About Website Directories

Website Directories are websites that list, link, and organize other websites by category and sub-category. Most Website Directories allow for webmasters to suggest a website to be listed for free or pay for a guaranteed listing or expedited review. Web directories are no longer as popular as they once were and typically no longer provide much direct traffic, however they can be a beneficial source of backlinks. In order for a Web Directory link to be beneficial for SEO purposes it must not use a no-follow attribute or be redirected. In most cases the directory listing title is the anchor text (keywords targeted for SEO purposes). There are thousands of General Website Directories online and there are also countless specific niche or regional directories online, however there are only a handful of authority directories like DMOZ that are still very beneficial to be listed on. While Directory Submission Software or Directory Submission Services can make bulk directory submissions much easier, only manual submissions should be done on the more important Website Directories to increase the chances of getting listed. Listed below for user reviews and comparison are the top General Website Directories for link value and potential traffic. Specific niche marketing Directories listed elsewhere on this site are Affiliate Program Directories, Article Directories, Local Search Directories, and Shopping Comparison Directories.
