Getting traffic to new websites is always a hard thing to do. Waiting for a website to be indexed and to get a high position on Google and others “big” search engines takes months and sometimes even longer. However, there are some things that can definitely help you with receiving more traffic in your website and eventually getting it in a high position on Google and other search engines. The first thing is having a good website - well optimized, valid, made for spiders and much more. The second thing is getting a lot of quality backlinks, and one of “backlink” possibilities are directories. Finding a directories with high page rank (PR) is not very hard. But unfortunately, most of them do require payment for submission. The biggest and best two directories are PR9 directories DMOZ and YAHOO. Unfortunately, reviewing on those two websites can take months and sometimes, it might even take up to a year. There are many other free high PR directories but it is very hard to find them.
The general question still remains; what does a backlink really do? Backlink in particular will first provide you with traffic from that website. Afterwards, it will bring crawlers to your site which will make your website have a much better chance to be indexed by google or any other big search engine. Last but certainly not least, it will completely improve your PR which will eventually get you a higher position on search engines like Google, and it will provide you more traffic. Some researches showed how many links and what PR should they be in order to make your PR higher. For example, if you want PR5, you will need 101 PR5 links or 19 PR5 link. Therefore, getting a few links from web directories with high PR might improve your PR by a lot. Here are the links to some PR7+ free web directories:
