directory submit issues

Has anyone ever had problems submitting their site to certain directories that require a reciprical link?

I fill all the fields in and then after submitting I'm told that my web page doesnt exist or they cant contact the server.
I also see this -

Warning: Smarty error: validate: validator id 'v_RECPR_LINK' is not registered. in /home/prop/public_html/pcgraphicsolutions.com/links/libs/smarty/Smarty.class.php on line 10

Any ideas? I'd like to find out how to get around it as some of these directories have a strong ranking. And before anyone says, yes, I've saved and published first and given the systems time to update and change.

This web directory is http://linkbook.pcgraphicsolutions.com/ if anyone needs to know.

Hello Will

I'm sorry that I will not be able to offer my assistance in this area as this is not my forte!

Our go-to-SEO girl is currently offline. I will send her an email to let her know of this post. I'm sure once she returns, she'll be happy to assist. In the meantime, I'm hoping that others will be able to come on and share their advice.

Hi Will,

That error says that they are looking to find their link in your public_html directory which you are not able to access. If you put a link to their site, it will just be on one of your pages. I am not exactly sure why they are searching for a reciprocal link there. I would put in a support request to this directory and ask if they are aware of why the error happens and if they are able to just search a page of your site for the link you have added. I did find a link to contact them: Contact.

I hope this will help.

Thanks Emmy. It was with a number of websites. I tried setting a link on numerous pages just to see, it couldnt even find my main index page. I will try to contact them and see.
