    I have a local directory website for my hometown and I need to build up my backlink profile, but I want to concentrate on quality and doing it properly.

    If I want to emphasize that I want to rank locally, should I concentrate on getting local backlinks? Or is overall quality of the backlinks more important, even for a local site?

    Thanks for your help.

    You haven't really given too much info about the dir contents. But I would make sure I get an anchor link including the area (and pointing back to the relevant category in the dir obv) on each and every site that is in my dir.

    Then if people search for "service" in "area" then your directory should come up because of the exact match ibl.

    Hope this helps.
