#2 – Directory Submissions – And yes the ones that seem to carry the most trust and authority in Googles eyes you usually have to pay for…well Except for http://www.Dmoz.org do not submit to the 5 below unless your site is of high quality.
http://www.dmoz.org Free, but seems to be a long wait for most people..
Their is also many more directories that you can submit to but most have no editorial guidelines therefore they typically carry little weight in Google..
If you do submit your site to lots of directories than an easy way to get your listing crawled by Google faster is to bookmark the page that your listing is on….Because most directories will have your listing pretty deep in their site.
#3 – Blog Comments
