Two extremely popular and important Internet directories are DMOZ and Yahoo! Unlike Google, that is a search engine, directories organize links under various categories and sub-categories. Due to all the hype that search engines get most web masters fail to recognize the significance of submitting their links to Internet directories.
Here’s a quick summary of the benefits of submitting your links to web directories:
- Directory submissions give you one-way links
Search engines give importance to the number of inbound links to your site and from web directories you get one-way inbound links. Web directories, while including your links, don’t expect you to put their link on your website. Search engines discourage link-exchange tactics but they consider one-way inbound links with high regard.
- Directory submissions allow the anchor text of your choice
When we submit your links to web directories they allow you to enter a site title (site title is different from the URL) that can contain your keywords. This generates SEO anchor text for you and this helps you improve your search engine rankings.
- Directory submissions are mostly free
Yes, you don’t have to pay for most of the web directory submissions. There are some highly professional web directories that charge a high premium for adding your links but their number is minuscule compared to free directories. However in this task we will be adding your site to "Freemium" directories only, our current list has more then 50+ directories both local and worldwide.
- Directory submissions send you targeted traffic
By submitting your website to directories you leave a "footprint" of your website or as it is commonly known as an anchor or a hyperlink that leads to your website, so when other people go to the directory and search for your business niche / category, there is a high chance of visiting your website.
