In today’s ever changing SEO climate it takes more than on-page optimization (Page Title, Description Meta Tag, H1 Tags, Keyword Density, etc) in order to dominate the search engines. Before it used to be as easy as stuffing a website with the same keyword in order to gain quick SEO rankings… but today, it takes a little bit more than just on-page optimization to dominate the search engines.
It’s being said that 30% of your SEO ranking comes from on-page optimization and 70% comes from off-page optimization which is having great quality backlinks pointing to your site. Some people say that the more backlinks you have pointing to your site is the best way you attain high rankings, but that’s not necessary truth nowadays.
Google has been placing more emphasis in the quality of the backlink more than the quantity.
Free link directories has been a cost effective way of getting one way backlinks to your site but will submitting your website to free link directories improve your search engine ranking in today’s seo climate? I decided to do a little test and I think you will like the results.
Are backlinks from Free Link Directories still effective to boost your search engine ranking?
In order to answer this question, I decided to do a little test. In my test, I ordered a manual submission of one of my blogs www.funnyweddingtoastsblogs.com to 1000 free link directories. I hired a freelancer whom I found in the warrior forum to do the manual submission for me. He started doing the manual submissions on August 3rd, 2010 and it took him a little less than a week to complete the job.
My Search engine position on August 3rd,2010 was # 15 in Google for the keyword "Funny Wedding Toasts."
You can see a print screen here:
A little bit after a month, I notice a little boost in my search engine ranking. I went from being #15 in Google to being #8.
So as you can see from my little case study, building backlinks from free link directories could be benefit your search engine ranking but you might not see immediate results. In my case it took a little bit over a month to see a boost.
I would not recommend ordering 1,000+ directory submissions if you have a new site as this might cause your website from being "Sandboxed". You can read a little bit more avoiding Google’s Sandbox by clicking here.
I hope this information is helpful to you in your quest for "Google Supremacy"

P. S. If by any chance you want to use the same guy I used to manually submit your website to 1,000+ free link directories, contact him by email. His name is Desmond and his email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
He does a great job and his rate are pretty reasonable…. I paid $13.99 for my 1,000 manual submissions. I highly recommend him.
