Each time I launched a new site, I had to hunt down relevant directories to list it in. This nine-year collection of useful link sources formed the basis for IncomingLinks.com.

Webmasters and website marketers prize incoming links for the traffic they bring, and their value in building a site's search engine presence; the more quality incoming links a website accumulates, the stronger the effects on its search engine rankings.
Niche directories are one of the best sources of these incoming links, but the task of finding appropriate ones is a painstakingly slow one.
Fortunately for site owners, there's now a site that tackles this problem. The IncomingLinks.com "Directory of Directories" catalogues over 500 niche directories that publicly state their willingness to receive new link submissions from relevant sites.
The site catalogues each directory by theme, and gives information on the most appropriate way to submit a link request.
"I've been building websites since 1996," said Edwin Hayward, the owner of IncomingLinks.com. "Each time I launched a new site, I had to hunt down relevant directories to list it in. This nine-year collection of useful link sources formed the basis for IncomingLinks.com."
The need to build incoming links has long been recognized by web promotion experts. Eric Ward, who has been called the World's authority on link building and who created the web's first service for building links back in 1994, said about IncomingLinks.com: "IncomingLinks.com has launched a fantastic guide and directory for the do-it-yourself web marketer who needs a place to start the process of building links."
The directory also offers a plain-English guide to soliciting incoming links and tracking the progress of link development campaigns.
