    Default back links from directory

    Hello,

    I noticed some online gambling directories with pr=4 for example. But if I check a specific page such as dir/hobby/gambling/poker strategy/, pr=0.

    The question is if I get listed, I get a back link, but what is the pr? it is zero or small like 1 as it is coming from an internal page and not the main page.

    If so it does not seem to help much for my pr, does it?

    Alternatively is there a list of free gambling directories where it is recommended to get listed?

    Thanks a lot.

    Hello,

    Not only online gambling directories, but general directories will not have PR for internal categories in most directories. These internal category pages are cached and due to that all listing in category is of same theme so they becomes reputed theme based pages and links or listing in these categories helps you in keyword rankings.

    If you are looking directory listing for PR, it may help but not that much because directory listing helps in keyword rankings.

    Each directory link is good if you are getting from theme based categories, you get link with different title or anchor text, links from relevant theme or topic categories, links come from both old trusted directories as well as new sites (better mix). Directory links are permanent.

    Hello Jagan,

    Thank you but I am not sure to understand you 100%.

    Say there is a directory xxdirxx, pr=3. Say they have a category gambling and subcategory poker.

    The page xxdixx/gambling/poker has pr=0.

    So if I list there in the "theme" poker, I will have a back link from pr=0, so it will not count in my pr?? this is the question.

    First, PR is NOT what it used to be and not neear as important as search engine ranking in the serps (results pages)...and PR and serps are not the same thing.

    If you are linking specifically to boost your pr, or deciding whether to take a link from someone based solely on their pr, then you are not linking in the best way you can.

    I would rather have 10 solid links from quality sites, that match the theme (to and from each page) with the correct anchor text from pr0 or pr1 pages than to have 50 or 60 links from pages off-topic with the wrong anchor text from any old site with pr3 or pr4.

    In the end, the better chosen links with proper text from proper pages will do more in the serps then the hap-hazzard ones.

    Hi,

    From you post, i have idea that you are more concerned with PR. It will help in building your PR but if you are only concerned with PR, you need to get links from high PR sites.

    But as i have seen, that low PR sites ranks well as compared to high PR sites due to quality contents, links from all sources and well optimized.

    Here when i say links from all sources, i mean links from casino sites (theme based as explained by Rick) and links which include custom link acquisition, blog review links, discussion forum links, article links, press release links, quality directory listings, hosting marketing pages, social media links, links by link baiting

    Some directories can bring also traffic to your site, if they have good SERP for relevant keywords.
    Be careful: inserting links in directories that use the rel="nofollow" attribute is completely useless.

    A link is a link, It will still count as long as the page is cached/indexed by Google though the weight is not that much to boost your PR to a remarkable degree.

    Most directories will only help you increase PR and SERPs. However, there are some niche directories that get search engine traffic and some of those clicks make it back to you. Take a look at the directories in your niche then try a google search for some of the long tail terms on their page and see if they come up.

    You can distribute your poker articles in many ways:
    • Submit poker articles to article directories: A good start is Ezine Articles. These directories then make these articles available to online publishers who are interested in publishing such article. Submit your articles under the most appropriate category so that you get the right exposure. Some of these article directories are highly ranked by the search engines and even if no other webmaster chooses your article, it’ll benefit you if the directory lists your article.
    • Submit poker articles to email lists: Email lists too are a good way of distributing your poker articles although there you cannot customise your articles. Lots of duplicate content is generated, and theoretically it is not recommended that you have the same article on various websites. But I’ve observed it doesn’t really matter. Search on Google and among the top three-four places you often find the same article, written by the same author, appearing different websites and still ranking high.
    • Submit poker articles personally: This is the best way I think. If you think your article will add value to a publisher’s website, then you can write to him or her with some details about your article. Write a polite email, or submit the request through the contact form. You can even get just a small synopsis and let people come to your website to read the complete article.

    I think I did not formulate the question well. I should have said:

    What is the best way to find webmasters seeking to point to a source of quality poker articles. NAMES

    Exchange links with webmasters of sites that you would like to see incoming links FROM...

    When making the exchange, give them the defined criteria for the the link and anchor text that you choose.

    I believe the key word here is "criteria" because some criteria that has been sent to me has been less than acceptable - let the linkee beware . . .

    Actually Ziggy,

    If you are doing a link exchange and you do not like the criteria, anchor or whatever of the request, you have the right to not take the exchange.

    I am not very picky about the exchange if it is a regular exchange on a link page.

    But if it is a content page link, then I usually am. I will often let people know what kind of anchor texts I am looking for and I explain that the anchor must match the theme of the page the link is pointing at.

    Although some webmasters may not understand the reasoning behind this, but it is in THEIR best interest as well.

    Agree totally about your quote above.

    I have had made many requests for a webmaster to place anchor text within the text of my homepage, but then throw me on a crappy, buried link page of theirs in exchange - so you are right; I do not take the exchange.

    I get several requests a week. So I guess if I have any suggestions it is to make sure you treat the other webmaster with equal respect.

    Thanks,
