If you are interested in improving the SEO performance of your site, in addition to unique content and on-page optimization (unique content, site loading speed, menus, etc) to improve your organic keyword positions, you also need links to your site.
Of course, Google recommends getting natural links, but most webmasters know that they are almost impossible to get if you don’t have a very popular site or if you are not an influencer, a well-known and followed blogger. For this reason, a good part of what involves the effort is to attract new links to the site, through different methods.
Directory submission is still one of the most important SEO sources of links, provided that those directories are clean, up to date, not with thousands of links. Here you can see the complete list of SEO web directories that I tested!
Directories are good because they have a lot of authority, and depending on the number of sites listed, some of the authority will be transferred to your site as well. Most quality SEO directories are paid, which is understandable because you need money to maintain a site. In this article, I will present some of the directories that I found and tested to submit sites.
I will keep this post updated as I add other sites to the list.
When you submit a site in a directory, add unique descriptions and be as detailed as possible
Even if registering the site in the directory will take longer, it is preferable to add unique descriptions and be as detailed as possible.

14 Years old Web Directory. But it really looks like a site from 14 years ago and doesn’t have SSL.
