How to add a site to the Religious Kibbutzim Project

The Religious Kibbutzim (RK) is a web directory of Internet resources. A web directory is something akin to a huge reference library. The directory is hierarchically arranged by subject from broad to specific.  The RK is maintained by community editors who evaluate sites for inclusion in the directory. They are our experts, and all submissions are subject to editor evaluation. 

We care a great deal about the quality of the RK.  We aren't a search engine and pride ourselves on being highly selective. We don't accept all sites, so please don't take it personally should your site not be accepted. Our goal is to make the directory as useful as possible for our users, not to have the directory include all (or even most) of the sites that could possibly be listed or serve as a promotional tool for the entities listed.

To keep the RK running smoothly and to assist us in exercising our editorial discretion, we have set up policies for submitting sites for our consideration.  We may reject, delete, or edit submissions that violate these policies or that we otherwise believe, in our sole discretion, should not be included in the directory. We may also reject, delete, or block other sites that we believe to be associated with a user who has violated these policies. 

You should take a few moments to understand these policies and the steps to submit a site before you begin.  Failure to understand and follow these instructions generally will result in the rejection of a submission. 

Step One

Determine whether a site is appropriate for submission to the RK:
  • Do not submit mirror sites. Mirror sites are sites that contain identical content, but have altogether different URLs. 
  • Do not submit URLs that contain only the same or similar content as other sites you may have listed in the directory.  Sites with overlapping and repetitive content are not helpful to users of the directory.  Multiple submissions of the same or related sites may result in the exclusion and/or deletion of those and all affiliated sites. 
  • Do not disguise your submission and submit the same URL more than once.  
  • Do not submit any site with an address that redirects to another address.
  • The RK has a policy against the inclusion of sites with illegal content. Examples of illegal material include child pornography; libel; material that infringes any intellectual property right; and material that specifically advocates, solicits or abets illegal activity (such as fraud or violence). 
  • Do not submit sites "under construction." Wait until a site is complete before submitting it. Sites that are incomplete, contain "Under Construction" notices, or contain broken graphics or links aren't good candidates for the directory. 
  • Submit pornographic sites to the appropriate category under Adult. 
  • Submit non-English sites to the appropriate category under World. 
  • Don't submit sites consisting largely of affiliate links.

Step Two

Do a quick search in the directory at yaryard.tripod.com (the home of the RK) to be sure your site isn't already listed. This saves everyone time. 

Step Three

Identify the single best category for your site.  The RK 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.

Step Four

Once you've selected the best category for your site, go directly to that category on yaryard.tripod.com and then mail the site to yaryard@hotmail.com.  Descriptions of sites should describe the content of the site concisely and accurately.  They should not be promotional in nature. Submitting a promotional description rather than an objective, well written description may significantly delay your site from being listed or prevent your site from being listed at all.

The RK team welcomes comments and feedback about the directory generally.  Please let us know what you think, and how we can improve the service. 
Thanks!
