As an ethical SEO professional, I never advocate buying links. Paid directory listings, however, can be very beneficial depending on the directory.
One that I came across recently and I highly recommend checking out is Inc.’s Verified Profile listing where you can list your business with a short description, your site and your logo. This is nice high profile, high authority domain and it gives you a do-follow link – an SEO win!
Thought I would share this with my audience since I haven’t shared a lot lately 🙂 You can check what its all about and set up your profile here.
