    contactusa, i do love it as a huge list and have used it before, but lots of links are dead and parked pages, im not criticising, its still really huge, and im guessing its gathered automatically with it being so big.

    Those are links to internal pages (p1, p2, etc.) I am actually working on reducing them to sections to eliminate the number of links to about 10 or so. This is no big deal.

    I am also working on eliminating the dead links. Just finished removing the duplicates. Yes, the list is gathered automatically with a help of a spider.

    The whole concept was to have the biggest list possible but I will also try to keep it as clean as possible.

    I looked at your list and found the highest PR directory listed on your list is faked - http://www.romow.net/ a PR7 domain is not listed in google and only has 10 backlinks most likely the PR is from a 301 redirect before google update and is now redirected to the actual site http://www.romow.com/ which only has a PR of 4. You also have http://aviva-directory.com/ a PR6 domain which is redirected to the actual site http://www.avivadirectory.com/ which only has a PR 4.

    If this is your list you might want to consider checking for faked PR, redirected domains, or removing all reference to PR since it no longer is an accurate indicator of a quality directories.

    it's nice enough of you to share that list
    but what creed probably is trying to say; submitting your site to directories with redirect, rel-noffollow, no pages indexed etc is a waste of time
    so, for your list to have some real value, you should check them 1 by 1 and make sure they're all SEO-friendly
    that's the only way to build a reputation and so get links ...

    Update from Directory Critic

    After talks with the new owners of Directory Critic, they have today replied that advertising will be fulfilled. ;)

    Yes, I also caught that and removed them already. I will be working on having the list cleaned up further to remove dead links, redirects or fake PR. Hoping to finish this by the end of July.

    Thanks to all for your suggestions :) and sorry to vicdigi. I did not intend to hijack your thread. :eek:

    Yes, very pleased Pipes.

    In truth though, had the new owner done things the right way (especially with DC falling so far behind), there would not have been the need for this mess and my time chasing them! ;)

    A friend of mine just called me. He renewed his DC advertising today. But his original renewal date was the 17th of the month. So basically he's loosing 15 days. I wonder if the new owner will refund the difference. I am waiting another 10 days to renew. So if he takes my banners off now, I will not renew at all.

    Got to be fair...

    Directory Critic was excellent source of directories, and it was main source for directories to main own list on
    http://www.websitepromotion4you.com/show_all_directories.php
    Last months I was surprised with quality of new added directories in list and I strictly checked all directories from this list. I hope that change of owner returns back quality and right info for new directories in this list.

    daryllau - Not sure that we will ever find that out but reckon there will be 3 zero's in there.

    MeetHere - Have not come across the new directory owner but am sure s/he has visited DP directory category!

    Good luck to them. Hope they proceed to inject a new lease of life into the site.
