Shortly after launching this blog I went on a marathon backlinks building session and successfully submitted SynergyAfrica to 50 free web directories!Since then I’ve regularly updated this list to add more quality sites and remove anything that’s no longer free or has lapsed in quality. (The last update was on Feb 18, 2016).
Sure, directory submissions are very VERY boring, but they’re totally worth doing!And submitting my site to the free directories in this list was actually the first ever active link building exercise I did. I chose to do this first because it can take months to get your submissions approved.
So after scraping the internet for free web directory lists I squeezed 76 potential candidates into an excel spreadsheet. Most of the lists I found from Google searches were either duplicates or very out of date. The most up-to-date web directory list was one I found later just as I was finishing up submitting to the below directories – Top 100 free directory list.
Out of the 76 supposedly “FREE” directory submission sites I tried to submit to from my excel, 13/76 malfunctioned and 13/76 were not free at all! This left me with just 50 that had literally free options.
Here they are : 50 Free Web Directories for Building Backlinks
