    I know that everyone here does whatever they can to build up their backlink profile, whether it's blog commenting, using xrumer, article submissions, Digg commenting blah blah blah. So I figured I would throw up a list of free directories (old school) that actually show up as backlinks.

    So here's the story:
    13 sites submitted to 1165 directories over a 3 month span. Since September 08, here are 174 directories that are actually showing up as backlinks for my sites, and a list(s) of free directories that I submitted to:

    *Quick side note: I think it would be pretty cool if everyone pitched in on this one, comparing their records using linkdiagnosis.com, backlinkwatch.com, seoMOZ's Linkscape (membership required) or good old Y! Site Explorer. I guess I'm just tired of wasting my time/money on 4000+ free directories that don't actually do anything.

    Hey thanks for the list, I will start submitting to a lot of them now, and I will try to get a list of directories that I have submitted to and when they approved me.

    Good thinking and good share... Totally agree, hate the time waste when a great majority won't approve me anyway.

    You will not chose reciprocal linking option, but simple free option to submit. Please someone, correct me if I'm wrong.

    Thanks for the list.

    The 174 links is per site or all 3 sites combined? Is those sites shown up in your backlinks consistence for all 3 sites?

    2 months ago ive used some backlink submission service. Only 50 from 1500 directory's are indexed/approved. Great to see a nice list like this :)
