    Actually directory in SEO is very old method, on this days this method is not working like before. So if you really want to focus on ranking in search engine then you should use different off page seo methods. Another thing is paid directory can be helpful here.

      still, i believe if you choose proper directory site having good DA PA and proper category, relevant back-links will be great.

        Same thing for paid. Whether you pay for a directory listing or it is free, they are worthless for SEO. In fact, a paid listing SHOULD be nofollowed; otherwise, it is violating Google Webmaster rules and you could be penalized for buying a link.

    There is no such thing as a "must-have" directory link these days. Even the best directories do not help you rank.

    Directory submission is a very old method of SEO and this isn't in trend these days. Your niche related paid directory may be helpful. Focus on other methods.

      Yikes! Yes, all the effort can be useless if all of your efforts are worthless attempts at gaming the algorithm. If you do SEO the right way, algorithm changes will not affect you at all. In fact, they might actually help you.

      This all comes down to whether you are building a real business or whether you are just trying to make a fast buck. SEO is definitely worth it in the long run. In the short term, use paid advertising to make SOME money while you work on content and getting good, real backlinks from sites that DECIDE to link to you.

      Last statistic I saw had paid ads getting somewhere around 3% of all clicks in Google searches. That means organic gets the other 97%. That should tell you whether SEO is worth it or not.

    What other SEO companies besides Rank Pay offer a Guarantee "If you don't rank you don't pay"? Has anyone used Rank Pay before what is your review/experience/results? Any other better SEO companies with similar guarantee?

      Rank Pay looks fairly expensive if you actually achieve your ultimate goal. For a single keyword phrase, you could be paying $550 per month for just that one phrase if it gets into the top 3 (and less per month every month, per keyword, as it climbed to that spot). That probably is worth it for some keyword phrases but keep in mind how much money you spent every month before you got there AND that is is only a single phrase. I know I wouldn't pay a cent per month to be rated in the top 21-30 or even more to be in the top 11-20.

      Also realize that if you already rank for something, you will pay the monthly rate even if they only inch you up one spot in the rankings. That's not worth it if you rank #30 and they get you to #29, for instance.

      Bottom Line: With this service, I'd be darned sure to choose my keywords very carefully. You could be paying $100 - $150/month per keyword phrase for many, many months and never get onto page one if you choose particularly difficult ones. If you choose easier ones, they may not have the traffic to justify paying $550/month for each keyword phrase that makes it into the top 3.

  • I haven't tried submitting my sites to directories. Well, not anymore since the Panda-Penguin arrived. I think you can utilize the time more by creating good content and fixing your onsite SEO. The backlinks will follow as soon as you have good content to start with.

    Dead-sky, directory links are.

    Guest post on top blogs in your niche. This is a fab way to get some serious SEO juice, to befriend top bloggers and to grow your blog through leveraging other folks' audiences.

    A few people have already mentioned that directory listings aren't going to help you rank a blog site, and they are 100% correct.

    But you didn't indicate what type of site you are trying to rank, so I am going to assume that it might be a local business. If that's the case, you'll want to rank in the local pack (Google maps).

    QUALITY business citations from trusted business directories will help your local pack ranking out, and here's all the information you need to get started:

    https://www.brightlocal.com/2018/02/...itation-sites/

    https://www.brightlocal.com/2017/04/...ness-category/

    https://www.brightlocal.com/us-citation-sites/

    My agency does local SEO, and we reference those lists for each new account. I'd also recommend submitting to the data aggregators, but that's basically impossible to do manually these days. You'll need to use Moz, BrightLocal or some other service to take care of those.

    Directory submission is a very old method. Nowdays, try to do Guest posting, Content Markeeting, Forums Marketing. If you have no time for all of these then go for PPC.
