Are paid salon listings worthwhile (for seo)?


Probably not. Links from most directories carry extremely little SEO value due to the fact that those pages themselves have little SEO value so a link from them won't do too much for a website. However, if you're targeting a specific geographic region, these may be helpful if the directory offers categories for that specific geographic region and the page containing the link isn't full of links to your competitors.

  • Also, "Buying or selling links that pass PageRank is in violation of Google's Webmaster Guidelines and can negatively impact a site's ranking in search results." support.google.com/webmasters/bin/… – Ciaran Dec 8 '11 at 5:52
