Link Building For Your Web 2.0 App

October 29  |  Link Building  |   Ryan Clark

With all the crazy web 2.0 sites coming out these days, and yes the ones I’m finding to link build with, it gave me the idea to write this post. If you have your own web 2.0 app to promote you have many options which luckily will bring in some very juicy links! I’m currently helping a client promote his web 2.0 site and found an abundance of resources to get your site listed. Some things to keep in mind here are the quality and uniqueness of your web 2.0 site because a lot of these places I’m going to list have a strict quality control.

First up is the famous and most notable Mashable. This is the news spot for the web 2.0 world and luckily for you they take suggestions on sites to write about. Mashable is a blog that has a press release feel to the site. So go ahead and submit your site, and if you’re lucky enough you’ll get a nice writeup with do follow links to your site…along with an assload of traffic and exposure!

Next up is my favorite web 2.0 site, Feed My App. This great site is a web directory for web 2.0 sites you can submit your site absolutely free! If your site gets approved you’ll get added to the directory as well get a nice little write up better describing your site to their readers. This site has been growing quickly and is without a doubt a great place to get listed in.

Next up is another big web 2.0 directory that has been kicking it since 2006! Go2Web20 is one of the largest web 2.0 resource sites on the web today. The look and feel of the site is completely fresh and the directory is a visual browsing experience. It makes me never want to see another link directory again in my life! You can submit your site to get reviewed and if you’re lucky, your web 2.0 app will get sprung into the site.

Listio is another up and coming big hitter in the web 2.0 world and lists so many apps it makes my little head spin. Not only do they have a directory of sites, but they also review web 2.0 apps indepth which brings a little more juice to your links as well attracts way more potential users. I highly recommend you get your ass in gear and submit your site.

All Things Web 2.0 is another PR5 web directory that seems like total chaos upon viewing but is very worth the time trying to get in there. The sites looks to be built on Joomla, so that might explain the crazy design. Some of the extra features include most popular and best voted apps, so if you got something good you can potentially get some extra exposure. You can go ahead and submit your site here.

Ziipa is a great web 2.0 directory that usually will list your site within a few hours as well giving you a nice do follow link(as long as you anchor text it properly). The site is not too old but the way it’s layed out and marketed, it seems it will stand the test of time. I got not much else to write about, the site is pretty straight forward and just showcases your web 2.0 site in a beautiful way. Easily submit your site here.

NetWebApp is another newish web 2.0 directory that is quick to index your site and put it on display. It looks like it’s built from the same script as Feedmyapp and has all the same features. It is also getting a decent amount of traffic so it is very much worth the time submitting your site. The site already has a PR2 and is updated on a daily basis, or depending on how many submissions they got that day.

W2 Directory is another newish directory for web 2.0 sites only and it requires registration before submitting. The site itself has a lot going on such as a full featured search, profiles, news and a whole lot more. You can submit your site for free and reap the benefits of some traffic and exposure. I added my clients site a couple of hours ago and was listed within minutes of following the instructions in the email you get once you sign up.

That wraps up this post until a few more sites come out, and you know they will. This should be enough to get you started and be a big help obtaining new users to your web 2.0 app. If you want to list your site, or know of one, feel free to drop it in the comments and I will be sure to blog about it. You can also contact me and make me write about your web 2.0 app site.

    Mate, this is an AWESOME list – really useful as I was looking for some “normal” ways to promote my new mash-up site. This could do more for my site than all those other “schemes” put together (which I don’t use).

    Kudos to you for this. Just to point out that I believe the last directory in your list, w2directory, is paying. I don’t think there’s a free listing anyway. This may have changed from when you posted this. It’s only $4, but still, people will want to know this I’m sure.

  2. Hey – great list! But the link on the logo is wrong, you are missing a “2”. It should be

    Thanks for the list though!

    Web 2.0 is a broad umbrella concept covering a great number of areas ranging from web site design and software architecture to new business models. It combines a wide range of technological and social trends which form the new Internet and a new class of web applications.

    Technologies themselves are not what Web 2.0 is about. Revolutionary new ideas are at the bottom of Web 2.0. It embraces quite a number of social phenomena like social networking, user-generated content and collective intelligence. And technologies which become popular in the Web 2.0 era are merely the means to make it easy for everyone to participate, share and create. Therefore blogs, social bookmarking and networking sites are some of the most popular online destinations nowadays.

    Since 2004, when the term “Web 2.0” was used for the first time, it has transformed from an IT buzzword into a mainstream trend which affects both individuals and enterprises. Developing software, as well as doing business, in the Web 2.0 era demands from us to adjust to the realities of the new Web.
