Website Directory Gold: The Top 250 Website Directories

The world of SEO strategy and ranking factors is forever changing. What was popular today may not be popular tomorrow. Certainly what we knew even a few months ago has been challenged by what we’ve learned of the ranking algorithms since then. That said, one thing that has continually proved beneficial in getting a website ranked are website directories. For that reason, I thought I would share with you a rather comprehensive list of valuable website directories. You can also download my handy link building tracking sheet that will help you track your submission and link building efforts.

If you are looking for link building opportunities outside of the directories below, definitely check out SEOMoz’s Link Acquisition Assistant! Awesome tool!

Now on with the directories! If you have any to add simply leave in the comments and I’ll be sure to append to the list!
