There is definately a place for web directories, but try to only submit to ones that will bring relevant traffic to your web site. Also check the directories other listings - if it is full of spammy sites than avoid it!
Really? And what decade did you scrape this list from, to include a "Link Wheel" as a recommended off-page strategy?Originally Posted by jeffreydominic
Honestly, "Jeff", just copying a list from some other website and posting it here isn't going to get you any credibility.
Links can give a negative.
Directories have been hit in the past for selling links.
In the past directories haven't passed much juice.
My question is not if they are worth the time but if you could get the opposite affect from what you are looking for. You spend the week submitting to directories only to see your ranking drop.
Ya I hear ya I guess, the thing is that I (I haven't for a long while now) used software to automate everything so it did it all for me in the background AND the process, for each website took less than an hour or so and I did it once a week. Doing so worked for me, and when I say worked, I mean, I did see increases in rankings and no drops.
Ofcourse,it is very hard to submit the same article into different article directory site,but it is praticable if you have an article spinner to generate different versions of unique article from this seed article.But these kinds of articles are relatively low quality
Article directory site just accept unique article,or not this type of sites are also not worth for your submitting as it will be very low quality.
If you indeed have enough artilce directory sites, you could try the best spinner to spin articles from this article,then submit them,but you also had better review and correct the unavoidable errors of grammar and sentence structure hidden in the spun articles.
