View Full Version : Directory listings?

From a rankings standpoint, what are the most important directories to get into? Does anyone have a list of the top directories?

Thanks to Sunny for these two links. Dmoz.org is for sure one of the top but this is a good place to start as well. Does anyone else have any more directories?

DMOZ all the way. There's so many dmoz clones out there that just pull the dmoz feed on a weekly basis that you'll end up getting in more than just dmoz. Whether they have any pr or not, it varies, but at least you'll get a bunch of free bl's

Thanks for the great lists.
How important is it to submit to Yahoo and pay the $299?
05-06-2004, 02:13 PM
I personally don't think that it is that important. None of our clients have submitted to Yahoo and we've been getting satisfactory rankings from them lately. Yahoo seems to be very slow in spidering internal pages of the site though, but from what I understand, paying to submit to Yahoo doesn't help that at all.

Does it stand to reason that a link in the Yahoo directory would enhance your Google rankings (like a DMOZ listing)?

Yahoo has immense page reputation and submitting to your category gives you a very relevant backlink. www.seo-guy.com is in yahoo, we paid $299 because we felt it justified, for yourself it really depends on your business

We have some Yahoo listing on some of my ecomm sites. They listed our site on a PR4 page so the link by itself doesn't seem to have too much weight.

e-commando - I've foud directories invaluable in low dough projects.
http://www.isedb.com/ a directory of directories so to speak.
Deleted the list as I found this elsewhere.
and it sure takes up alot less space.

Thanks Dilligaf for that huge list.
I noticed that the search results in many of these directories return pages with 0 PageRank (it seems these pages are generated on the fly). Are these links still useful? I've heard that unless a link page has a PR of 4, it doesn't help your PR. So do these types of links add any value from a SEO standpoint (besides that obvious exposure from veiwers using the directory itself)?

George, I can just share my opininion. Any free one way link (again, we're talking low budget) is worth a couple of minutes to submit. Secondly PR will change over time and if it's free what the ..... The last one I did has posted 5 BL's on Google from those directory submissions.
05-12-2004, 08:28 AM
DO you care to share which directories showed in the BL's?
05-12-2004, 08:46 AM
I know somuch.com showed 3 right away, but I didn't always submit the same pages so I'd have to check each page. Is there any way to do BL's site-wide in Google?
05-13-2004, 01:24 PM
On some of the directories you don't get a backlink because they use a jumplink/redirect links.
05-14-2004, 10:26 AM
A lot of those jump and cgi scripts are being read now. The signatures over at www.ozzu.com for instance used to not pass PR or give backlinks and now they do
05-14-2004, 01:20 PM
How can I write the code to pass PR from a jump script?
Can a straight redirect do it?
05-14-2004, 01:22 PM
It's no trick. Google's just getting smarter.

You might want to consider submitting to the Kabooli Directory
It is a very new directory, but we have been working very hard to get BL's. Our site has been deep crawled by google and google's cache of this page is updated daily. All the URL's are static and spider friendly. As another poster mentioned, PR should increase over time if you get onboard early.
