SubmitWolf - Category selection information


Can I submit Adult sites with SubmitWolf?
Yes, SubmitWolf offers Adult related categories. If your website is adult related, contains nudity or is sex related, it must be submitted to the Adult categories within SubmitWolf.

Can I submit gambling / betting / lottery sites with SubmitWolf?
Yes. All gambling related sites must be submitted to the Entertainment - Gambling categories. There is a category for online and offline gambling.

What type of sites can be submitted to the Personal Home Pages category ?
The Personal Home Pages category is for personal sites, eg sites about John Smith, or John Smith's dog. This category is not for commercial websites.


How do I select an appropriate category for my website?
The category you select is important, as it dictates which search engines will be submitted to. If you select an inappropriate category, your site will be submitted to engines that are totally unrelated to your site. eg. submitting an Accountancy service website to the Automotive / Cars category will most likely result in your website not being listed, as its not about the automotive or car industry.

It is pointless submitting a website to an irrelevant unrelated category. The engine will not list your your website and you will be unable to resubmit the site in the correct category as SubmitWolf automtically prevents multiple submissions to engines. This is a built in feature of SubmitWolf to prevent sites from being banned due to multiple submissions. In addition, submitting to an unrelated category would result in untargetted traffic eg. Wrong type of visitor, hence no sales. If someone is looking for a company to do Web design, they won't be looking in Automotive or Music search engines, they will be looking on Computers and Internet related search engines.


The SubmitWolf categories are grouped logically. Please read the entire list before selecting a category, as there may be a more suitable category further down the list.

To select a category, you need to think what your website is mainly about. eg. A site about cars would be in the Automotive category. A website selling shopping cart software would be in the Internet / Software category. Even though the Automotive industry may be able to use the shopping cart software, the shopping cart website is not about cars.

If you need help selecting a category, email support with your website URL and we will advise you of the most suitable category for your site.

These categories have been selected in order to align with the most common categories offered by search engines and directories. Please select carefully, as although many of the categories appear to be repeated, there are differences in the type of sites that are accepted under each category.
