The Top 5 Web Directories That Gain Search Engine Authority


There are hundreds, thousands, even millions of web directories in which you can submit your website to. Why am I suggesting these five directories and what makes them more important than any other web directory? AUTHORITY!

One of Google's algorithm components is website authority. A good way to see the authority value of a website is to look at its Google page rank. A bad page rank starts at "page not ranked" all the way to a fantastic page rank of 10. While there are other aspects to keep in consideration when you're building links, page authority should be near the top. One contextual link from a highly authoritative web page is more valuable than 20 contextual links from low authority web pages.

You now understand the concept of Google authority, so let's begin with the list of directories.

1. Yahoo.com Directory (http://dir.yahoo.com) PR 8/10
2. DMOZ.org Directory (http://www.dmoz.org) PR 8/10
3. Business.com Directory (http://www.business.com) PR 7/10
4. Best Of The Web Directory (http://www.botw.org) PR 6/10
5. Joe Ant Directory (http://www.joeant.com) PR 5/10

Submitting to these directories gets you five authoritative contextual links to your website. These links alone may not get you that coveted number one spot on Google but it will give your website more authority in the eyes of all search engines. In the end its page authority which plays a part of search engine rankings.

There you have it, the top 5 web directories your site should be included in to gain search engine authority.
