    yes but we are all to blame
    the people complaining about the quality of threads here should be the ones making new threads (I include myself in this)

    That's a pretty bold statement as well as agreement with that post.

    Whom exactly is 'they', that 'sucked what they could out of directories and are gone now' ?

    I'd love to hear this one.

    if you can't see it for yourself I'm not going to explain it to you.
    the evidence is in the same forum you are posting in.
    there are people who threw money at their directories to gain pr through templates, sitewides etc then reaped the rewards from submitters..until their high profile tactics brought it to the attention and google intervened and punished most of us
    you were here also remember?

    humm go try constructing a sentence or two that has some value rather than giving us more of your an0n gimp apprentice impersonation :rolleyes:

    You surely aren't afraid to name names are you? I am asking for names of those who you are referring to. C'mon, let it out.

    See, with remarks like this, this is how and where the forums go bad. There was no need for name calling. And to call humm my apprentice is extremely silly and childish.

    I'm not afraid of anything but I am not here to make you see what is obvious to everyone else.
    It's for you to learn what people did with directories leading up to sep 2007 not for me to teach you.

    And please don't talk to me about name calling and extremely silly and childish behavior either..
    Maybe you should have a little look back at your own threads for this?

    If humm can't take it he shouldn't give it out.

    Hello....

    Ahhh just like the good ole times eh! :)

    @Discover

    Dont forget that those people also spent thousands on the little guys that where coming up
    and new, and sponsoring templates was a good way of gaining TRAFFIC and also Sales not to mention
    PR that was just fine back then. Then One day Google flips the script and starts there No follow crap and its
    there fault? Why becuase others couldnt afford to pay attention let alone sponcer a template then cry foul...

    Come on you know better then me that thats bullshit... We only sponsored 1-2 templates at best but sure that
    the penalties where traced by the footer links in templates, with the sponsors getting slammed (penalized) and
    penalty dependent on number of templates they sponsored (the more they did the worse the penalty they got)

    so let me get this straight..
    you also think that there were no webmasters who used directories to make money quickly by buying themselves pagerank and selling it on and when google penalised their site they moved onto something else.

    like I already said that if you are so blind to see that this has already happened well its not up to me to enlighten you.
    open your eyes, read the past threads and maybe you will learn something for yourself.

    I think you will find that most webmasters who`s directories where penalised NEVER moved on and they still run their directories to this day. Me included

    they weren't setting out to do the little guys any favours
    they were out for themselves

    I have known for a long time that the practice of buying yourself pagerank was risky.
    google didnt do anything overnight with directories and if anything they let it run on so long that everyone was starting to think hey if he isn't being penalised then i'm gonna try.
    (I don't buy the argument that most people offering templates were doing it for traffic either)
    check some of the old templates and the anchors used..web directory etc

    thanks for the welcome back, seems this thread is way off topic at the moment, but it is also entertaining
