Jump start you’re blog promotion with RSS directories

RSS directories are still a free way to get exposure to your site as well as acquiring some decent category centric backlinks. There are hundreds of RSS directories one can choose from but I am going to recommend that you start with this list. I will add to this list as I find quality directories to submit to.

As always don’t overdo it and ensure that you have a natural mix of backlinks. Remember that RSS directories are not all created equal. So when you are looking for a RSS or blog directory you’re first focus should always be quality over quantity. With the recent Google Penguin update, its paramount to ensure directories are not your only type of backlinks and that your links always come from a well-rounded blend of sources.

When submitting your RRS feed to these sites try to make sure you use unique descriptions and avoid copying and pasting the same descriptions over and over.

With each directory I have included the Google Page rank and Alexa rank. I don’t put too much emphasis on these numbers but none the less its a convenient way to show you their respective qualities or value. These RSS directories are in no particular order.
