This is our ultimate guide to free SEO backlinks. Just because we love you.
We’re not really an SEO shop, but since content is pointless unless it’s put in front of people who care, we’ve been compiling a list of people, places, things, directories, comments, etc. where we might distribute content.

We’ve decided lately that the more open we are about what we do, the more people like us, so we’re sharing our internal list with the world. What you see below is not the complete list. That’s a work in progress, and will be updated as we have time. Think of it as a work in progress, and feel free to contribute if you see something we’ve missed.

*Note: Some of the link locations on this list are blogs with do-follow comment links enabled. These fine folks are being generous, and you should not abuse their generosity. If you spam them, we will personally hunt you down and make you write “I will not be an asshole on the internet.” 500 times on a billboard in Times Square.

**Note 2: Some of these sources DO have “nofollow” on their links, but are listed as do-follow by SEOMoz’s Open Site Explorer. Others are no-followed, but can still be useful.

***Note 3: DA – Domain Authority, as tracked by SEOMoz, Mod – Moderated (yes or no)
