One of the easiest ways to build one way links back to your site is with Web Directory submissions. In this post I am just going to discuss free directory submissions. Paid directories have their place too, but that’s something I’ll discuss later.
There are basically three methods to submit to free web directories. Those methods are fully automatic, semi automatic, and manual.
Automatic directory submissions should be avoided at all costs. Why? Because spam bots and link spammers try to post at many of the sites that have no CAPTCHA. There is no benefit to being listed on sites that are potentially “bad neighborhoods” filled with spammy links.
