Shortly after launching this website, I went on a backlinks building campaign and successfully submitted http://evotechzone.com to 49 free web directories! Since then I’ve regularly updated this list to add more quality sites and remove anything that’s no longer free or has lapsed in quality. (The last update was on January 25, 2016).
Sure, directory submissions are very VERY boring, but they’re totally worth doing! And submitting evotechzone.com to the free directories in this list was actually the first ever active link building exercise I did. I chose to do this first because it can take months to get your submissions approved.
So after scraping the internet for free web directory lists I squeezed 76 potential candidates into an excel spreadsheet. Most of the lists I found from Google searches were either duplicates or very out of date. The most up-to-date web directory list was one I found later just as I was finishing up submitting to the below directories – Top 100 free directory list.
Out of the 76 supposedly “FREE” directory submission sites I tried to submit to from my excel, 14/76 malfunctioned and 13/76 were not free at all! This left me with just 49 that had literally free options. Here they are:
49 Fully Functioning Free Web Directories
UPDATE: There are now 62 free directories in the list!
I hope this list is helpful to your own backlink building efforts 🙂
Are there any awesome free web directories missing from this list? Please post your recommendations in the comments below!
