Blog Marketing – 20 Free Blog Directories Reviewed

A few months ago I was publishing a list of 55 do-follow social networks along with information on their Page Rank and linking method. Since it has been a fairly popular topic, I thought of doing something similar for blog directories.

On this page you will find useful blog marketing information such as the Page Rank, linking method and RSS features of all listed blog directories. Unlike popular directories such as Yahoo!, Business.com And Dmoz, blog directories are known for only listing blogs so use this blog marketing resource wisely and good luck promoting your blog!

Get Blogs

www.getblogs.com

Reciprocal Link: Yes
Linking Method: Do-follow with Anchor Text
RSS Reader: No

Comments: Get Blogs is just another blog directory that was built for the wrong reasons. These folks won’t list your blog unless you add a reciprocal link to your blog. Worse than that is having to pay for a blog listing. ;)

PR: 4
Reciprocal Link: Yes
Linking Method: Do-follow with Anchor Text
RSS Reader: No

Comments: Although A1 Web Links uses do-follow links, it requires a reciprocal link in order to get listed. Is it worth a listing on a PR 0 sub-page? I don’t think so but oh well…


Blog Rate Directory

PR: 4
Reciprocal Link: Yes
Linking Method: Do-follow URL
RSS Reader: Yes (No-follow)

Comments: I’m not sure what to think of this one. A reciprocal link is not mandatory but they say they won’t rank your blog if you don’t link back to them. They might as well say it is mandatory.

About Frank Levert

Born in Montreal (Québec), Frank Levert was first introduced to the Web in the late 90’s.

After attending college in Music Business back in 1998, Frank got his first marketing job broadcasting faxes from home for a Canadian book publisher. While fax marketing was fairly successful at the time, the popularity of the Internet was on the rise and it didn’t take him long before he got involved with SEO.

After much research and experimentation, his efforts paid off and he was asked to perform SEO as a freelancer. From that point on he never looked back, improving his Internet marketing skills while working on various projects in the publishing, pharmaceutical, market research, online gambling and software industries to name a few.

Twelve years later, Frank is now the owner of Levert Marketing, a home based Internet marketing company located in Hamilton, ON.

When not fueling on achieving new business goals or sharing his expertise on his Internet Marketing Blog, Frank enjoys hockey, music and spending time with family and friends.
