Hi, Back links for the tutoring website can be from Yahoo site explorer and also from Google, its always better to have back links form your niche of business, but with high PR links.

I would think there would be plenty of forums and blogs related to your niche. Those are going to help with both driving traffic to your site as well as SEO.

Have you tried something as simple as short content; 4-5 tips that parents should know before getting a tutor or something like that. Then get in touch with those who blog in your area of business. There has to be a ton of blogs that guide parents through the stages of education, etc.

Make it really easy for the person who writes the blog. Provide the information in a format that would be easy for him/her to copy and use... of course, as long as the link remains in tack.

Give away your information to people who already have an audience... and make it easy for them to use your information. (Everyone get's writer's block and all that sometime) so you become a back up.

Hope this helps!

Just an FYI - the Yahoo! directory is $299 and is an annual fee.

Is it worth it?

You can probably get answers both ways on that. Personally, my opinion is if you have a business site that provides a decent ROI then typically the answer is yes to paying for the yahoo directory. If your site doesn't typically provide much roi, then I'd consider it a maybe.... but start addressing why 299 isn't a good value for you to purchase. The value of the link is dependent on how your site converts visitors into sales/revenue. If you can do that, then it is a no brainer as it has added value from a link development standpoint.

Stop looking for them and create your own. Write and submit articles and press releases to various directories that have high page rank. Make sure that you social bookmark every page on your website. Submit your site to directories (not just your home page, but also the other pages on your site - AKA deep linking).

There are other things you can do, but the above is enough to start with.
BTW - don't pay for the yahoo listing, it's not worth it. With proper SEO you don't have to worry about paying to be listed anywhere.
