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, Yahoo 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 all countries should consider submitting their website to these top quality Directories.
Comments from Matt Cutts of Google on what to consider when submitting to a Directory.
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.
