Explanation of Matt Cutts Message

Link building through directory submission is not a novel technique rather it is being used since many years ago by most professional bloggers who earned with techniques to make money online blogging. However, this technique is so popular and widespread that now many bloggers have started making is usage illegal. It means that many bloggers and web masters submit low level stuff (articles) on different directories just to get a link to their blogs for free. This has decreased the worth of even legally submitted high quality articles.

Should I Use Directory Submission for Link Building?

After Matt Cutts thoughts on directory submission link building technique, it is certainly not effective for any of you (blogger who wants to earn through his blog or who wants to make money online blogging) to use this manner. It is because, it will be effective for your blog in any way rather it can decrease the value of your blog as some low quality article(s) is pointing towards it. So, staying away from article directory submission is better than being considered as spam. You can adopt other link building techniques to make money online blogging such as, guest blogging, social marketing, video sharing etc…
