    As of February 2001, NBCi says they will charge $199 to be reviewed for promotion from the LiveDirectory to the Top Sites Directory, NBCi's premier collection.

    Is it worth It?
    How searches are performed on this directory daily?

    Just a note - I believe they have a discount running right now.

    For the introductory rate of just $99 they'll upgrade a listing to the Top Sites Directory within five business days. The fee goes up to $199 after February 15.

    Is this a good deal?

    Well, I guess that depends upon how much traffic and income you think you might get from it.

    In my experience, NBCi has not been a large producer of traffic, even though I hold several top ranking positions there. However, they've been advertising like crazy lately - and if they stick with it eventually it will certainly pay off.

    Their main problem at this point is that they are presenting users with a three tier layer of ranked web pages. That's enough to make even the most savy searcher go ga ga.

    Hopefully, they will take a lesson from the recently failed Go.com and start begin presenting search results in a simple and easy to follow fashion.

    I think NBCI program is not worth right now. You'd better use this money in looksmart or yahoo submission, or other pay-per-click search engines.

    I'm listed in there. I get some traffic from it, but I wouldn't say that it is worth $99. But, perhaps it will be in the future...
