    In my time I've submitted 1000s of links to general directories. Most of them seem to disappear into the ether! Nowdays some people think directories are a waste of time. My view is that they have some worth. So here we have a list of directories, (mostly free some requiring a reciprocal) that actually show up in my backlink profile (I used domain-pop.com) for various of my sites. These are all general directories and I have no connection with any of them other than a link on their site.

    bizseo.com
    digibritain.co.uk
    regionalreview.eu
    abc-directory.com - nofollow
    wondex.com - no follow
    oddssylinkdirectory.com
    addurlwebdirectories.com -nofollow
    acedirectory.org
    sublimedir.net
    humaneditedwebdirectory.com
    bl3.co.uk
    londovor.com
    londinium.com
    diroo.org (may be paid now)
    betadirectory.com
    freeukdirectory.co.uk (edit-(may not be adding new lictings)
    flesko.co.uk
    020.co.uk
    toplocallistings.co.uk
    vendora.com
    easytorecall.com
    slackalice.com
    ahahb.com
    primodirectory.com
    passion-4.net
    britinfo.net
    atlantisweb.net
    frootful.net
    runfatcat.com
    onemilliondirectory.com


    If anyone has any to add to the list - make sure that they actually show up in your profile - that would be great

    Thanks a lot for those.

    When I have some time I'll definitely use some of them :)

    Nice list!

    It's knowing which ones are well maintained and regularly indexed, with good title tags for categories.


    Try some of these.

    www.directoryorigin.com
    www.3business.com/directory
    www.wwwi.co.uk
    www.

    Do a search in google for the best niche ones, on topic to your domain. If they come up in the first 3 pages, then you know they are worth submitting to.

    Cheers for these, I've given a few of them a try just now.

    Technorati is well respected so if you have a blog you can submit it there. Based on various factors it can appear in a number of direct directories within the site. Don't forget other strategies such as creating mini sites themed around your main site and local directories, occasional blog comments etc.

    You can try Sail.co.uk if you're in the watersports or marine arena. I'm incredibly picky though and every single link is hand checked... (Requires a third party reciprocal).

    Most directories nowadays are considered as low value, here are a few more that are worth getting listed in:

    brownbook.net
    turnpike.net/directory.phtml
    pegasusdirectory.com
    cylex-uk.co.uk

    Thanks dolom8 - finding new directories that are worthwhile is tricky. There's only so many niche directories!
