The importance of directories

Postby onlinexpert » Wed Apr 01, 2009 12:54 pm

Directories are essential to SEO because they provide valuable links. This stems largely from the fact that most directories are regarded as credible by search engines. Web directories are a collection of numerous websites, including .edu and .org domains that add to their credibility. As such, a backlink from such directories adds up as a positive vote to your website. :oops:

In other way we can say that directories are important for link building,

Because its a cheap way of backlinks for your site.

Now a days directories links are not considered as quality links but if you will optimize your submission details well then you can get quality backlinks from directories.

I feel like there are only a select few that are actually quality sites to be added to. Yahoo! Directory, and BOTW......of course DMOZ but if you don't have extremely unique great content for the site you will never get listed. There are alot of other great ways to build link pop. and submitting to 10000000 directories is usually not the answer.

Directories are good link exchange partners. If you are looking for related sites that are related to your website niche, you can visit that particular site and look for the exchange link program.

The importance of directory submissions is mainly on driving traffic into your site and most of the people usually used this method due to its fast and easy results that their site will be listed in a couple of hours of moderation.

Directory submission is very basic work in SEO and I think easiest way to get backlinks.However there are lot of directories are available over Internet and we need to submit links on quality directories.We should focus only on high PR and do follow directories.Directories links help to maintain our website on stable position.

No Doubt, directory is a great source to get backlinks and enhance your position in Google. But beware from spamming directory because it may make a bad effect for your site.
