Getting High PR

As I said before that I will be posting how I got a PR 3 in less than 2 months, so here it is...

Working with other blog and websites I felt there is something more to SEO and high PR than just backlinks and this is what has been proved with this blog. I got a few backlinks( at least compared to my other sites and blogs, they look few), like 400 something. But all those were backlinks from sites having same or relevant titles and content. So, I learned that backlinks from related keywords can improve your PR and ranking in SERPS.

Page Rank Update, I have PR3

Oh, I just noticed that this blog i.e. "SEO LINK DIRECTORIES" has become a PR 3 blog in less than 2 months!!!
It is really beyond my expectation. With just 14 posts in two months, I was expecting a PR 1 and PR 2 was what I dreamed about. So its a 3 now. I am planning to work hard on this blog from now on to attain a PR 4 on next Google's toolbar PR update.
With this PR update I have learned some new things about SEO and Page Rank(PR) which I will share with you soon.


Was really busy with another new blog. Will start posting informative stuff about the link directories soon. If you want to know about directories, you can put your queries in the comments and I will answer.

Dmoz, Now a Low Quality Directory

Dmoz is losing its worth and by the authority this directory has got in the niche, other web directories will lose their worth due to Dmoz too.

How and why is it losing its worth?
A large number of reputed webmasters have claimed(and complained) that Dmoz editors are asking for money to include their sites in the Free Web Directory(Dmoz) due to which Dmoz has lost its reputation and is affecting the reputation of web directories as a whole due to its importance in the field. Now we don't see the Google's webmaster guideline anymore about submitting to web directories like Dmoz, thanx to Dmoz and other directories who are killing their reputation.

Google Webmaster Guidelines

There used to be a guideline about the "web directories" in Google's webmaster guidelines. Google directed webmasters to submit their sites to the link directories such as DMOZ and Yahoo Directory. Note that DMOZ is a free directory while Yahoo Directory is a paid directory. Interestingly Google is against getting paid links and one can't submit a directory to Yahoo Directory without paying a good some of money. Anyways, coming back to the point, Google wanted webmasters to submit their sites to both free and the paid directories. Now this guideline has gone. WHY?!

Well, whether the guideline about directories is there or not, I will still recommend you to submit your sites to directories because backlink is a backlink and you can get one free quality backlink from directories. Guideline about getting backlinks is still there in Google webmaster tools and I think it will be there as long as Google exist because there whole algorithm is based upon backlinks. And here is an advice, be careful while subitting to directories, specially paid ones and observe Google's trend. Don't get yourself penalized by Google. Submit to a few directories and see if your site's rankings have gone down or up or no change and then submit to other directories accordingly. Do make sure that you submit to quality directories only.
