Ally Web Directory became an authority site/directory today. I know it’s not a very special thing but still it’s a lot “special”. At least now, people can differentiate better directories from rest of the lot. At least now people will not judge directories on PageRank alone. It’s a good feeling to own a quality directory which even Google ranks as an authority site.
If you don’t know about what usually webmaster refer to an authority site, then here is some brief description.
What actually most of webmaster call as authority sites are basically a feature of Google search engine called Sitelinks. They are the links shown below few sites in Google’s search engine results and are solely meant to help users navigate the site, much more easily. Accordingly to Google, they have a system (algorithm) which analyzes the link structure of your site to find shortcuts that will save users to quickly find the information that they are looking for on your site.
Ally Web Directory is now an authority directory (so as to speak) with 7 sitelinks to the directory. It is a huge bonus. Specially when you know that page rank is not the thing that’s going to actually prove the worth of Ally Directory. The news kinda made my day. After probably whole year of Google’s miseries, this is the only good thing that happened in Google and mine relationship. Lol 😆
Thanks to my close friend, Sumit Bahl for breaking this news to me. 🙂
