Get a FREE Back Link From the HotFrog Business Directory is a free US business directory the offers a Dofollow company website link. This is an easy way to get a free backlink to your website, which helps with SEO. You just need to create a business profile and add your website link.


You can get more than one link by creating news articles under your business profile too. The more information you add to your profile the higher up in each category your business will show. You can read their optimization tips here.

Even though I consider this a lower quality directory, I do believe there is some link-building benefit to adding your website there. This is because whenever I add a businesses website, the newly created HotFrog business profile is usually indexed and ranking in Google search within a couple of hours to a couple of days.

However, If you don’t take the time to submit a thorough, well-optimized listing, then I don’t recommend submitting at all. You’ll just be wasting your time.

    Thanks for the tip on HotFrog Directory. It is one that I had not submitted our site to. I am amazed at how much information that they allow you to put into your listing at no charge. They sent out my first months “eyeball” numbers and I was quite amazed that 37 people had looked at our site and 2 had “followed up” by a contact I assume. I was able to put up several beautiful smile photos and description of porcelain veneers along with a lot of other descriptive information. the only thing that was problematic was it keeps saying that I didn’t submit my website even though I did?? But the website must be crawled because it is still in the info I submitted. Anyway, a nice site for a back link. Thanks as always.

    Hi Gil,
    Thanks. Yeah, HotFrog is always one of the first websites I submit to. Individual profile pages are indexed quick and have high Google PageRank if optimized properly.

    Not sure what your website submission issue was. I know I’ve had a problem using firefox in the past and usually have to submit listings using Internet Explorer.
