    Hey guys, I just wanted to share a technique that very well might be old, but is being used by many SEO companies right now within my area.
    I've noticed quire a few trusted directory listing hitting the top three positions in google, so I checked the links in ahrefs and it's nothing but pure spam using something like GSA. I'm yet to do this myself but I thought I'd put it out there to see what the response is.

    it works, you just need a trusted domain which will not burn easily.

    Sorry guy, I will give more details.

    Ok, you have a trusted directory such as Yelp (as an example) and you create a business profile on these trusted business directories. Once you create a business profile you have a url such as yelp.com/somerandomclug/digitsetc

    Now, you open a a program like GSA (as an example) and you post 50 links a day - to your business page url - over 2 - 3 months to rank the directory listing page that your business is on.

    I don't think I can make that clearer.

    I only know Australian ones, but if you're looking in Google then look for Local Business Directories, or Local Business Listings. That should get you a tonne!

    I donot think directory work anymore, donot waste time building link and you would have to spend tons of time removing those link.

    Yeah, I don't believe in blog submission. It wastes time and money.

    FFS, you guys don't get it.

    You rank the directory submission itself! I'm not talking about building a tonne of directory submission to point a link to your business site. Geez.

    Let me dumb this down further so even your mothers can understand it.

    Step 1: You google business director listing sites
    Step 2: You create a business page for your business (no link to your site, just a phone number and address)
    Strep 3: You build links to your business page on the business directory site.

    Get it yet? If not then you're completely useless.

    doesn't everyone do this??

    I use it mainly for ORM, making it virtually impossible for a neg review to get onto first page of G for my company name, although it helps SEOwise too.
