Directory in the top search results
As we mentioned earlier, your directory listings are really just like any other
inbound link and should be assessed accordingly. Don’t make any niche or paid direc-
tory submittals today; wait until Friday, after you’ve completed your other link-building
activities for the week. You may decide that there are so many opportunities out there
that the paid or niche directory listings aren’t worth your bother.
Wednesday: Surf for More Link Opportunities
Yesterday you began building the list of potential linking websites on your Link Track-
ing Worksheet. Today, you’ll surf the Web to expand your list of sites. First, you need
to know what makes a link worth chasing:
• Quality links defined
• Expanding your link requests list
Open your Link Tracking Worksheet and document possible niche directory URLs under “New
Links/Requests”—but don’t do any submittals yet!
