Do you have a website and are looking for more traffic? If so you don’t have to despair trying

to figure out how you will direct traffic to your site because there is a tried and true way to

increase your traffic in no time! The best method to get more traffic is with one way links.

You may have heard of reciprocal links in the past, but that requires you to host a link on your

site as well. With one way links there is a link to your site, but you don’t have to host a

link as well! You might be wondering how you can possibly get other sites to host a link to

your site without you having to host a link back, but fortunately it is not only possible but

really easy with web directories!

 

One Way Links and Web Directories

Website directories are simply directories that focus on compiling links to other websites

and then categorizing them. There are thousands of web directories on the Web that will allow

you as a website owner to submit your website information and link to have included in the

web directory. Then, a human will review the submission to approve it for the web directory.

Then, your site will have a new one way link in the web directory that will help you reach more

people and ultimately get more traffic. Since there are so many web directories you can spend a

lot of time submitting your information in order to receive those important one way links.

Or else you could hire someone to do it for you. Amazingly, there are many online companies

that focus on submitting your link to website directories and since they already know the

web directories and how to go about the process they can do it fast and cheap!

 

Since there are so many directories out there and you want as many links as possible

then this might be the best bet for you. Trying to link your site with all of the web directories

on the web will take a lot of your time and you won’t be able to focus on other projects or business.

Of course, if you have a lot of free time then you can visit all of the web directories you want to

submit your website to get a one way link. That is completely up to you, just know there are companies

that offer this service for a very reasonable rate.

Some of the most famous web directories are Yahoo! Directory, Open Directory Project,

as well as LookSmart, so you will want to start with these. Of course, there are plenty of

other web directories to choose from and you might need to do a little online research to figure

out which ones are best. Just remember, if you want more traffic for your website start placing

some one way links to your site in web directories and watch the visitors come.
