that your listing is a duplicate we will be notified automatically and
your listing will be deleted. For more details go to

to the point.

services/company profile we are different from other directories on the
net. Other directories do not publish more than a few words of

a detail company profile.

words and search terms. Words and phrases like "cool" and "best darn
site" will be removed.
4) Please check to make sure that this is the
single category that you think your site should be listed in. If you
search for the best category to list your site and submit it, your
listings are more likely to be approved.

category page where you want to be listed then you click the suggest
listing bar on the top of the page.
