Not every website is monolingual oriented, it may happen that one has to promote multilingual websites by means of link building. One of the basic resources for foreign link building are national or language-specific directories.
As usual, people abroad are more likely to use their own words for internet terms such as directories. The French-speaking internet community uses the term Annuaire and in the German-speaking areas they prefer to call a directory web catalog or web verzeichnis. A French link is a lien (Proposer un site) and in the German-speaking area this is called eine seite eintragen / an meld.
To make it easier for you and me, you will find below some lists with hundreds of French and German-language directories. Some notion of the language is required to easily register links in the correct sections.
