I've noticed recently a lot of local newspaper websites linking through to my site. Ever curious I wondered if we'd been covered in a local news story. We haven't. The links are coming from the same directory (I think it is either Yahoo or DMOZ) hosted on each site.
Are directories a thing now like they were back in the noughties? Or, have these local newspapers hired a SEO who hasn't quite gotten past the noughties SEO playbook?
