Will my citations be indexed?

Before we deliver any citations order, we submit it to multiple indexation processors. Although we do this, we cannot guarrantee a 100% indexation rate. To check if a citation is indexed you can use the Google search operator 'site:directorylink.com'.

Do I need a real/physical address?

The address you use should be real, but your business does not have to be registered there. If you are using a real address that you arent registered at, we would recommend adding a unit number to make the address unique and avoid NAP inconsitencies.

Some of my citations aren’t live - what now?

If you have some pending listings, this is due to the fact that directories are cracking down on fake businesses being submitted. Your listing should go live, so just check back in a few weeks by either logging into the provided email account or searching the directory itself. If you dont have the time, feel free to email us the report after 4-8 weeks, and we will gladly update it for you free of charge.

Will I get a report?

Yes. A detailed report with login details for every listing will be sent to you upon completion.

What is the turnaround time for citations?

"The average turnaround time is 10-14 business days. If you have ordered for many locations at the same time, it can take us a little bit more time. Should you need a particular part of your order back urgently, please get in touch! "

Do you provide citations in [country]?

We can provide listings in every country except North Korea. Please note that many countries have a limited amount of listing opportunities. We will refund you the difference for listings we can't create in your target country, should you over-order.

Do you offer citation clean-ups?

No. Unfortunately we don't currently offer citation clean-ups.

Can I have my signals order delivered across multiple URLs?

You may make multiple purchases of 200+ signals, but we do not allow for multiple URLs to be submitted in the same package.

What is a social signal?

A social signal is created when a user shares your given URL on their social media profile. This then creates a social backlink aka a social signal.

What is a drip feed?

Drip feeding is when you add social signals naturally by only creating a certain amount each day over a period of time. All our packages are dripfed over a minimum of 10 calendar days.

Where are the signals from?

The majority of the signals come from the USA, Europe, Canada, and Australia.

Which niches/types of URLs are not accepted?

Social Media URLs, Redirected URLs, Adult Content, Pharmaceutical Sites [supplements, pills, etc.], Gambling-Related Sites, Weaponry/Firearms, Hate and Violence Related Content

Can I use social media URLs?

No. We don’t allow social media URLs (eg: Facebook, Twitter, Google+).

What pages should I send signals to?

We recommend sending signals to both your homepage URL and any inner pages you're trying to rank or are building links to.

Is this a monthly service?

Right now, social signals are not a subscription, but you are able to order these on a monthly basis. Stay tuned on subscriptions, as we're working on this.

It’s been 24-hours, why haven’t I received any signals yet?

There is a set-up time between when you receive your processing confirmation email and when the signals will start. This set-up time usually takes anywhere from 24 to 48 hours.

I checked a social signals checker, why aren't my signals showing up?

Typically this is because the checker hasn't fully cached or registered your signal totals yet. There are also a couple of other reasons this may be occurring:

Your URL was HTTP, but you changed it to HTTPS mid campaign. You decided to 301 (redirect) the URL to another one part way.

Further, both Google and Twitter changed the way their buttons work. (Twitter was November of 2015, Google was in 2018.)

Those numbers are no longer publicly viewable, but you can read some articles regarding this below:

Twitter [LINK: https://blog.twitter.com/2015/hard-decisions-for-a-sustainable-platform ]

Google+ [LINK: https://plus.google.com/110610523830483756510/posts/Z1FfzduveUo ]

Is the content included?

Yes. We write a 400-word press release based on the information given at the time of the order. You will be given the opportunity to review the press release content prior to syndication during the mandatory review process. We will never syndicate a PR without your approval.

What's the turnaround time?

"Depending on your order, content will be sent to you for approval within 3-5 business days from ordering. Once the content has been approved, it will take no longer than 3-5 business days for the syndication to be completed."

How many live links do I get?

Our standard press releases result in 300-400+ live links, while our premium press releases get 350-450+ live links.

Can I make edits or retract a press release after syndication?

No. We cannot edit or retract a press release once it has been syndicated. It is imperative you are 100% happy with the content you approve.

What's the difference between a premium and standard press release?

The difference between the two is the syndication networks we use for each type of press release. Our premium press releases are syndicated to high quality news sites and feature a company ‘About’ section in the content. Our standard press releases are strictly for SEO purposes.

Is Google News syndication included?

