    I invest ALL right back into my directories as i have alot of people
    that do work on them and my most important job is to get them paid for
    thier services on my network, wether its, mods,design,advertisers,hosting
    or whatever else i make sure those that work for me are paid on time for thier help.

    thx

    I have set my goal to reinvest 100% until i hit PR 6. At that point I will probably do 75%. I have invested much of my own money and don't expect it to payoff for a year or two.

    To me my directories are a labor of love...From the very little I make on my new directories I reinvest a 100 percent...then again I have very deep pockets....its all a buzz.

    Initially, the directory wont make money for first few months, so i pump in few thousands from my pocket, then when it starts giving revenue, i wait upto the time investment is recovered, when it is done, I let the directory go autonomous or self-funded. Whatever comes from it , goes into it, making it bigger and bigger day by day. :D :D

    I average about 130% investment but I am getting close to being able to start breaking even.

    Translation I invest 100% + approx, an additional 30% of my monthly directories income.

    More backlinks and trying to gain in SERPs.

    And I will do a redesign of the site soon, but that doesn't cost me money, only time :D

    The majority of mine goes back into various projects that are under develoment (although the most goes towards directory promotion) - i do, very occasionally though, indulge myself by buying a new gadget...
