Using Directory Links for your Company’s Advantage

Posted: May 24, 2011 in Growing your Business

There has been a discussion about the importance of human edited web directory and web directory links. These can be a bit outdated because they used to be great way to generate many backlinks in a short period of time. But since Google constantly change their algorithms and now give more emphasis on quality over quantity, these web directory links can turn into garbage. But does this mean that you shouldn’t use this strategy at all? There are still many directories that rank high in Google and have a good backlinking power. And having a hundred of these links will not hurt your site.

Ways to get Web Directory Links Fast

  • Compile a list and submit it yourself. Submitting links to online directories may take awhile but is definitely worth your time.  Perhaps the best thing about doing this task manually is that you get to select which directories you would like to submit to. This is a good way for you to ensure that you are submitting to credible and useful directories that Google recognizes. Choose the best directories where you can generate directory links from. 
  • Utilize an automatic tool. There are services that will allow you to submit links to directories in no time. Along with these good links, you may get some garbage links as well.
  • Hire professional services to get you these links. There are services available today that will link your site to thousands of directories and will also get you directory links fast and easy. The only issue with this type of service is that you don’t want to build links in a way that appears unnatural. Some of these services will only generate several submissions in a day, so this is probably the best way to go.

If you aren’t using these links yet, then maybe you should start with the top directories. The benefits will always outweigh the cost of getting these links especially with your Google ranking. They may not be as helpful as they used to, but they can still give you that certain search engine ranking boost you need.
