Directory websites can be good places to get your website listed. Many topics divided into subcategories ranging from colleges, world
cultures, art, etc... Most have low pagerank, as many seem to be created weekly. They can still be good to apply too, and some of the
larger directories have very high pagerank. Some are free, some have a startup cost, and others annual fees. Choose wisely, and you`ll
gain extra visitors, and an increase in your google ranking.
Here is a list of common directories that play fairly. I`ve found that many directories ask for reciprocal links to different addresses than
the directory website. A peculiar practise, and obviously a specific marketing strategy to improve the ranking of a mostly rubbish website
selling useless products. It also means that the directory wouldn`t achieve a very good pagerank. Stay vigilent!
