Well I wanted to give out some savings for my favorite web directory before they up the prices come 2010. BOTW is raising the roof on prices next year by a little bit, so now is the time to get in while the prices are cheap plus the 15% off with this coupon. This BOTW coupon is good until the last minute on December 31st, 2009.
I know a lot of you hear me praising BOTW.org a lot and it is for good reason. Earning your site a level of trust in Google is what good quality link should do, and this is a piece of the puzzle. The BOTW review process weeds out low quality sites so getting accepted here lets Google know your site is worthy of a little more trust. I’ve personally the positive results obtained from being accepted into this directory which is more than 15 years old!
Coupon Code: LINKBLD for 15% off botw.org
Webmaster Catalog is a quality web directory that has ushered in the web 2.0 touches to make it a complete webmaster resource. I don’t find myself doing a lot of directory link building these days unless it is with very authoritative paid directories, or very authoritative free directories. I’ve been using Link Voodoo to put a quality score on all my my link building efforts recently, and Webmaster Catalog scored 59% which is pretty damn good.
The directory is human edited and from what I’ve seen is that the sites going into the directory have to be quality, and it has made the site top notch as far as directories go. I’m not sure if the script used is custom or not, but it brings in a set of great listing features that go beyond title/description. If you check out the Linkbuildr profile page I got once approved, you’ll be able to see all the features they offer. All the links are do follow, so you get an anchor text of your choice(if approved) as well do follow links through an archive of your RSS feed. Users can also write reivews and rank your site, so if you’d like to drop me a review feel free…I won’t mind :)
