Just realised lately that I seem to be over dependent on submission to web directory as a source of back links for my sites. I recently started a new site and I am quite determined to avoid submitting it to directories and then I will see how well it does in search engines.So far it seem to be doing very very well. Its currently on page 4 of Google for the keyword I am targeting. (But the keywords are also the domain name). Has anyone promote a site and achive cosisten number 1 without any directory submisison?
