Paid Inclusion Directories

Paid Inclusion Directories are the most popular directories on the Internet today. Here’s why they are worth the investment – the pages in these directories are ranked well within search engines. A link from an important page carries more weight than a link from a page that’s not ranked well among search engines. Imagine if Google’s homepage linked to your web site. It’s one other factor in achieving top ten ranking for your web site.

The list of paid directories changes often, but here is a link to a web site that lists all of the major ones and includes details on each directories’ cost and recurrance of price (i.e. one time or annual fee, page rank of site, etc). This page was updated on 11-09-2011 but you can always see the updated list on the site below.
