49 Free Web Directories for Building Backlinks

admin | January 22, 2017 | SEO,Uncategorized

Shortly after launching this blog I went on a marathon backlinks building session and successfully submitted http://www.clambr.com to 49 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 June 24, 2014).

Sure, directory submissions are very VERY boring, but they’re totally worth doing!

And submitting clambr.com 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Most of the lists I found from Google searches were either duplicates or very out of date.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, 14/76 malfunctioned and 13/76 were not free at all! This left me with just 49 that had literally free options. Here they are:

UPDATE: There are now 62 free directories in the list!

I hope this list is helpful to your own backlink building efforts :)

IMPORTANT UPDATE: This was one of the first ever posts I published on this blog. The reason you found it on Google is because since then this blog has grown to become an authority site on link building and now ranks for a number of highly competitive keywords in the SEO niche:

The secret to my success has been down to using BuzzStream and Ahrefs, which were voted the best tools for link building by 55 SEO experts here.

I use Ahrefs to find out who’s linking to my competitors and BuzzStream to reach out to the webmasters and land links on the same pages!
