If you are arriving on this page, you are probably either looking for some directories where you can submit, or you are wishing to have your directory included in a directory of directories. Before you proceed, please make note of some important points to consider.

There are some great directories that will help you get better search results, and some bad directories that engage in really bad SEO which you want to avoid. The directories of directories below offer some different ways to find the best directories for which you can submit your site. so let’s take a look.

Surely the longest running guide to directories is a site that goes by the funny name Info Vilesilencer. The owner Dan has been accepting submissions and carefully organizing lists of the best directories for more than a decade. The site has been featured in SEO books and printed web magazines. I’ve often heard him say that a good way to see if a directory is of quality is to search for flowers on their directory and see what you get. Try it! You’ll find a great list here and you won’t have to worry about getting in trouble with search engines if you use his lists. And don’t miss the directories forum where you’ll find discussion with knowledgeable people in the directory industry.

For a more exhaustive list there is Web Directories WS. What is great about this site is the owner keeps up with trends in the industry. This list is much larger than Info Vilesilencer but it is well maintained, and the “junk” is cleared out, For the larger directories a record is provided of the number of active links and you can see their progression over time to give you an idea which directories are actively receiving new links to their site. I also recommend you check out the web directories blog where industry trends are discussed.

Above all, when you submit or include your directory in lists, make sure you submit to directories that have been reviewed by professionals and you can also do very with directories in achieving traffic and rankings!
