Hi all warriors...

We know that Web directories are a very good way of gaining strong one way backlinks to help with your SEO campaign. These directories will push your website up the search results on Google and Yahoo when combined with effective onsite optimisation.

So, i need some list of top paid web directory that charging anywhere from a few dollars.

Please help me..

Thank you

    Dear kocenghabok,

    After witnessing latest Google Algo updates, I would recommend you to focus more on web 2.0 links.

    At this time, only Buying directory links is not an good idea.

    Keep your strategy mix & weigh more on most natural links, focus on quality articles & blogs submission.

      Yes, i also has created web 2.0 and then linking them into my main website.

      But, when i spy my competitor, i see that his site is listed on that paid directory and his website on the top page of google.

      What do you think?

    Directory submission was Old SEO. I would suggest not to waste time with that. They are still a bit effective, but mostly when the site is new.

      I have 2-3 paid submissions per day in one of my paid directories and price is not cheap. It is not only good for SEO, but for exposure. So directories are far from being ineffective in your marketing campaign.

      I don't think that this only helps a NEW site... If you get a good backlink from directories like Yahoo, Dmoz, etc. this will surely help you get a better ranking, no matter if you have your website for 1 or 5 years for example!

    Directories are still effective, but before buying any listing in any directory, make sure it is a pr3, and the page where your link will be placed or category is already indexed in Google.

    Here are the ones I recommend if you really want half way decent directories:

    botw.org
    yahoo directory
    business.com
    hotvsnot.com
    avivadirectory.com
    alivedirectory.com
    joeant.com

    Beyond these, the quality and effectiveness go downhill fast. There is a ton of debate as to whether these add value or not. Also, they aren't cheap...several of the ones on this list are $2-300 bucks...

      Check brenkoweb.com/dir/

      This directory accepts free inputs, but all applications are looked at and only the suitable and valid websites get approved.

      Good list. They are still effective, but it's also a good idea to build at least 10 more and do it slowly!

    Most of the "best web directory" lists out there are outdated and misleading.

    A few weeks ago, a few of us (Aviva Directory, DirJournal, JasmineDirectory and more) decided to update the lists of web directories to avoid promoting spam and link farms.

    Here is the main blog post:

    hxxp://blog.jasminedirectory.com/to-all-owners-of-best-web-directory-lists

    If you need any help updating your list, just let me know, we can provide objective metrics of any type.

    The idea is that many people rely too much on these list and what we all should do, is to provide an updated and comprehensive data based on something real, because otherwise we're just promoting junk.

    EG:

    hxxp://www.avivadirectory.com/strongest-directories (September update)
    hxxp://www.jasminedirectory.com/comparison-between-the-strongest-35-web-directories.html (September update)

    Editorial Discretion (What Matt Cutts talked about a few rimes when he referred to web directories is what some of us took into consideration, as well as the metrics provided by MOZ, at Opensiteexplorer.com).

  • Do not waste your time and money in directory submission as what others already mentioned here. Focus more on providing quality content both on your on page and off page campaign. Since the release of google algo, quantity is now considered outdated. Focus more on quality.

    Though I'm all for quality content, if we talk about link building I think there's still an option to get great links from directories if you do it right. It's just important to have a solid approach to that - like the one suggested in this article 5 Directory Submission Ideas for Local and Global Online Businesses

    Its pretty much a waste of money nowadays. If you're going to spend the money, just pay for advertising or content writing.

    I think that Directories are still good for SEO... You just need to pick up the best directories with good DA and PA.. This is important nowadays.

    Don't bother with directory linking. It won't get you anywhere. We're in 2015, not 2005.

  • Profile picture of the author netanel23
    I can't even believe people still submit to directories or this questions still asked. As the post before me mentioned this is 2015, we're not back in 2005 where any link was good.

    Do not waste time building links, get yourself away from directories unless you are looking for a google penalty.
