Reliable site directories!?

  • Question
  • Updated 9 years ago
I once (around april/may) suggested my url with probably over 200 different website directories attempting to obtain extra traffic. Most of these directories list my website. However, NONE of my visitors have EVER come from these directories. Also, these directories appeared to be the SAME EXACT directory with a different logo, even the confirmation email was exactly the same.

Are the website directories actually worthwhile? Maybe the lists I came across of these directories were not! Does anyone have a list of REPUTABLE website directories that will actually contribute to extra traffic?

Whenever you can get free advertising why not take advantage of it?

Some pay big bucks and still can't find their site listed. If you're going to pay buy from a good, reputable company.

After your site get listed on one search engine it'll pop up all over the place IN TIME if you want it to or not. If you find a search engine you find offense contact them and ask to be removed (good luck).

On occasion I'll find a listing from 3 years ago. I leave it sit it's free advertising and if some one comes to my site they may like the new site better.

Remember if you submit for something free, you submitted.

Free advertising is FREE ADVERTISING.

the problem was wasting time, what I was indicating is that I've submitted my site to well over 200 (TWO HUNDRED PLUS) website directories and NEVER received any traffic from these.

that was back in April, I suggest to anyone submitting to website directories not to waste your time unless you specifically see that directory in many locations (google searches, yahoo searches, ask, bing.com, advertisements on websites you visit, etc.) on many different occasions.

I looked at Wiki... if in fact I got the one you're talking about... when I have some more time, I'll look further into it
