Free High Ranking Directories for SEO

Boost your Website's PR with Directory Submissions

To optimize your website to rank highly in search, you need two things: fresh, quality content and great backlinks.

Interesting and useful content will create traffic and a low bounce rate, greatly improving your ranking. Yet great content is often not enough on its own. You'll also need great backlinks.

An excellent way to get these great backlinks is to submit your site to high ranking, quality directories. While paid directories like Best of the Web and Business.com are among the best directories, they are not within everyone's budget. So below you'll find several high ranking free directories. Since the page rank of a site is no longer information Google shares with us, I'm using Majestic Trust Flow as an indicator of ranking.

But a word of caution, while high ranking directories will give you a boost in search results, spammy directories or automated submission to hundreds or thousands of directories will set you back on Google and other search engines, especially after the latest Penguin updates.

The best free directory is dmoz which you'll find in the links below, along with some good to excellent other directories to give you a headstart.

It's better for your SEO if you don't have a reciprocal link, so none of these require one.
