One of the most important ranking factors for search engines is backlinks. A backlink is when another website links to your website. The more backlinks you have, the higher your website will rank in search engine results pages (SERPs). One way to get backlinks is to list your website on online business directories. When you list your website in a directory, you are getting a backlink from that directory.
