Directory listings are links in general or niche directories. A directory listing generally has a link to a site called a title which is followed by a text description. Directory listings are acquired by webmasters in order to build the link popularity for a site.
Types Of Directory Listings
There are several types of directory listings. Some directories offer permanent listings which means the listing will be present for the life of the site that was listed. There are also listings that will be present for a indicated time period such as 1 year. Some directories offer both of these types of listings but have different fees for each.
Why Get Directory Listings?
Directory listings are a popular way to build one way links for a site. By getting a site listed in numerous directories the number of inbound links will increase. These links will not only help keyword rankings but may also drive some traffic to a site. Niche directory listings in particular may actually bring customers to a site.
