But think once, whatever link we getting through this process are worth full? Answer is No because most of the pages where we have inbound link either not index or not has page rank
Now you start thinking that pages getting index and page rank in the future then these in coming links are beneficial for us but you know how many pages getting index and page rank, just few.
Consider only quality websites not everyone, some common problem with web directories pages where we getting links –
1 – Pages are either not index or have zero page rank
2 – Sites don’t have meaning full URLS
3 – Redirection problem
4 – Position of your link is not fixed because they have fixed limit of display link in a page and if that limit is exceeded position will change.
5 – Domain expire in some cases
