Many SEO or Digital Marketing Agencies link build purely through placing traditional links on blogs or forums. At FDC we take a more modern approach and target industry specific Directories which are generally ranked higher and have a better quality rating than other sources.

Our category by category approach means we can place your website into its specific domain and relevant field of interest, which not only increases your visibility for targeted visitors, but also builds you high quality backlinks that originate from trusted sources.

Directories also give your website some great Kudos or “Link Juice” as its better known in the SEO domain. Link Juice is the main factor that will help in your Search Engine Rankings. The more Link juice you have, the better chances your website has of reaching a higher ranking position.

There are many opinions on how best to build links through Directories. Some SEO Agencies or individuals choose to list websites in all generic Directories; we believe this dilutes the overall effort, hence why we only link build in specific Search and Industry specific directories.

These include;

  • Yell
  • Freeindex
  • Yelp
  • Touch Local
  • DMOZ
  • Manta and many more...

Many good directories are actively maintained by admins or site owners. Depending on the quality of your website or content, site admins and owners will either accept or decline your entry in to their index. This way, you can be assured that your website is being listed into a maintained, looked after directory. This in turn means you have a better quality back link.

We use the following quality checks to decide whether your website should be included in a directory or not:

  • Does the directory have plenty of back links from authoritative sites?
  • Does the directory reflect the type of website we aim to submit in quality and content?
  • Does the directory look after its index? i.e. Does it remove old sites and arrange by order or relevancy
  • Does the directory have a clear editorial and policy guide?
  • Does the directory fully allow us to describe and document your website?

At FDC we offer a complete manual submission service in which we not only include your URL into Directories, but also develop and maintain active link building strategies for your website.

We also link build via;

  • Article Submissions
  • Social Bookmarking
  • Blogging
  • Press Releases
