Are you looking for a way to promote your website and get your site on the first page of Google?

Below, you will find a list of my favorite free directories. They are all sites that I use , so I know they are good.

You can improve search engine visibility by submitting your site to directories and creating a page on their site with a link back to yours, and text on the page that is relevant to the search terms you want to rank for.

The more links on other websites there are that point back to your website, the more google will trust your site and in turn they will rank it higher.

Without links to your site google won't trust it and no one will find it. Therefore, the more back-links you have, the better.

Submitting your website to quality directories is therefore a great way to improve your visibility and drive traffic to your site.

Yahoo directory and Moz directory were the oldest and biggest. Yahoo charged 300 a year for a listing and Moz was free but they are both gone now.

The older and more established directory sites may charge money for a listing but there are a lot of directory sites the offer free links.

Search engines also look at the other text on a page where links to your site appear to decide what keywords your site is relevant for.

I don't like to pay for links because you never know how long the site will be around. Some of the paid directories charge a one time fee, however some charge an annual fee.

This is the list of my favorite free directories.
