465 Free SEO Friendly Directories

October 26th, 2006 · 5 Comments

The other week I mentioned the sterling work done by Matt Sawyer in compiling a list of 3000 directories to submit your website to. A very useful list to have, it pretty much covers every directory of note that you’ll need. However one of the drawbacks of Matt’s list is that it didn’t split the directories into any groups so there was no way of knowing if the directories were paid or not, whether a reciprocal link was required, whether you needed to register, etc.. No fault of Matt’s. For goodness sake, he’s compiled a list of 3000 directories for you totally free of charge! What more do you want?

A list of SEO friendly one way link directories split into categories which are all free to subscribe to?

OK. You got it 😀

Info Vilesilencer have a regularly updated list of SEO friendly directories available to download from their site. The 465 directories are categorized so you can apply to all the general directories as well as submitting to niche directories. All of the directories listed are free and don’t require a reciprocal link. The nice people at Info Vilesilencer have even provided you with some very useful submission tips too.

I was in the process of creating a similar resource but, to be honest, there’s no way I could ever better this one. Hats off to all at Info Vilesilencer. We salute you!

    Is there any special techniques that can be used to optimize a wordpress blog on my server for SEO. One issue I see is no way to change the title tags on each page, where it seems to take the blog name for the home page.
    I have several hundred 600+ inbound links.
    I have pinged Technorati manually and used pingoat as well as pingomatic every time I add a new blog.
    There is plenty of content, about 30 articles.
    What else can I do? What else should I do to optimize my blog?

    Hi Rogelio,

    Graywolf, a well known player in the SEO world, has put together a list of excellent WordPress plugins for SEO purposes. I definitely go along with all of his recommendations.

    You might like to also consider the title slug for each of your posts. Make it relevant to the article but also make sure it contains key phrases that people are likely to be searching on.

    My post the other day about automatically pinging sites should help too.

    30 articles isn’t that many and Big G like to see you posting regularly. This encourages the spiders to come back and gobble up all the nice new content.
