    Hello everyone,
    I urgently need a list of directories that has good PR (Atleast PR 2+) and send comfirmation emails because few of them don't do it and i need it badly so please if any of you guys got a good list, it will be appreciated.
    I need 500+ directories but even if you got a small list, it's still appreciated as i can gather few small lists and make a big one.
    Directories must send comfirmation emails
    Thanks for your help and reading my post

    A large number of directories no longer send submission confirmation notices due to the submission services spamming them and using the confirmation email as "proof" of submission even when submitting an unrelated site to a niche directory.

    I've started blocking the IPs of repeat offenders.

    Pretty pathetic that submission services to do this to their clients.

    I totally agree with you and i myself prefer submitting sites to relevant category or niche directory except for trying irrelevant categories/niche directories because it's useless and no good for both submitter and directory owners.
    The reason why i need the list is one of my client need 100% comfirmation emails when i am submitting his website and i know that 50% of them do send so i need to do double work to get 100% comfirmation emails :(
    Well i think so i should start working on this list myself when working for this client by noting down the directories that send comfirmation emails :D
    Btw thanks a lot for replying

    Might be the best option. You might find yourself doing that anyway with the quality of any list found on this forum. They usually amount to nothing more than outdated and useless copy and pasted crap.

    Good luck

    Not sure how that will help. Many confirmations come weeks to months down the road after a real person finally gets around to looking at your submission.

    Quantity is a recipe for failure. Stick to Directories that actually get used then move on. And there are very few of them in any given niche.

    Most submission services use the submission confirmation as verification. This email is sent immediately after submission. We're not talking about the acceptance cnfirmation, which could never come.

    I am sure you are talking about Free Directories. A lot of Paid directories do send 'approval' notifications. I run a Free Directory, why should I waste my resources on sending 'submission received confirmation' emails?

    Well that's right but even if i follow a list given by anyone then still i will not completely rely on the list and will keep track of everything i do :)
    I am not talking about comfirmation emails to be listed in directory but i am talking about verification code sent to comfirm your submission and that usually comes within minutes.
    Yes i am talking about free directories... Well these emails are usually sent because they want to comfirm your email as anyone can use it for spamming purpose

    Hi,

    I am having the list of directories (more than 5000 with pr=>2) which will send you confirmation mails.


    Regards,

    I would suspect there are very few directories that send out confirmation letters which require a response. I suspect even fewer folks check the emails for the accounts they use for submission. I doubt that I check mine more than 3 or 4 times a year.

    Perhaps you could use screen shots of when the directories show what you submitted and ask you to confirm it is correct? Sure you could Photoshop something like that but if your client has that great of mistrust for you, you might need to fire your client.
