I have just launched a new website and i am planning to submit my website to all the quality paid directories.
I am confused should i do this or not, because what i am looking for is quality traffic.
Thus, submitting a new website to quality directories like business.com, yahoo dir, botw.org and other would help in driving any traffic?
Beyond that I've obtained links from other sites that, looking from the other sites linked to from their pages, it's clear they discovered my site from researching through a directory. I only submit to a very few directories, the most important ones and ignore the rest. I miss Zeal, that was a high quality directory. Wish LS hadn't pulled the plug on that.
There's only one directory in my niche that drives any traffic at all. It drives a very tiny amount of very high quality traffic (all of them immediate buyers). I own a second directory that after a number of years is also starting to drive a wee, tiny amount of traffic.
However, both of those directories get the bulk of *their* traffic from the SE's.
I don't think something like the Yahoo! directory would drive $300 worth of traffic through to my site in a year.
And i think that is the basic step of link development. Then i can move on with getting some high quality links from my niche websites.
