    Getting Links To Your Site - I prefer the...

    (Page 5 of 9 )

    I prefer the directories that charge a one time fee as opposed to a yearly fee. I make the purchase and then for the rest of my sites life I can be assured of a high quality link. Most good directory sites are hand edited which the search engines also prefer. Think about it, what would be more valuable, an automatic computer generated review or a hand edited view by a human user? The latter of course!

    Yahoo is undoubtedly the first place to start. A listing in Yahoo will get your site spidered frequently and is the best way to guarantee inclusion in their index. I have compiled a full list of all the directories I use below, with the cost of each. Should you come across any additional ones, drop me an email; I like to keep this list as fresh as possible.

    If you have the budget then these are the best places to start – if you don’t have the budget, beg, borrow or steal but get yourself a few directory listings, you will not regret it!

    Paid directory links will also give your site PR (Page Rank). PR is not what it used to be but many new webmasters – and some experienced – still place a value on a pages PR. You will need this PR when asking for reciprocal links in at least 50% of the people you deal with. As much as you tell them it is not as important as it used to be, some people only want to do link trades with sites that have a PR value above 3.

    Purchase a few directory listings on pages with a decent PR and your sites PR value will go up and you can get cracking on reciprocal link requests.
