    Dear Fellow SitePointers,

    Are the following sites good enough to get into LookSmart?

    I would appreciate your opinions as I don't want to waste $200 on each one

    and

    http://LitLinks.cjb.net

    Thank you VERY much for your advice.

    hhmm First link worked..... The amazon link would not work so i would run through the links and check everything is working...

    2nd link did not work...

    Are you actually running shops or just affiliate schemes ?

    For me I would rather spend $100 on goto than 400 on looksmart..

    Thanks for comments I appreciate your help.

    Links do not work because the redirection service I use is hopeless

    Many of the links in the directory are to affiliate sites and I have no qualms about that.

    What do you think: if most of the search engines are now going to charge us for ranking our sites, I'm going to list other peoples' sites in my links lists for free? I'd rather pack my site full of affiliate links.

    I've been trying to create sites with good content on the net for years now. But I'm furious that the search engines won't even dare list them now unless I line their pockets.

    The concept of providing a public service on the net has become anachronistic. Greed is the only thing fueling the net nowadays.

    What you have to think about is are you seriously gonna make that and a lot more money through affiliate schemes ? I wouldn't think so.....

    I would give looksmart and most payed search engines a miss for affiliate links and go with GOTO and free listings...
