This is the first post in the section for Paid Links, which is just as it sounds…everything related to buying quality text links from very reputable review services such as Best Of The Web. This is perhaps one of the most well known, and oldest directories on the web today. It has been running since 1994 when an University student named Brandon Plewe created the platform to enable he burgeoning online community to nominate and vote for best-of-class websites in a variety of categories. The site blossomed into a web directory of unique and content rich websites that served the online community.
This is one of the few web directories that I recommend to clients when we’re doing a campaign in a tough niche. Getting into the BOTW Directory requires that your site be up to standards, and dish out unique content, or a original service. If your website makes it then you’ve managed to attain a link that is worth its weight in gold.
Best of the Web is committed to maintaining the high standard of listings that has proven key to its success while continuing to grow. To rank among the Best of the Web, a site must adhere to the strict criteria of editors who ensure that it contains substantive unique content, navigates in a user-friendly manner, contains no broken links or pictures, is up and running 24/7, and conforms to universally accepted web standards. In this way, quality sites are added to the directory on a daily basis and listed in relevant categories that run the gamut of the alphabet from the arts to zoology.
The great thing about paying for a review to be in the site, is that you not only get the link juice, but targeted traffic that comes from the directory. You can get your listing within 3 business days, and once approved you get acess to a control panel with all your stats and payment history. Pricing is set at $99.95 annually recurring review fee, and $249.95 one-time review fee.
