Directory submissions used to be a very big part of most search marketers traffic and link building efforts. That’s changed a great deal in the past few years or so but some directories are still important and have been consistent in their quality guidelines and ability to offer link/traffic benefit.
A short list of our favorite directories include:
- Yahoo Directory
- DMOZ (albeit grudgingly – just submit and forget about it)
- Microsoft bCentral Small Business Directory
- BOTW.org (oldest directory on the web)
In fact, it looks like Brian, Greg and the Best of the Web team are at it again with a special Halloween promotion. 15% off on any directory submissions to BOTW.org by October 31st and the chance to win a plasma HDTV.
