Creating quality Backlink is an important step of Search Engine Optimization. Article Directories are great for creating one way backlink and still now it is a good way to drive traffic. But what happens actually for those who does not search a lot or do not know what article directories are dofollow, what are nofollow and also what is their page rank?
From my personal experience I can say that many people just waste their time by submitting articles to some crap article directories. This happens because they do not do a good research for them. There is also another big mistake is using auto submission software. There is no need to submit your article to hundreds of directory. Just use 20 good ranking and dofollow directory and get quality backlinks. Submit your article manually. Who wanna risks to get ban from valuable places
I have listed 50 directories which I use personally and they work great. I am providing the list here and wish to update this list whenever I found any other good directory.
