Submission Guidelines

Submission Guidelines

Okay, this a little explanation on how this works :

PrimeSiteUK is a simple, no nonsense website of internet shopping resources for both shoppers and businesses alike.  We do not claim to be everything to everyone, just a simple resource, no bells or whistles because life is complicated enough.

How Our Directory Is Structured :

The directory is hierarchically arranged by subject – from broad to specific and is maintained by the screening team who evaluate website submissions for inclusion. They are our experts, and all submissions are subject to editor evaluation.

Quality Listings :

We care a great deal about the quality of PrimeSiteUK in which we pride ourselves on being highly selective with whom we list.

We don’t accept all sites, so please don’t take it personally should your website not be accepted – if this proves to be the case and its a paid listing, a FULL REFUND will automatically be made within three (3) working days.

However and not being infallible, occasionally and for whatever reason; we make the odd mistake so if you feel this is the case do please send us a message via our help desk area and we’ll happily take another look.

Our Goal :

Our goal is to make the shopping as useful as possible for our members and visitors alike, not to have the shopping include all (or even most) of the websites that could possibly be listed or serve as a promotional tool for the entities listed.

Categories :

Many submission reviews are delayed if submitted to the wrong categories.

To find the most appropriate categories for your business website, drill down into the most appropriate categories according to the content of your website. This is important because shopping users often drill down to the topic in which they are interested. If you submit your site to a too general topic, you may get missed by your target audience.

If you can’t find the appropriate category of your choice, no stress, simply make a suggestion in the submission form. Only Silver or Gold Packages may apply to be placed in the main category.

Descriptions :

1) The goal of a description is to write a summary of what your website offers.

2) Explain to the visitor know why your website would be useful to them.

3) Start with a short overview and include a few main aspects.

4) Anything that makes the website unique should also be mentioned.

5) Describe the features, the product and/or service.

6) Do not CAPITALISE the first letter of every word.

7) Make your descriptions as objective as possible as shown in the below examples.

Common Mistakes In Site Titles & Descriptions :

1) Impossible boasts or pompous hype,

2) Unnecessary capitals or exclamation marks,

3) Poor grammar,

4) Including the business/website name in the description (it should already be in the title).

Keywords :

1) Use only keywords that relate to your business topic or product,

2) Include keywords that you want your business to be found for,
