If your business operates in a particular niche or obscure area, then it is harder to obtain directory links. In this case, you can try more niche directories, or look at different ways to build links depending on what’s relevant to your business. For example, you could: Guest post on local blogs Actively post in forums Sponsor local events Get in touch with local influencers and collaborate with them Reply to relevant queries on Quora and leave a link to your website dor2dor.co.uk Setting up Google alerts for your business and your competitors can also help you spot potential link opportunities. The information above only applies to correctly creating and filling out both general and industry-specific directories. Although the number of links you get is important, the quality of the links and the accuracy of the information you provide matters more.
