    Lets say i have allot of sites in the dating niche is it good for me to collect a big list of dating directories and submit my sites in all these dating directories?

    Is it worth to put most of my time to submit my sites to directories with high PR and buy links? What else can i do to improve SERP on my sites?

    I'm a noon on this and would love to get a "What to do list"...

    I will buy some services here on BHW but when i don't have any money to invest i want to do some work my self.

    Thanks

    Yes I have seen rank boosts come from niche directory submission. Focus on the high PR directories and create backlinks to your backlinks. Quality over quantity to start. But don't stop and eventually build a high quantity of quality backlinks through a diverse SEO campaign and high quality on-site content and proper on-site optimization. Good luck!

    This works the best for local keywords. Especially if you have a google places listing. For more general keywords I haven't found it to be all that great but I guess if you get some solid listings from high PR niche directories it could help especially if you take schwagoo's advice about creating backlinks to your backlinks.

    Of course but I would save higher quality services to backlink my money site or pages with unique content linking to my money site. There's fiverr too for lower quality link services.

    For something like a directory, I would probably use something more like social bookmarks, SB blasts, profiles, etc. That is unless I was trying to rank the directory listing which I do sometimes with local keywords.

    In that case I will put more effort into higher quality links.

    Yes, you should do it immediately. It also wouldn't hurt to submit your site to all other directories as well for link diversity (links coming from different C class ip's).

    If they want a reciprocal link just skip it. Big G doesn't seem to like those sites.

    Yes it is, because the search engines (e.g. Google) checks the link juice to your web page. Google bots check if your backlinks are from a related source or not.
    Thats why it is a said Universal truth that building 20,000 backlinks all from a related blog/forum or site is 10 fold better that having 100,000 irrelevant links.
