3 Free High-Quality Backlink Sources You Should Know

green check markA few weeks ago I asked if there was anything you would like me to write about to further assist you with your search engine optimization efforts. The first person asked for help identifying some more free web directories for obtaining baclinks. So I’ve taken a look and identified these three high-quality web sites that I’ve never mentioned on this blog before.

Manta – Company Profiles and Information for Most Types of Businesses

manta is one of the largest online business communities and company information databases. According to Compete.com they had over 14 million unique visitors last month. They offer a number of subscription levels, but you can still get a free dofollow back link using their free plan. Simply add your company information and submit its related website links. Submissions are usually approved or rejected within hours of submission.

CruchBase – Technology Companies and Internet-Based Businesses

crunchbase is the free database of technology companies, people, and investors. Allows you to submit your Internet company for free and include related blog, news media and web site links. Submission and company profile changes are typically approved within a day or two.

ResellerRatings – Online Retailers & Shopping Websites

resellerratings is an online community that has been rating and reviewing shopping websites and retailers since 1996. They offer reputation management services for merchants, but basic stores submission are free. Sites are usually rejected or approved within a couple of days and individual business profiles are often crawled and indexed by Google quickly.

Well I hope you’re able to take advantage of at least one if not all of three of the aforementioned backlink resources. If you have any questions about how or where to submit your website please don’t hesitate to ask me in the comments below.

And If you need an additional backlink with a little better anchor text, don’t forget to take advantage of BOTW’s 20% off coupon code. You’ll need to submit your site there ASAP because the promotion expires in just a couple of days.

    Hey Wes,

    Normally when I visit blogs I tend to see the same sites mentioned over and over and OVER again, so I was actually quite surprised when I started reading your post…

    I thought, oh finally a site I didn’t know about, then another then another!

    I am going to visit all of them, I am not very good with seo, so I will be popping back to your blog for some more tips.

    Sally :)

    As you probably already know, I started popping popping over to your blog a few months ago.. :) I find you very inspirational!

    Love your suggestions. Yelp.com is also a great place to list your local business. However they don’t allow links to websites at this time. Guess they don’t know they could always put a “no follow” outgoing link if they wanted to allow url postings.

    Hi Jon,
    Yelp does allow website links on the business profile pages. They are meta-refresh redirect links.

    Thanks for these backlinks. I have heard of Manta before but I never knew they accepted submissions. I’ll try submitting some links there soon. Thank you!

  • March 10th, 2011 at 10:27 am Wesley LeFebvre said:

    No problem, Jackie. With their old site I think it was harder to tell they accepted submission, but they recently updated their site making it easier to see.
