Before starting a link building you need to filter your keywords according to search volume your website requirements and theme of the website. Once you have filtered your keywords, you need to build the directory list. For this you need to have Google Toolbar or any other plugin which allows to check the PR value of the webpage. Steps to build a directory list for targeted keywords. e.g. "business". Open google.com andtype " business + "addurl.php" in the search window, Google will come back with a list of web directories which offer business related link submissions. Sample Google Queries: Code: business + ".com/addurl.php" Code: business + ".net/addurl.php" Code: business + ".org/addurl.php" Open these links one by one and start building a list of web directories where you want to submit your website to, its better if you save URL's in a text file or bookmark them.** Repeat the same steps for all keywords, and start submission in selected lists or URL's, Remember that after compiling the list of URL's for each keyword, start submissions otherwise some of these links might not offer free submission at that time.
