  1. Hey vishal
    All of list is awesome i will try it.and backlink is importent to get google page rank and traffic also. Web directories which you gave us its awesome and very simple to submit our links.
    Thanks a lot to share this . 🙂

  2. Hi Vishal,
    Nice list. We are all looking to build back-links and rank and I think this is a good idea. You have actually made our work easier since we can register and do our backing linking there. I have tried some of the few sites you have posted above and can’t complain of the performance so far.

  3. Hi Vishal Thanks for submitting the informative article wanna know how much time web directory submission take to index on alexa

    • Hey Sahil,

      It can take 15 days for a link show on alexa, whereas it can take more than 3 months for a link to be shown on alexa. So, its nt fixed, it can vary on link to link, whether how and when Google see that link… So, keep building links, after few months you will see great results..

  4. Hey Vishal, first of all i just want to give a big thanks to you for such a nice list. All sites are useful which you have provided here but when checked some of them a number of sites are taking paid listings and some are reciprocal. Some are free but it seems getting links from those free sites are quite hard. Paid link or free link whatever it may be but getting niche based high PR back links is the best part of doing link building practice.
