You may have noticed the I’ve Been Tagged band across the right side of the blog’s logo.
I don’t normally talk about directories I’ve added the blog to, considering that to be just normal SEO for the site. But the Tag Society is a bit of a different beast.
The Tag Society looks to keep a higher quality of website in its directory. In their own words,
We review each website so that the quality of the websites within this directory is kept at a higher level than many other web directories.
They also have a referral system in place. Your position in the directory is based on how many other websites you have referred. You get one listing point for every website you have referred, and the sites are listed in their categories by listing points.
While the goal of the Tag Society, to create a listing of quality sites, is a good one, I’m not crazy about the way their listings look. You can click here to see some of their listings. The little images that are presumably supposed to identify the website aren’t always meaningful. I always have to click through to the website to see what it actually is.
The Tag Society also requires a backlink in order to keep your listing points (the I’ve Been Tagged band counts as my backlink).
While a single directory listing doesn’t mean much in SEO terms, something as different as the Tag Society might become a nice traffic generator as it becomes popular with web surfers.
