Are you looking for the best list of directories where you could submit your site for building links and ranking high in SERPs?

If indeed you are, this is the place to be!

Creation of a business website needs the investment of both time and money. But all this effort will go to waste if your site can’t rank well. You can increase the visibility of your site through an array of search engine optimization techniques. Adding your site’s link to online directories is the first step you should take in boosting link popularity and, therefore, search engine rankings.

Now that you have this list of best directories by your side, what’s the plan? First of all, create a list of all those keywords for which you are looking to rank your site. If you already have it figured out, you are all set to move ahead.

Open the directory link in your browser, and navigate to the category that is a best match for your site. If you can’t find an exact match, pick the closest one. Then, look for the ‘Submit URL’ link. One good piece of advice is to use browsers like Firefox or Chrome. This will help you save the entered information, and therefore, speeds up the process of submission to directories for you.

And yes, don’t forget to interchange your titles and descriptions so that your submissions don’t look like spam. Little variations will lend uniqueness to your site information, thereby increasing your chances to rank better.

Last but definitely not the least, use an email address that matches your domain name so that your listing looks credible.

Happy link building 2018!
