Blog Directory Submissions

Top Blog Directories List to Submit Your Blog To

This post is part 3 of the Traffic Action Plan, see part 1 here: –

Getting Website Traffic

and part 2 here: –

Submitting Articles For Traffic

This is another “old school” and “un-sexy” method that gets overlooked by most people now for getting traffic to new websites.

One of the most important things to remember when getting new backlinks to a fresh new website to help get it to rank well in the search engine results is to use a VARIETY of backlink building tactics so that the links are not all coming from one source or type of source. Mixing in some blog directory links is an easy way of ensuring this, but you will also discover you actually get visitors from some of these blog directories, as well as the valuable backlinks.

The directories below are specifically fro Blogs, if your site is not a blog then the best way to approach directory submissions is to pick up a simple [and cheap] piece of software that will automate the whole process for you, I’ve recommend taking a look at the one here: –

DirectoryBot

The first three blog directories you should always submit any new blog to are: –

Technorati.com
MyBlogLog.com
BlogCatalog.com

these are high quality authority sites that also have a “community” aspect to them that can end up bringing your blog some highly targeted traffic.

I’ve previously made videos covering how to set up your blog on each of these sites which you can watch here:-

Video #37. Adding BlogCatalog : 7.06 Mins

Video #38. Adding Technorati : 7.3 Mins

There’s another 20+ Blog directories that are worth taking the time to add your blog to, but I’d recommend doing these 4 or 5 at a time, once a week for a few weeks to stretch out the new links and mak sure the link growth appears more natural to the search engines, how many you do is up to you, and I’ve listed them by “PageRank” to help.

Here’s the other blog directories: –

  1. Blogarama.com PR7
  2. Blogs.botw.org PR7
  3. Bloggernity.com PR7
  4. BlogHub.com PR6
  5. Bloggapedia.com PR6
  6. Blogged.com PR6
  7. BlogRankings.com PR6
  8. BloggingFusion.com PR6
  9. BlogSearchEngine.com PR6
  10. GetBlogs.com PR5
  11. TopBlogarea.com PR5
  12. OnTopList.com PR5
  13. BlogExplosion.com PR5
  14. BlogPoint.com PR4
  15. BlogHints.com PR4
  16. BlogUniverse.org PR4
  17. SpillBean.com PR4
  18. BlogFlux.com PR4
  19. Blogio.net PR4
  20. BlogTopList.com PR3
  21. BlogTopSites.com PR3
  22. Bloggeries.com PR3
  23. BlogListing.net PR3

[“PR” = Pagerank]

so that’s all you really need to know or do with Submitting your website or blog to directories, it’s not a biggy and is really quite simple, it just takes a bit of time, and don’t forget you can always outsource the work…

I am always interested in getting more back links, especially, if the belong to higher page ranks. I do not have a blog of my own yet, although I do have several static sites. Thanks for the information. The more links, the more traffic.

A very handy reference guide – thanks Matt, I’ll be submitting my new Amega Global blogs to the main 3 directories ASAP and will tackle the others when I get a chance (it’s great to have a current list with PR status).

Your traffic series is excellent.
