When building links for a .com targeting the US, you have so many options for building links…
- Blog commenting
- Article sites
- Social media sites…..
However for a specific country TLD like a .fr the possibilities are so constrained. Not only do you have to search for sites located in France but you also are constrained by the sites niche. It’s a double edge sword so to speak. Searching for French sites in your niche that offer links is like looking for a 4 leaved clover.
However, there are allot of directories! Most that I have found are very high quality as well.
Here are a few that I like
There are even a quite a few niche directories. If you are willing to search! The best way to find those are to do a back link analysis on your french competitors. You discover where they are referenced and you add your site there as well.
I have even found some social media sites hosted in france.
I also post on French DoFollow blogs however it is quite slim pickings to find one in your niche. I have put together a French DoFollow blog search engine with quite a few.
