Directory submission is still an important part of SEO in 2020. Backlinks (links to your website from other sites) show Google and other search engines that your website is worth referring to. Directory submission is one way to do this, amongst other off-page SEO techniques. We’ve created a HUGE list of 100 Free Directory Submission Sites to boost your website SEO.

It’s important when building links that submissions are done manually with high quality websites or directories. Bulk submission of backlinks can harm your rankings as they will undoubtedly draw links from low quality spammy websites.

As part of our SEO Packages, we use this list to submit our client’s sites to relevant directories, using a mixture of ‘do-follow’ and ‘no-follow’ links, to make a natural backlink profile.

Here’s our list of 100 Free Directory Submission Sites. We rank them using Ahrefs DR (domain rank) metric. If you have any quality directories you use, please feel free to add them in the comments, and we’ll add them to our list.
