Today, I am posting something which some SEO things is useless this days, but this works as. Slow but Steady.
We can find many quality directories out there that do stick to Google's guidelines, and remains a sound part of any link building strategy.
Do you think paying to be listed somehow performs negative effect ? I don't think so. And apparently neither does Google think so.
There has been a lot of misdirected criticism of directories over the past few months. Sure, there are some directories which cracks the rules, but that is true of many sites, regardless of format.
The directory structure is no more a marker of spam than the blog format. Many directories do make a point of conforming to Google's guidelines, and there are number of sites providing a list of recommendations.
So follow the guidelines and the key to success is submit in the quality directories. Results will be long term.
