List of Directory Submission Sites That Google Likes

By Tom Forrest
List of Directory Submission Sites.
List of directories that Google likes and that follow Google Guidelines.

Google has cracked down on web directories that violate Google guidelines.  You should not place your website on any free and low quality directories or websites, you need fewer directory listings with better quality in order to be successful with Google and Bing. Please read the following new article about effective SEO Link Building to learn more.

So I decided I should give people a list of Internet directories that Google thinks are valid and that if you obtained a listing from these directories it would help you with direct traffic generation and also as a "good" backlink as far as Google is concerned. The Directories below are valuable worldwide and businesses from all countries should consider submitting their website to these top quality Directories.

Please see comments below from Matt Cutts of Google on what to consider when submitting to a Directory.
I see many articles that give incorrect SEO information and promote "free directory sites" (low quality), and it is important to study what Google has previously stated. Please understand that Google has penalized many sites for not following the Google guidelines.

When considering submitting to a directory, I’d ask questions like:
- Does the directory reject urls?
If every url passes a review, the directory gets closer to just a list of links or a free-for-all link site.
- What is the quality of urls in the directory?
Suppose a site rejects 25% of submissions, but the urls that are accepted/listed are still quite low-quality or spammy. That doesn’t speak well to the quality of the directory.
- If there is a fee, what’s the purpose of the fee?
For a high-quality directory, the fee is primarily for the time/effort for someone to do a genuine evaluation of a url.

SEO Link Building Service

SEO Link Building Service and Strategies
We receive thousands of phone calls, emails, link building questions and listing requests every year about SEO and link building techniques. Eighty percent or more of the people contacting us have terribly wrong ideas about what works and what is important for outstanding results in the major search engines. Below are details, samples, and history of people contacting us with their requirements. Hopefully, you will find useful SEO information that will help your company grow and increase your profits.

Many people phone our company saying, "I need low cost SEO, low quality backlinks, and tons of cheap links."

I respond, "Why?".... They say, "I want to out rank my competitors."
They think it is a pure numbers game, all links are equal and you get more and you win.  This is the wrong link building strategy, and these "cheap low quality techniques" will cause your website to be penalized by Google.

These people want fast outstanding results; they want to be #1 for competitive keyword phrases in 1-5 months.  Most people still do not understand that Google has penalized almost all of these cheap, crappy links and many people still do not even realize to vary their anchor text.  So the fastest way to be penalized by Google is to put up 1000+ low quality links on crappy websites and low quality Directories. 
Important Note: "If every url passes a review, the directory gets closer to just a list of links or a free-for-all link site." - Matt Cutts of Google

Then use the exact same anchor text for all these poor quality backlinks. People who do this might as well just email Google and say "please penalize my site, I am a dumb-ass and I deserve to be penalized."

You need and want to be on Top Quality Sites and Directories.

CBS News and PBS Fire Charlie Rose following accusations of sexual harassment

I would have never guessed that eight women would accuse Charlie Rose of sexual harassment.
It just proves that you can never be 100% sure about any person, even people you may respect.

Self Driving Cars with No Human in the front seat are Now in Chandler, AZ

Self Driving Cars are now in Chandler, AZ. 


Please be Careful, as you Never Know who may be recording or filming you

I always warn people to be careful about what they do in public as you never know who may be filming or recording you.
I feel sorry for the women in this Uber recording as she was drunk and that is a big part of when and why people should use Uber.
Frankly I do not think she should have been fired, her boss could have just given her a 1-2 month suspension without pay.

How our Smartphone and Computer Screens are Harming our Daily Lives and Robbing us of Valuable Personal Time

Below is an excellent video presentation that discusses important technology and lifestyle topics that I have rarely thought about until I watched this video. I only use my Smartphone as a phone and I do not text or tweet, I only use emails. I never bring my smartphone to any meals, breakfast, lunch or dinner. If I am out to dinner, I leave my smartphone in my car.
Now my gut instinctual knowledge is being proven correct again by this Professor.
I knew what he is saying, yet I could not explain it as well as he does. Every person that watches device "screens" should watch this video.

Artificial Intelligence and Computer Automation are moving forward Quickly, Amazon, Uber, Google, Ford, Audi, and Lyft, etc.

All the talk about artificial intelligence and computer automation is not just talk, it is really happening and will move forward quickly. Amazon is going to open 2000 stores that do not need any cashiers and checkout people.
See the video below for more details.

Automated driver-less cars and trucks are happening and several companies have successful tests already completed. Uber has been testing driver-less cars for over a year in USA cites.
The taxi drivers in Paris France were burning down the streets because Uber was taking their jobs. Soon (in the next few years) there will not be jobs for any drivers, not even Uber drivers.
How will this affect millions of workers worldwide, and society in general?

Crimea: Three years after annexation, and Why the USA should accept this. The Crimea people want to be Russian Citizens

This is a good video that explains why the USA should drop all protests and sanctions against Russia for the take over of Crimea. Most of the people living in Crimea consider themselves to be Russians and the people want to be part of Russia, not the Ukraine.

