    Hi all
    I created a new directory: web-directory-24.com. It is a general web directory optimized for mobile usage.

    Kind regards

    Have you thought about how to monetize the directory? Paid listings? Adsense? Banners?

    When I write this, the site has 177 links. It has no search function, which it could benefit from. It would make the site more user friendly. As it is now you have to click on directory categories and their subcategories to find what you are looking for. The site also lacks a map and therefore you can't locate a business based on its geographical location. Moreover it's difficult to know how many businesses are listed in every category. There is the information in the header where it's stated that there are 177 links. But there is no information beside every category that tell how many of the links/sites are there. The site would greatly benefit from adding this type of information. Regarding the listing types, there are both free and paid options. They are:

    Featured link (permanent, 24-48h inclusion): $15.00
    Regular link (permanent, 24-48h inclusion): $4.00
    Regular link with reciprocal (1-2 week inclusion): Free
    Regular link (6+ week inclusion): Free

    It should be mentioned that you pay for the paid listing options with Paypal.

    Hi MrKing01, thank you for your comments. I really appreciate it. I wrote the web directory code completely from scratch and launched it when the bare minimum was finished :). So yeah, it lacks some important features indeed. I'll be checking the search option first I think. In the meantime I added Adsense.
    Thanks again!
