One great way to gain exposure for your blog and to increase its organic search engine ranking is to submit your blog to link directories. Thousands of link directories exist, but not all of them will be worth your time. Most directories are rarely updated or have poor PageRanks and reliability. And then there are the worst offenders: directories that use cheap tricks to quickly acquire high Pageranks in order to sell “reviewing” or “processing” fees for link submissions. Don’t pay for a listing in a web directory based on Pagerank alone. Read reviews and take your time to learn the history and age of the directory first.
Here are the top contenders that are reliable and guaranteed to be worth your time (or money):
Unfortunately, most of the smaller web directories won’t do you any good in increasing Pagerank. Ever since Google updated their algorithm, they killed off most influence from link directories. If you want real results without forking out too much money, look to organic links, social media, etc.
*If you own a beauty-related blog, please feel free to submit it to BOTW Blog Directory > Health > Beauty Blog. I am the editor of that certain category and can ensure that your submission is promptly reviewed. I have no influence in the other categories, but I can add beauty blogs into the directory.
