Who wants to be submitted to my website directory? All Yola users get free priority... but paid users whether yola or not will be listed first. The website directory will be scheduled to open sometime later today. I would like to open with links already available. Also... should I have a short form or have submissions through email? If I use Wufoo for free then I'm limited to 100 submissions.

A featured site will be listed on every page of the directory up to 100 links. After 100 links is featured, they will rotate every two days so that all featured sites are listed on every page.

If you have access to google docs you can now create your own forms and there's no limit to submissions. Quite easy to set up and it creates an excel sheet for you in your docs file.

ok... I've never used google docs, I'll try googling that unless you send me an exact url which will make it easier.

You need to sign up for Google Docs.
docs.google.com

You have your own domain? can't use a sub domain to subscribe to google docs.

If you wish to be a featured site on my website directory for free, please submit a brief description of your site. Preferably not to exceed 50 words. Include the name of your site, the category of your site, and if you wish, please provide a reciprocal to our website directory (published but not open yet) to http://thebestwebsitedirectory.yolasi....

ahh, donald i have seen 1 BUG problem

you need to put the listed site on new pages, listing 10 per page.

each catagory should have a page.

like that, it would be more orginised :)

well... it's going to be... the ones on the homepage are simply the "newest listed" and I'm thinking of reducing it to only 3... I'm in the process of listing them in categories.

because there's so many categories, it's gonna take a little while. I'm only going to create sub-category pages as I have a site to put in the page. But my works already cut out for me since I'm going to list my site You Can Never Be Too Smart on 32 categories, then I'm going to list yours on the sports, recreation page and more if you want me to... then I have Casey Stubbs two sites.

well, as time goes on you start to see that it gets hard to keep up, if you remember Yo Site. my old site directory i had to close it down because it took WAY too mush time to maintain & add sites. little bugs creep up like typos & its hard to find & corrtect.

yea... well... IF I am making money doing it, enough to live on... then I'll work 120 hours a week... I could care less how much time I have to spend on it, if it brings me my bread & butter... guess what... I'll work with it... but this is only something I'm doing to help others, I'm still working with my other site.

and yes, finding and correcting typos is a pain in the butt but they really don't matter unless someone notices them... at which point will probably be easier to spot them bc hopefully that person notified you.

Well... I'm personally gonna email companies that fit the description of my categories (that's virtually every company out there) and another thing, I'm going to allow MySpace Profiles - there's a lot of people trying to make money off of myspace such as selling their music cd's and stuff like that... I have 7000 friends and about 4000 of them make a business off of myspace... I can very easily advertise to these people... some of which stand to profit with more visitors... those people MIGHT consider purchasing a better listing... especially seeing how after I make my first couple of sales I intend on purchasing advertising space... this will do two things... get me more possible customers... and it'll convince the potential customers to purchase a listing bc most website directories don't advertise themselves... if I'm one of the few that does, that makes me worth purchasing.

I know this will be A LOT of extra work... but what if... after creating the website directory, I create a sister site that is for businesses with or without a site to list their business kind of like google maps offers. Too much involved?

Alex... you can also be listed up under more categories if you'd like. I'm thinking about giving Yola 2 main categories and a total of 8 categories... just a suggestion, rather than just the one category sports, recreation.
