Top Web Directories & ILQ Explained

Now with most SEO experts holding that Pagerank has little or no ranking weight, some of the most meaningful stats to determine the value of a sites inbound links are how many dir.yahoo.com, DMOZ, EDU and GOV inbound links a site has.

This is how the Inbound Link Quality (ILQ) rating system works. Yahoo links get 1 point (you get an average of 15 links per Yahoo Directory submission), each DMOZ link get 30 points, each EDU link is given 45 links, and each GOV link gets 67 points. The points are all added up and that gives you the ILQ Rating.

I am not advocating that links coming from Web directories with no dir.yahoo, DMOZ, EDU or GOV links don't provide any ranking weight, but I am advocating that the quality of the inbound links a directory has will make a difference in the ranking weight a link from a directory gives.

Also just because a directory has a dir.yahoo, DMOZ, EDU or GOV links doesn't mean it is passing ranking weight. If the directory has run of the site links (ROS) that aren't in a nofollow tag, or if the editor quality is low, or they are giving links out to sites that are in bad neighborhoods they many not be passing any ranking weight.

The SEO Company Web Site is owned by Solutions with Service (SWS). SWS is a member of Southern Ontario BBB and a member of BBB online. We have a perfect record with NO complains and we plan on keeping it that way. You can purchase with peace of mind knowing your have recourse if you are not happy with the products or services. -- View BBB Reliability Report

What SEO Company Clients Are Saying

Matthew Earle - Business Analyst of Kanetix Ltd. - Bob Mutch is the most proactive, straightforward and knowledgeable SEO professional I have ever had the pleasure of hiring.
Rather than putting the onus on the customer to come up with ideas for promoting their website, Bob makes it easy by independently researching and customizing solutions to help the customer's website achieve the traffic it deserves.
What really makes Bob stand out is the effort he makes to get to know his customers, understand their individual needs and then help them reach their goals. In particular I would recommend his SEO consulting packages, directory submission services and hourly consulting packages. I highly recommend Bob Mutch for all of your SEO needs.

Calum Edmond - Director of EveryCarHire.com. - Bob Mutch is hands down the most reliable guy in the business!
After paid advertising (Google PPC) started to become less effective, we began to look for better rankings via natural (organic) methods. Initially we were targeting very competitive keywords, which were impossible to rank and get sufficient traffic for.
Through Bob's understanding, guidance and vast experience, we have now begun to target less competitive keywords. This strategy has seen our web traffic and rankings increase dramatically. We now have total confidence in Bob's expertise and look forward to reaping the benefits. Thanks a million Bob, we don't ever want to lose your highly valued services!

Yoav Ezer - VP of eMarketing at Cogniview Systems. - After working with another (very famous) SEO consultant and failing miserably, Bob has been a breath of fresh air.
Bob openly shares his very effective SEO strategies and has saved us a lot of time and money.
If you are serious about SEO and need a consultant that knows what works and what doesn't and willingly shares that with you, I would hire Bob in a heart beat. If you want to waste time and money, you can either do it yourself or hire someone else.
