Guidelines for Successful Listings

First and foremost please read our Terms and Conditions page. Failure to adhere to the terms and conditions will result in listing applications being rejected.

So you have a better idea what works and what doesn't, I'll give you some guidelines of how best to list your website within the Aussiesrus Australia Directory. Successful listings that will rank well with the search engines are very important to your website as good listings will boost your traffic.

Most important is the Description field from which Metakeys are generated. Aussiesrus use the description information provided by you to formulate metakeys for search engines to find your website listing, products and services.

Search engines love unique content. If your website information is precisely the same as your listing information word for word the search engines will most likely rank your listing poorly or even drop it all together as duplicate content.

Search engines understand text and HTML code. If your website is heavy on graphics with little text this is not good.

You spend a lot of time building your website as a portal to your business so spend the time wisely when you create your listing with Aussiesrus and this will help us to help you be found more ways on the Internet.

What works:

  • Do a quick search in the directory to make sure your site isn't already listed. If your site is already listed then claim it and update your listing.
  • Identify the single best category for your site. The Aussiesrus directory has an enormous array of subjects to choose from. You should submit a site to the single most relevant category. Sites submitted to inappropriate or unrelated categories may be rejected or removed.
  • Make sure your free listing is placed in the correct locality. Locality means town or suburb. NOT city or state. Only paid option members can place their listing in the city or state categories.
  • Try to include your description information uniquely from your website information. Mix it up a little.
  • Be descriptive and concise as possible.
  • Make your description text based.
  • Use the standard font provided.
  • Provide accurate information.
  • Include as much information about your website, products and services as possible.  
  • Please Note: If you are submitting a free listing then make sure you have selected your locality. 

What doesn't work:


  • Copy and paste your website information word for word in your listings description field.
  • Add complex html into your description field.
  • Add graphics into your description field.
  • Use unusual fonts.
  • Over do it with repetitive information.
  • Add links.
  • Write one line descriptions.
  • Adding your free listing that is not in your locality. This will result in a failed submission.
  • Provide false or misleading information.  


The main reasons why listing submissions into the Aussiesrus Business Directory fail is due to the above and below:

  • Incorrectly or not entering the full user name during registration. Do not enter your business name when registering for a login. Enter your full name.
  • Incorrect business name used during listing submissions. Listing submissions that spam keywords instead of business name are instantly deleted.
  • Any business that uses their non-website email address in the listing submission email field do not get accepted. Especially free public supplied email addresses.
  • Listing submissions where the email address supplied is Gmail, Ymail, Hotmail etc are instantly deleted.
  • Any listing submission that appears false or misleading.  


As well as these guidelines please refer to our Terms and Conditions and FAQ's page. Should you have questions and can't find answers on these pages you may contact the administrator of Aussiesrus Australia to get more help. But please do spend the time to read these guidelines, Terms and Conditions and Faqs first.
