Are SEO Backlinks From Article Directories Good or Bad For Higher Google Search Rankings?

Individuals typically ask me: “Neil, are backlinks from post directory sites excellent or bad for higher Google search rankings?”.

The brief response is: NO

There are many post directory sites out there, you can actually discover one on every topic out there. They are so simple to get that search engines understand this and they put little to no weight on these links.

When it comes to directory sites that sell links, they aren’t a good fit since it is buying links. Search engine frown upon this.

When it comes to writing posts and sending them to directories, this likewise doesn’t work well. It utilized to in the past, however these websites have little to no authority and the content quality on their directory site sites are so bad that they don’t even rank well on Google.

Now if you occur to discover a directory that is related to your specific niche, is popular and can own you customers, then by all means attempt and get links from them.

Construct these links only if it can own consumers and not to control Google search. I also recommend that you nofollow any links from directory sites or post directory sites.

      There is no one technique. You have to use a few, but I would first start off by writing amazing content.

      I don’t have a list. You need to get ones that are relevant to you. Go to ahrefs.com and put in your competitor URLs to get a list of ones to first look at.
