Advice on joining directories / link building?
Like most people, I want to drive *relevant* traffic to my website. In my case, with a new site under my belt, I'm eager to make steady progress but also concerned about doing it properly and avoiding any dubious methods of building back-links, etc.
Any advice on who / what / when / how to build effective back-links, and what to avoid? Are there any 'should join' or 'should avoid' directories for example?
Thanks. Hoping for some advice that can benefit us all.
