Submit your website to online directories
There is a great number of free web directories and web portals on the web that offer free incoming one-way links to your site on a topic-related page on the directory, i.e. exactly what you want. Submit your website URL to these web directories, which are basically lists of links to other websites organized into categories.
Start with these important free directories.
Our list of web directories guides you directly to the "submit URL" or "add website" page of each directory. In order to get dozens and dozens of free one-way links to your website, all you have to do is go through the list of directories, and fill out the URL submission form. With certain sites you might have to navigate to the appropriate link category that you want your website to be listed under, before the URL submission form becomes available. Just follow the instructions that each directory provides.
Also, please don't forget that submitting your site to web directories is only a small portion of a well-working SEO strategy. Please refer to our SEO resources page to learn more.
