What type of Paid Directories does Google like?


Many do think that Paid Directories are totally uncounted for sites ranking by Google algorithm and some think all paid directories are same for Google ranking. Which one do Google go with?

Google only supports editorial Paid Directories i.e. paid sites inclusion through manual review following quality guidelines and rules. Before submitting to a paid directory do double check for its recognition. Some may have just added there terms of use as editorial or human edited paid directory for namesake but actually may not be. Do not get stuck with that. Don't get paid and banned from Google. Consult with some top search engine forums or industry leaders and you may proceed for paid sites submission.

Here few editorial paid directories you can consider

You may also recommend editorial paid directories through comments if I have missed any

Does paid directories are more responsible for a static url link and free directories are not?

RPD, thanks

Renzzy, Nothing like that. All are same, as you have keywords reflected on your static / dynamic URL and link juice travels to those link keywords to your content keywords and similar site information.

Best,
Jag
