With search engine optimization and search results positions so important, why should you still bother with search directories?
There’s a simple answer to this, and surprisingly, it’s for the exact same reason as SEO strategies. By having your website listed in, say, 100 of the top search directories you can achieve a massive boost to your search results position.
Think about it – if you were to take the top 100 search directories, each of which probably have a Google Page Rank of 4 or more, and an Alexia rating under 100,000, and have your site listed – what a boost to your external linking!
Imagine 100 of the internet’s highest ranked websites all linking to your site. That’s gold for anyone trying to achieve good search engine positioning.
