A quick way to increase your website significance to the ‘eyes’ of Google, is to submit your website in high quality directories. If you have an acceptable quality website, they may enlist your website link. This link (backlink) from high quality (high domain authority) directories will be ‘read’ by google as a quality link which will in turn increase your search engine ranking position and therefore traffic. Some people use also these directories to find what they are looking which might mean a few extra visits. The submission to each directory takes just a few minutes.
The approval might take even months unless you use their reciprocal link instead of free submission or you may need to pay. To add their reciprocal link, use ‘Head and Footer Scripts Inserter‘ WordPress plugin, go in it’s settings page, and add them in the ‘Footer Section’. While registering with these directories, write down all your login details per directory (directory site, your email and password login).
The below directories are sorted by Domain Authority. To check current status of their Domain/Page Authority you can use Google Chrome addon ‘MozBar’ or the Firefox addon ‘RDS bar’.
