Add Your URL to SEO Friendly Directories FREE
September 6, 2007
Backlinks are a huge part of being successful when you’re a blogger. The more links you have, the higher you rank and the better PageRank you get. So if you haven’t been working extremely hard on gaining backlinks and you’ve just been going with the flow and waiting for the links to come to you, then all I have to say is, you’d better start.
AddURL.nu is a great site that currently contains close to a thousand “100% SEO friendly, free, non-redirect, non-reciprocal, and general” directories. Whenever you submit to one of these directories that AddURL lists, that’s another backlink gained. If you submitted to all of the directories, then you’d have nearly a thousand extra backlinks.
But of course, manually submitting to each of those directories yourself would take a while. If you don’t have the time but you’ve got the money, AddURL.nu’s owner charges $290 and he will hand submit your site or blog to every single directory listed. You can use four different titles and two different descriptions. It’s important to not just work on one keyword, but several (more on this later). But of course, most bloggers don’t have the money. But if you don’t, that’s okay. Still do try to submit to as many directories as you can whenever you have the free time.
Whenever you enter in your information to submit to the directory, under site title don’t enter your blog’s name – enter its keywords. For example, this blog is called Super Blogging. But when I submit to directories, I target my keywords. Under the title I use things like ‘Make Money Blogging’, ‘Free Blogging Tips’, etc. That’s right, on different directories I use more than one. Don’t just submit the same title every time – try to evenly spread out submitting under around four different keywords. Varied anchor text is important.
And usually directories offer your link to be featured, free, or reciprocal. Never buy a featured link, and don’t link back to them for a link (which is reciprocal). Instead, just take the free one. All the directories can be, and are, FREE.
Building links isn’t easy, unless you cheat and do one of those viral trains. I made the mistake of doing one, and I hate myself for it. Don’t get tangled up in one of those. Instead, do one of the best things you can do for getting backlinks to your blog and go with AddURL.nu. I promise you that if you stick to submitting to all the listed directories, not a minute of your time will be wasted. Every single link is worth it.
