    Where can I find a really big list of free web directories? More than, let's say, 1000... Does anyone know a website?

    Most of the bigger lists are out of date. It would be interesting to get some feedback on how they compare.

    What I have found is that many of the free directories start off accepting sites but once they have enough content they stop and its pointless submitting to them. There are a few simple tricks you have to learn otherwise you waste a lot of time. Concentrate on the new sites but understand that there is a good chance you are going to get buried where no spider will ever find you or the directory master will dump your link to start up a bid directory or they will just forget to renew the domain.

    Now I'm in trouble but here goes. and not personal to the author just a view.

    In the current climate i would say 990 / 1000 free directories are worth crapola of the other 10 some may be genuine offshoots / neiche directories or a work of love that will grow and are credible.

    The others are no more than someones attempt at getting a directory up and running and nothing more than pointless

    There must 10,000 free directories all submitted to 10,000 free directories that would have more rattling bones than davey jones locker itself, and the only people who would benifit would be the people peddling I will load your directory to xyz directories for your $$$

    if you going to start a directory Spend your $ on a few good quality directories rather than 1000's of rubbish ones , look for genuine listings to add to this or you will just be another bone in the locker and wasting your time.

    The advantage in being in all of them is the fact you are advertised in 10,000 places. Your URL, Title and Description.

    Submit yourself to directories and its free - only your time is spent.

    I have noticed that you have this (.ask-dir.com http://www.ask-dir.com/) directory as free and some of the listings are search engine.

    But overall I have been able to find some great directories with your list.

    I see no benifit in being in 10,000 free directries nor no benifit in wasting my time submitting to them ( There are the few that are worth while ), other than that i wished google would put the broom through this pile of crap as well and would not be surprised if they do.

    lets see dim shady and mighty man start 20 or so of these a day after a while they have a big collection of rubbish that they can use auto submit to peddle artificial links or probably no better than whats just happened.

    Funny thing is dim shady can't even see people are probably already watching him. i will stand on my thoughts (if need be) alone and say they are a waste of time.

    If your building a directory build a directory, and charge even a small submission fee to start with, unless a neiche / offshoot of a ligit business your wasting your time.

    Lets say i wanted to open a burger shop and one day be a maccas, tell me how far i would get by opening my shop up and giving away burgers to every drop kick and hanger on that walked by.

    My business image is blown at the start then with all of the loosers hanging on for a feed i try and tell people, hey come and spend some $ with me, great burgers. not going to happen

    start in the manner you wish to operate and play hard or go home.