SEOWA.com has a New BackLinkChecker, use it on an as needed basis ...

We have a new Backlink Checker in beta test. It seems to be working fine, however it is a new tool in our bag of SEO tools.
We have our other useful SEO tools as part of a $29 per year annual subscription.



After you sign up you can use our high quality backlink checker and be charged by usage. Backlink checkers are very expensive to develop and maintain, so if you can afford it buy a monthly subscription to other good backlink checkers that is great. 
For many people the monthly cost is too expensive and they want to run a backlink report once a month or once every 2-months.
This is where our backlink checker is very beneficial.
We are also developing a Stand Alone version of our Backlink Checker, however it will cost more to use than if you are a subscriber to SEOWA.com 



You should check your websites backlinks at least once a month.
Below is a Backlink Report for Boeing.com

How Safe Are Password Managers?

This video is very funny and makes an important point.


Based on all the past problems Sony has faced with hackers and the fact that Sony did not do a good job of protecting passwords.  Furthermore with the general public concerned about the US government spying on citizens I thought it would be important to explain why everyone should be using an Online Password Manager for business, personal, SEO and marketing. No one has your passwords except you. We can not see or retrieve them because they are stored in a secure military 256k encrypted vault in the cloud.

The biology of our best and worst selves | Robert Sapolsky - Why People can be Good and Evil?


SEO Articles on GotoTom2 and Why You want to use the GotoTom2 search box

If you want to see many interesting and useful SEO articles it is important to use the Blogger search box.
Why?

Because Google unfairly censors SEO expert articles and makes it difficult for people to find them on the Google search engine.
In a strange way it is a compliment that Google is so concerned about hiding and censoring what top SEO experts write, e.g. not everyone is worthy of being unfairly censored by Google. You have to be a super SEO expert or Google will not bother to hide and censor your content on the Google search engine.


So the concept Google currently has which is at least partially fair, Google may unfairly censor an authors content in the Google search engine, however they should never censor content that is on a search which is internal to the publishers Blogger website. I believe I helped force Google into their current "unfair censorship" policies. Previously if Google unfairly censored your content from the Google search engine, it also blocked the same content on a private Blogger site search, it took Google over six months to fix this, and since about 1-17-17 you can search on a Blogger (blogspot) and find content that may be unfairly censored on the Google search engine.
You can easily prove what I am saying just by comparing the internal search results of my GotoTom2 blog to the search results of the Google search engine, it is clear how Google unfairly censors some authors in multiple different ways.

Please click on the following link and then try to find the exact same content on the Google search engine.


SEO Articles on this Blog

Specific Google search example


My unhappiness with Google's unfair censorship can be seen by searching for Google censorship on this blog.
I have always thought it is stupid, unethical and evil for Google to unfairly censor some authors and for Google to be a bully and punish innocent authors for standing up and ignoring Google's evil bully tactics and methods. For example Google has unfairly penalized my 7meg.net for over a year just to send me a message. My message back to Google is that I am documenting every evil and unethical thing Google does for the general public to see and hopefully the Federal Trade Commission will punish Google for their evil, bully behavior and put new tougher regulations on Google to prevent abuse as in the case of 7meg.net .

5 Fun Things to Do in Malibu, California: Travel Vlog

You might see a mountain side collapse in Malibu, CA






Why Links Are So Important to the Internet

I Did Not Invent the Internet, However the Man Who Did Links to My Blog

History of the Internet and Leonard Kleinrock one of the Fathers of the Internet

Wikipedia should mention that Claude Shannon was one of the greatest engineers of all time and was also the main Professor of Leonard Kleinrock when he was a student at MIT. At the age of 21-years old, Claude Shannon invented modern Digital Circuit Design Theory which lead to the computer development that has impacted our world in a gigantic way.


I will show you an example of "good merit based" link building that Google likes.
About the best backlink you could obtain in the software, Internet and SEO industry would be a link from a prestigious university, from a top expert and a famous award winning distinguished person, e.g. the father of the Internet.

Please click here, then click in the #1 video listed on the webpage and see where it links you to.


The following is an excellent article and basic overview of links and why they are so important to the web.
"As an emerging industry, SEO is a field ripe for new college graduates ... The first thing a new SEO must learn is how Google operates. This means learning the value of links in search..."

One small correction I would make to Cory's article is that powerful backlinks are still by far the most important factor in the Google algorithms and they will continue to be because there is science behind this.

The reason search engines will most likely never change this is that this methodology works great, and no other technique works better. Why Do you think Google named it PageRank?
The Wikipedia article for PageRank is wrong and defective just like some of the other Wikipedia articles. However, the editors at Wikipedia did an excellent job on "the history of the Internet". Wikipedia should let me write the article about Google PageRank since I know more about this topic than the current Wikipedia editors do.

The people that tell you links are not important any longer are complete Dumb-asses and you should never listen to them.
I am not sure how I can make this point any clearer.
