Placing your link in major directories is still by far one of the best ways to not only increase ranking in the search engines but also obtain targeted traffic to your site.
When deciding on which directories to place links, authority directories should be your target whether it be local directories, major business directories or themed business specific directories.
Here is a quick list of items that should be considered when looking to place a link on directories.
- Authority within market place
- Theme – by industry or country inbound links – number and quality
- Yahoo listed
- Dmoz listed
- Links allowed – number
- Internal page allowed
- Directory pages cached by major search engines
Rules when linking…
1. Link to the same subject websites or at least within your larger business field/area.
2. Higher page rank sites best on the index page…. even better if higher on the links page.
3. Do not use link farm services. Link metro doesnâ€™t quite fall in this category all saying this be choosey with whom
you link to.
4. Ranking for Goggle = quality over quantity. Ranking for Yahoo & Msn = quality & quantity.
5. Do not link to bad neighborhoods.Read More

What a load of rot.
Reciprocal linking with themed, on topic and useful sites that match your content is…
- Great for your visitors.
- And yes… still good for pushing you up in the SE’s.
And it will always be that way.Read More