Yes. Your press release will be syndicated in Google News, and we guarrantee the Google News inclusion.

Do I get to approve the content before syndication?

You will be given the opportunity to review and request edits to the press release prior to syndication during our mandatory review process. We will never syndicate a PR without your approval.

My press release wasn't approved for syndication. Do I get a refund?

You will receive a partial refund for the syndication portion of your order. We do not refund the content portion of your order, unless it was our fault that the content wasnt accepted by the syndication networks.

Can I use your syndication service and my own press release?

Yes. We can syndicate a press release you’ve provided us, though there are no discounts for providing the content. Our standard terms will apply and we will syndicate the press release as you’ve sent it to us.

Which niches are NOT accepted?

Adult/pornographic or related content, Gambling/betting or related content, Medical/medical alternative or related content, Weapons or related content, Affiliate links that go directly to the affiliate offer (ex. ClickBank link or Amazon affiliate link), Websites flagged as hacked or unsafe, Payday loan or binary option content, Slanderous content.

It has been more than 5 days. Where is my press release?

In most cases, the reason for a delayed press release is that the customer has forgotten to review and approve the press release content we've delivered via email. Don't forget to check your Spam folder, just in case. Should you struggle to locate the email, or have already approved your draft, please contact support via our contact page.

Can I order in bulk?

Yes. We consider any order of 10k+ to be a bulk order. We offer a 10% discount for bulk orders, please contact us to make use of this offer.

Are your writers native English speakers?

Yes. All our writers are either based in the USA or UK. We recruit many writers who have university degrees concentrated in professional writing and rhetoric.

Can I request edits or rewrites?

Yes. Every level of content has an edit or rewrite option. Please contact us should you have an issue with your order, or have a question prior to ordering.

Are these real websites?

Yes! All websites in our database are there because we have tiredlessly committed ourselves to email outreach. We only use websites with plenty of traffic, good metrics, and healthy backlink profiles. We are committed to only bringing you the best links possible, and are always happy to make suggestions on the best fit for you.

How do I prevent duplicate links?

We have created a ""blacklist"" feature on our guest posting page (currently only available on desktop). To use it, you simply paste a list of all your backlinks. The tool then excludes any websites in our inventory that are also in your blacklist. And if that wasn't enough, we also manually check our database so you never place the same link twice. Should we discover the link you purchased is indeed duplicate during our manual check, we will offer you a full refund, account credit, or replacement link.

Will I get homepage links?

Typically, no. Some website authors may have their posts roll onto the homepage of their website as a featured article or widget, but typically the articles will not stay there. Most guest posts are published on the blog or inner categories, and are brand new posts.

Are these PBN's?

No. We spend a lot of time and resources making sure that we vet the websites we are working with very carefully. During this process we check the websites backlink profile, traffic stats, content, onpage, OBL, and many other factors to deem that it is indeed a natural website.

What is the average turn around time?

The turn around time of our Guest Posts can vary depending on the speed of the website author and our content queue. Typically your guest post will be written by our team within the first 2-5 days of the order. Once the writing process has been completed, we email the website author and ask them to publish your guest post. At this point we are at the author's mercy. Some authors publish within 24 hours, while others take 2 weeks. All of this being said, our TAT ranges from 5-30 days.

What niches are not permitted?

The majority of the websites we work with, exclude any content that meets the below criteria:

- Adult/pornographic or related content
- Gambling/betting or related content
- Medical/medical alternative or related content
- Weapons or related content
- Affiliate links that go directly to the affiliate offer (ex. ClickBank link or Amazon affiliate link)
- Websites flagged as hacked or unsafe
- Payday loan or binary option content
- Slanderous content

We do find websites from time to time that accept some of these, so please search our database carefully to see if we cover your niche.

Can I see the sites before placing an order?

We've dedicated many man-hours and resources to partner with all our guest posting sites. Therefore, sharing the database or websites prior to purchase would simply negate the purpose of offering this service.Further, it is not in the interest of our customers since the sites would get spammed if they were so openly shared.

Do you write the content?

Yes. The same content team that writes all our content also writes our amazing guest posts. You will receive a guest post of 600 words or longer, that was written in the USA or UK by our team.

Do I get a report?

You sure do! A detailed report will be sent to you as soon as each part of the order has been completed.
