Web directories are websites that show different categories and sub-categories which contain user submitted websites. The idea here is that visitors can easily find websites in their area of interest.
Our role is to get the website we are trying to rank for in as many directories as possible. Now remember, the bigger the authority of a directory website the better. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t submit your site on less known ones, on the contrary it will add to the number of backlinks but it won’t have such a big impact.
LIST OF BLOG AGGREGATOR WEBSITES TO PROMOTE YOUR BLOG

How do you solve this problem? Promotion using blog aggregators is always a solid plan. By submitting your blog to different aggregator websites, you are promoting your content in front of thousands of different people – and if your content is truly good it will usually rise to the top – leading to even more exposure.

Take note of it on your spread sheet and remember to check back to see when it’s been approved. Once that it’s done, well, you got yourself a backlink on a respected website and won a few more points from Google.
