öWe feel that number of myths around the industry when it comes to directory submissions and SEO. We see number of people who still say directory submissions have nothing to do with improving search ranks. Hence we thought we would give a perspective of how this works and how this cannot work.

When it comes to directory submissions, most of the people consider spam directories – directories full of links and no value to the end user. While there are tons and tons of such directories out in the industry, we can also see number of high page rank and high quality directories that can really add value to your website.

From our experience we see directory submission as two parts. One submitting to hundreds of thousands of spam directories where you website will be one in thousands along with sites that have scrapped content and poor link profile. The second way of doing this is to submit to limited number of directories that does not accept all links submitted to them. These websites have good editorial guidelines that make it clear that the directory owner really care for their users.

We think that the second strategy is going to more powerful and useful from an SEO standpoint. It makes no sense for us to submit to thousands of directories. Rather it is better to submit to limited number of high quality directories. Since quality directories have the credibility and authority in the eyes of search engines they will definitely pass the link vote thereby improving your search rank. There are multiple ways to identify a good credible directory which we will discuss in next article.

Just to summarize, make sure not to submit to thousands of free directories that are filled with spam websites. Instead collect directories that are meaningful and submit to them. The numbers may be less, but this strategy is so powerful. In our study we feel that paid directories are more quality than free directories as the admin spend time in developing their website and simple does not accept any website.
