This post which is being updated  will give a list of great places to get free backlinks. Please feel free to email us to add any places we have missed.

1. DMOZ
NO LONGER WORKING.

2. Google Places
You have to have a physical address to sign up for Google Places.  With a Google Place page you can add a link to your site and add other information about your business. This will greatly help your rankings. Make sure you get satisfied customers to review you!

3. Yell
You can get a lot for free with Yell including a link to your site, though they will phone you up.

4. Google+
Set up a Google+ page for your business. You can add a link and connect with other businesses and potential customers.

5. Twitter
Make sure you have a twitter account. You can add a link to your site which will appear on your homepage. Social interaction is good for your website. But make it natural – don’t cheat.

6. Freeindex
The UK’s fastest growing business directory. For free you can have a link to your site, and add pictures, videos, business description etc. How high on the page you will appear, in your category,  depends totally on the number of good reviews you have so if you have lots of happy customers get them to review you and you will cruise up the list!

7. Facebook
Create a Facebook page for your business. Get customers and friends to like you. You can have a link to your site and do lots of other stuff.

8.YouTube
Video is the way to go these days. Why not create yourself a video channel. You can get another link to your site from there. You can also add lniks to your site in every video you do.

9. LinkedIn
Make sure you have a LinkedIn profile. You can add a link  to your site.

10. Craigslist. You can post a business description, image and website link. However, the post will only appear for 7 to 45 days depending on which city you post your add in, so you have to re-post your listing.

11. Net Mums is a good place to get a link to your site. I got a listing and link for free for a local ironing service. All listings are alphabetical. Only use though if your business is reasonably relevant to the site. Great for coffee shops, toddler groups etc.
