Directory Submission Guidelines
To have your company listed in our real estate directory it should meet or exceed the following criteria:
- Please ensure that you submit your website to the most accurate category that best describes your business. If your business services Toronto please do not submit your website as a national listing. Listings submitted to the wrong category may be rejected so please take the time to submit to the most accurate category / sub category in the directory.
- Do not submit sites with pop-ups. We will not accept any sites with pop-up code or other obtrusive technologies that interfere with the main viewing area of your homepage.
- Do not submit doorway pages, Adsense SPAM or search engine SPAM. We aim to provide our users with a quality directory of resources. If your site is devoid of content or is just a page of affiliate links and keyword SPAM it will NOT be included here.
- Do not submit sites associated with hate, crime, anti-semitism, drugs, pharmaceuticals, gambling, casino’s, weapons or with adult content.
- Do not submit interior pages of your website. Only top level domains with the form:
- http://www.domain.___ or http://domain.___ will be accepted in the directory.
- Deep linking is only allowed by category sponsors.
- ie. http://10.10.10.10 would NOT be an acceptable submission.
- Back links to our website must exist on pages that are indexed by Google (or on a new page in your links directory or site structure that can be indexed. The editorial staff will view the listing and make a judgement based on the indexing status of similiar URL’s in the directory or website and the linking structure of the directory or website).

Notes on Sponsored Listings and Refunds
- A payment of $19.95 does not gaurantee inclusion in this directory. This directory is professionally maintained by a human editorial staff and adheres to a strict editorial policy outlined in the submission guidelines above . Our goal is to provide accurate, well categorized results for our directory users. If you are unsure whether you think your site will qualify to be listed please send an email to the directory admin and we will give your site a quick evaluation free of charge.
- Our Sponsored listings are a great way to get more exposure for your listing; it is not a way to get a SPAMMY site included in a quality directory. Sites that do not meet the terms outlined above or that are judged by our editorial staff to be of low quality will not be included in the directory.
