I want to know that if for link building if I am doing high-quality free directory submission manually will it consider as spamming as per the Google guidelines which can affect my website.

Can we do High-Quality free manual directories submission for link building or not?

Not sure about any g down rank, but directories, in general, have been deprecated for years.

Might want to find another way to promote a site.

Directories of a generic nature have zero SEO value: That ship sailed a long time back.

Thank You so much for your reply. So as I understand you are saying that it is not recommended to do the directories submission weather it is of high or low quality doesn't matter right

I'm saying that it makes very little difference and time can be better spent on other methods.
I'd add that there may be life in very specialist, niche directories, but even then, not from an seo point of view.

Hello-

High quality directories are extremely rare, nowadays. High quality free directories belong to the myths.

High quality free directories belong to the myths.
I could name one (but I wonít). Itís supported by a major university, which explains much.
