Although we only approve good quality websites we know that a lot of people like to submit to CSS showcase sites and Flash portfolios to gain a bit of traffic and links from search engines. It’s a great idea and often, if you get onto the homepage of one of the popular showcase sites you can have a new site indexed in a matter of days. We’ve found that our other sites can gain hundreds of visits in a matter of days from CSS galleries.
Why not take this further and add a comment to your submission? Our simple comments system allows you to add more about your site, tell people why it’s good, why they should vote for your site and why it should be number 1. Those comments are readable by search engines so a good discussion can turn a single page with a description about your site into a page full of keywords and links back to your site.
On 101 Best Websites we also have a simple bookmarking widget to allow you to add your site page to various social networks and bookmarking sites. It doesn’t take long to gain momnetum and push a simple submission of a great site into a campaign to promote not only your design but also your site, company or product.
And remember all of our approved submissions get listed on our RSS feed and Twitter page: http://twitter.com/101bestwebsites
