10 Free Directories to Submit Your Website To
Directories and SEO
Offsite Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is mostly about getting as many backlinks to your website as possible. It is also the key to getting your hub-page ranked higher, or generating more traffic to your blog. If you're doing internet business, then backlink-building is necessarily something that you need to pay attention to, and potentially invest in.
There has been some debate lately about whether it is still a good idea to submit websites to directories (websites that specifically hold links for different websites). The root of this issue is caused by the ubiquity of directories on the web - it has become easier and easier to make such directories. I firmly believe that submitting your website to directories is still a great idea, and necessary for most webmasters. However, it is important that you submit your site to the right directories - those that already have many links to them (and therefore are listed in Google, and have a page rank).
In this hub, I am going to list some free directories that I would use, and that are proven to give results in online marketing.
My Top 10 Free Directory List
Page Rank 4
Gain Web (Reciprocal Optional, SEO-Optimized)
9 Sites (No Reciprocal, Long Wait)
Info Listings (No Reciprocal, Long Wait)
Page Rank 3
VIP DIG (Reciprocal Optional, Long Wait)
TXT Purelinks (No Reciprocal)
Page Rank 2
Link and Web (Reciprocal Link Required, Quick Approval)
PyThoughts Web Directory (No Reciprocal, Quick Approval, SEO-Optimized)
Linksplore Web Directory (Reciprocal, Long Wait)
Page Rank 1
SEO Free Links (No Reciprocal)
A3 Directory (No Reciprocal)
While creating this review, I personally submitted a new blog of mine to all of these directories to make sure that I had all of the information correct. There are other, higher ranked directories, such as Yahoo Directory, but these literally take months if not years to get accepted into. These directories will all likely accept your listing within a few weeks at most.
Good luck with your online promotion, and feel free to add your top directories here in the comments!
