Web directories and the new rules dictated by Google
Until 10 years ago, a website could easily be visible on search engines by registering en masse on directories without paying attention to quality. The majority of directories were eventually link farms where a listing consisted of a link and a text of 255 characters maximum. Forget old directories like Solocal Yellow Pages Professional or companies like Transatel, Iserba, Express Sfr, Amg or Kompas.
To date, these techniques are forbidden by Google and the registration in this kind of generalist directory strongly penalizes your web referencing. However, a professional activity can be listed in a professional directory 2.0 where the objective is to bring value to Internet users. On Cubelist, we have precisely this policy so that a publication with us is more than beneficial for your SEO and, ultimately, your visibility on the Internet.
Each professional listing has a descriptive text of about 400 words, the images are optimized by our team, and the hyperlinks are not over-optimized. We make sure that we respect the latest Google rules. It is now possible to choose the region where the activity is located. Internet users will thus be able to find you more easily through a local search (local directory).
Avoid as much as possible poor quality directories which, at best, will serve no purpose, at worst will inevitably degrade your SEO campaign. It is also useless to make volume and register your site on a 50ene of directories. We strongly advise you to register on a dozen professional directories such as Cubelist. Diversify your registrations on other solutions such as blogs on the same theme or on discussion forums.
