    the advantages of web directories submision

    ts true that Ther's a trend among Seo experts to lower the importance of inbound links and reciprocal placement in web directories.
    Ok, so content is the new king - there are more related content sites that have a web directory/sites index with "add url" / "add site" options , with specified categories. A link pointing to a site from an index like that, can be strong and in fact relevant and indexed.
    The thing is if you have submitted your link to a directory in a site that deals with travel and tourism, but due to the fact that your site deals with beer related issues you have placed it under food & beverage categories (as you should have). but most likely these categories on a travel & tourism site have a low rate of visitors and search engines pick up on that, and give rank accordingly.
    On the other hand there are designated web directories were all the categories Cary the same ranking weight - as long as you don't use the same link description in all the directories (Google panelized a number of high placed ranking sites drooping them down as far as six places - for that reason) it is still one of the most reliable methods of site promoting-if Google has panelized sites for doing it wrong-probably ranks for doing it right.

    I have added some good directories in the list below

    It will be great to get some comments on them and their efficiency.

    I'm going to close this thread since we already have discussions on going about reciprocal links/directory links and their merit. Also, this list looks like it was copied and pasted from another source (incomplete at that) without that source being cited. If you post copyrighted materials at the very least cite the source but even better would be to link to it directly.
