Getting directory links is usually seen as a tiresome process of getting low quality inlinks. Here we will show you how to gather the most important directory backlinks for your site quickly.
First of all, this article assumes you are interested in getting on top of Google with your most important keywords, which means you are not primarily interested about the pagerank of your site (the difference is huge with regard to what strategy to employ).
Make a list of your most important search keywords or phrases as they would be typed into Google. The list should be made up of at least 20 keywords and phrases. Sort your keywords after importance, if your list consist of 20 keywords put the number 20 next to your most important keyword, 19 on the second most important keyword and so on.
Make a spreadsheet looking like:
Leave first field empty Keyword 1 Keyword 2 Keyword 3 and so on …
Now the hard work start. Type your most important word into Google. Now look through the search list, the first directory that come up you write down in the spreadsheet and give the point 10 (let’s say we are looking for at least 10 directories). The second directory that come up you also type down and give the point 9, the third 8 and so on. Now you make the same for your second most important keyword and continue down the list.
What you do now is that you sum up all the points for every directory by taking the point of the directory times the weight of the keyword, you then sum these points up for every directory. Now you have your list of most important directories for exactly your site. If you have no budget you will have to skip all the directories requiring payment, if you do have a budget I would recommend paying the top directories as long as you can afford it.
