Checkthisout Link Internet directories Are Being Banned By Google

News split out in the SEO community WebmasterWorld recently that Look for engines is banning/penalizing weblink internet directories. It was revealed by some SEO professionals, that about 50% of the weblink internet directories have been de-listed by Look for engines after a recent formula upgrade. This action is believed to be guide rather than computerized.

What are weblink internet directories and why is Look for engines Penalizing them?

A web index or weblink index is an web page, which focuses on connecting to other web sites and categorizing those hyperlinks. Many web page owners and SEO’ers publish their web page URLs to hundreds of these types of weblink internet directories to improve inbound links directing to their sites.


One of the Link Directory banned by Google.


Google has been concentrating intensely to enhance the buyer of the guests. People, who practice Black Hat SEO methods usually utilize these weblink internet directories intensely to improve their inbound links and eventually enhance their serp's positions. As per Google’s latest claims, anything that does not enhance prospective customer's encounter is needless and this type of link-building is considered as non-content trash. Look for engines is advertising inbound links, which they think, have been obtained normally.
Naturally obtained hyperlinks through visitor content and by being presented in other weblogs, actually provides extra value to people of the web site. Many Link internet directories on the other hand, are dead because they have no human relationship. Apart from attractive inbound links to enhance PageRank, many of these weblink internet directories are not going to be of much help in increasing devoted guests or customers. Look for Engine methods are getting more intelligent day by day and they are not giving any value to these types of weblink internet directories. These weblink internet directories generally do not bring any recommendation visitors and will not position in serp's.

What does this mean to the webmasters?

Although we know that Look for engines is based more on weblink framework for position, using this older SEO technique will not be of significant help. Webmasters should try to develop hyperlinks the organic way with similar or related sites because Look for engines provides more value to such hyperlinks. You can learn how to develop organic hyperlinks by reading our previous article Link Developing Fundamentals.
Although, there are a few well managed weblink internet directories which can targeted visitors your web page. Instead of mass weblink distribution, you should examine the weblink index for its value and power before posting the weblink.

Just checked through my list of almost three thousand web directories with paid inclusion and they're all indexed & with pagerank.

When it comes to relevancy - just take a look at the top ranking websites for any given hard keyword and you'll see that porn links from chinese websites are as good as any other backlinks. Somehow it's always the same blabla in the SEO community, Google can't spot shit and it probably never will.

Not all directories are being banned. I am not trying to decrease the importance of directory backlinks. I know they are very powerful and i use them first when i start SEO for my own sites. I was GOOGLEing and found this info. so, I thought to share with this community.

As I have said before, Google is punishing directories with no moderation, or just link farms.

If you operate a directory (or I would argue, any website) Google wants to see you exercise editorial discretion. Charging money is discretionaryl.

Google loves footprints. Anything that's ran off templates will eventually lead to those sites being affected by any site using said templates. This is why WP sites have lost a lot of their SEO boosts that they originally had. The same is true for directory software.

Change up the HTML templates, URL structures, and modify the posting/registration process and the site will probably come back in a few months.

Finally got it. Google just deleted SPAMMED directories. Directories which were containing tonnes of SPAM. Please do not stop buying them. They are very helpful for SERP boost. Just avoid buying nofollow, PR less and software based directory submission. Thank you.

That's not exactly correct. Google is fine with paid directories if the payment is for editorial discretion. In other words, if you're paying them to analyze your website for submission.

If you are straight up selling links, then that's ok too, as long as you nofollow them.

The paid directory business is massive. IMers don't make use of it, because people are more interested in what low quality links they can get 1000s of from Fiverr than building a website they will still be running in 3 years.

When I started in SEO, the niche I was in, it was impossible to get links because the stuff I was marketing had questionable legality. I had to build crappy links because they were the only ones I could get.

They worked great in my niche, so eventually people took them into the mainstream. Then you had guys using the same tools and link spaces I had been using, to promote Adsense sites selling toaster ovens.

Now Google has basically reset the game.

There are people who will disagree with me or have additional insight. I am ok with that. I don't profess to have perfect knowledge about this, it's just my gut feeling after doing a fair bit of thinking about it.

Sure, some people will continue to be successful with spam. Until they aren't. But if you're building any kind of proper website, spam is a losers game.

Everyone knows I hate Adsense, and that's because you can't make enough money with Adsense to do proper marketing. People running Adsense-only sites are going to find it increasingly hard to monetize beyond the hobbyist level. I am not talking about the huge content farms, which are great at content marketing, but the guys you find on this forum, who think Adsense is going to give them a perpetual passive income lifestyle.

Some directories are basically the same as those blog networks which were clamped down on. All clones of the other, separated by categories and tags all with the same links in, and all with the same style of crap spun content (descriptions in the case of directories).

Many get their content syndicated to them from services like YEXT.

Why Google lets them do this is ....

I'll explain later

Interesting

Did you observe one thing! many directory sites put big size Submit a link button just above the small size submit a link button. The big size button is ad or other link. The real button to submit a form is small size button. This is how they are trying to get monies.

i always wondered whether it was worth the steep fees to be in places like yahoo directory and botw.com, business.com, etc
the reason i could see the answer being yes, is that anyone willing to drop a few hundred bucks on a listing, is likely legitimate and attempting to be whitehat (ie-doesn't know about creating a bunch of low quality or cheaper links)

Well it is simple, the directory owner also needs to make money, If he is on a free web directory model, so many times we see adsense blocks being stacked right below each other on the submission form.

link farm or not... phpLD still does great business. so that a clue. it really depends on the owner which way he treats his directory.

so it the right way and and it will grow...

most sites that are going down is becuase the quality is gone down... and become link farms (read post above).

linkshake is a jewel in the rough
Directories aren't going to last too long... too many OBLs, too little user-value, too little traffic and user activity - maybe 2% of the directories will actually end up having links with any value, and even if they're not de-ranked or penalized, the links just won't really help.

one more reason for going down the most of directories is owner of directories concentrate more on making money through Google ad-words or advertise on their directories rather than making their directory clean from spam links.
