As you may know, there are several thousands directories on the internet. The list
is now growing by about a hundred a week. Consequently, I limit reviews to sites that
have been around for awhile. Niche directories are more
likely to have younger sites, especially if there aren't a lot of good free ones to
choose from. Paid directories are held to a much higher standard.
Any directory that is obviously not SEO friendly does not get past this point.
Submissions for Free Directories
The review consist of a 2 or 3 rounds of submissions to different categories of the
directory. Once the original submissions have been approved, a second round is initiated.
In a small amount of cases, a third round of submissions is used. Directories are often
good at approving submissions when they are new but many owners lose interest in free
submissions over the long run.
Once a site is added to one of the "Best Web Directories" list, periodic
submissions are made to ensure that they are still approving sites.
The directory must be SEO friendly and score well on most of the directory
