Submitting a website / blog to ITB

July 30, 2013 update
We are suspending detailed review of blogs (point 2 below). We'll announce it when we re-start accepting requests for blog review.   

Hi.

Welcome to this page. We, the ITB team members, are happy to be associated with you.  

Do submit your blog / website for one or more of the following. All submissions are free of charge.

1. For inclusion in the Directory of Best Indian Blogs [only Indian blogs]
2. For detailed review of your bog or website 
3. For showcasing your blog on Indian Top Blogs [only blogs]

1.  For inclusion in the Directory of Best Indian Blogs

A blog need not be submitted for its ranking or inclusion in the blog directory. Yet, since we may not discover the blog on our own, it helps if a blog is suggested to us for inclusion in the blog directory.
For bringing a deserving blog to our notice for the directory, do email its URL to kp.nd.2008@gmail.com.
If you send your blog for review or showcase, you need not send it for inclusion in the directory. During the review, if we find your blog meeting our criteria, we will put your blog automatically in the Best Blog Directory and inform you about that. All the blogs in the blog directory are examined for the next blog ranking/ blogosphere survey.


2. For detailed review of your bog or website 

Indian Top Blogs reviews Indian as well as non-Indian blogs and websites for content, design, interactivity, scheduling and other aspects that have a bearing on the quality of any blog. The expert advice given by us since February 2011 has helped many bloggers in improving their blogs in small ways but with good impact. We may also give you some off-the-cuff technical advice but, let us admit, that is not our forte. We are, as of now, not in a position to give advice on search engine optimisation (SEO), and we do not intend to give half-baked advice.

What are the charges? Are there some hidden / future costs or obligations?
We do not charge for any service given through the Indian Top Blogs such as including a blog in Indian blog rankings or the Directory of Best Indian Blogs. That applies to blog reviews too. We expect that you put the 'reviewed by Indian Top Blogs' icon on your blog.

What does one do to get a blog reviewed by Indian Top Blogs?
1. Do put the small, unobtrusive, reviewed by Indian Top Blogs icon on your blog. You can do this very easily by pasting the code given below in an HTML/ Javascript widget of your blog.  We'll appreciate if you let the icon remain on your blog after the review process is over.
code:

<a href="http://www.indiantopblogs.com/p/get-your-blog-reviewed-by-us.html"><img src="https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-S--WjGqb30M/T9GX8OxvjhI/AAAAAAAABAg/WgdeXib1G3A/s140/blog_review.png" style="border: 0;" /></a>

From February 2013, we have made this step optional. Since we are unable to cope with the rush of requests, we'd not like to bind a blogger with a requirement that becomes unreasonable when his blog is not reviewed for months. We'd welcome the gesture of putting the badge when the blog has been reviewed.
2. Send an email to : kp.nd.2008@gmail.com. In the email, please write the address [URL] of your blog and give a proof that the blog belongs to you. If your email ID is given on the blog, refer to it or tell us an alternate method to confirm your ownership of the blog.
That's all.

How many blogs can one submit?
Only one please! We're unable to cope with the rush.

How much time does the blog review take?
It depends upon the number of review requests we receive.
We give the date of clearance in the bottom right widget on Indian Top Blogs. If you submitted a blog before that date and you have not received a reply from us, we have not received your submission. In that case, please submit the blog again.

3. For showcasing your blog on Indian Top Blogs

Not to make the present post unwieldy, we have given guidelines for submitting a blog for showcase here.
