    So the list is basically crap lol.

    Thomson and Scoot will want insane cash for a basic weblink

    Scoot - £150 + VAT per annum (Basic Listing)

    Thomson - doesn't list prices on their website, but you can bet it will be expensive. Basic entry doesn't say if they'll include a weblink either, again you have to include it when signing up. They do say:

    But you can be sure they'll ring for an 'upgrade' or something hehehe.


    Both Scoot and Thomson are established and branded, but my experience with Thomson is you will be hassled with telesales calls from other advertisers.

    Conclusion:

    -- Not worth it and a waste of money.

    Are they all UK based directories? At least I know some of them accept links without limitation of countries.

    CanadianEh,seomanualsubmission

    You're welcome :).

    Some directories flagged as uncertain activity can be active directories, but, I prefer to skip them and submit to directories which have a certain activity and openly show their last updates.

    If you have a spare sim card, submit to Thompson. Basically, give that phone number as your number. Leave it on for 24 hours, then switch back to the old one. Did it, and I'm still listed :)

    Yup, ofcourse many give uncontactable phone numbers, but in all honesty, did you get hassled, and how many calls were genuinely after your services?

    Last time I used Yellow Pages UK (paper directory), I had 35 real enquiries and about 4 sales only.

    The rest was sales calls just flogging their stuff.

    That's very true, the SEO clients I usually pick up use their Yellow Pages budget on me, complaining about their sales calls.

    Oh well, their loss I guess :D
