    Directories does not help with search engine ranking but pull your site down.
    Check how many broker links are their in your site.
    How many site's are operational,accepting free one way non reciprocal links

    It's very hard to maintain such a huge list to keep clean and running directories list into it. I've also few list of directories and I found that in every 7-15 days, 5-10 directories get expired. So I think, more than 40% directories are run only for one year and they don't renew their directories once it completes the first hosting year.

    So, I think, the OP list of should have more than 10% expired directory or converted to another category of website.

    It is true that it is difficult to keep a directory list updated. It is not true that 10% of the 16,000 directories are not expired... After spending a full week updating the information using automated and manual methods the information is current. I am doing more updates this week.

    We have been busy updating and manually adding directories to our web directory list. We just added the 17 thousandth directory listing to the list at Web-Directories.ws.

    We have reached this new number despite our effort to concentrate on quality rather than quantity. Oer the last 3 months we have deleted thousands of directories that were parked or otherwise dead. We attacked the listings in various manual and automated manners to clean it up. The information is as current as it will ever get. We hope that it will be useful to anyone looking for general, niche or regional directories.


    We research and add most of the directories ourselves. If we missed yours please we offer totally free submission at our blog.

    Wow the people behind this directory of directories have done a great job. Maintaining directories in that high volume must be a hard time. Keep the good work up.

    Web-Directories.ws has just surpassed the 18,000 directory mark.

    We have been aggressively researching directories. All sites are found manually. Over the last 3 months we have concentrated on adding regional and niche sites. At the same time we have deleted thousands inappropriate, parked or otherwise dead directories. We attacked the listings in various manual and automated manners to clean it up. The quality of our list is better than it has ever been.


    Our most popular is category is till the free directory list with 2700 general directory listings.

    Advertising is available. We hope to hit the 20,000 mark within the next 6 months. :)

    Congratulations, thats a very impressive number of listings! I just hope that you will continue editing the listings and make sure that the non-performing ones are constantly weeded out.

    Thank you.

    I will continue to be diligent in editing the directories. I have found that people prefer an accurate list more than anything else.

    What about thousands of spam infested directories you left alone untouched?
    I'm sure if you try harder, your list will shrink to 1,800 more less real directories

    Well guys, what are you waiting for, you heard the man, start build new useless directories now

    :rolleyes:

    Well, maybe criticism will make him work harder and teach him to recognize
    real directories and most important acknowledge the best amongst them.

    Sweet talk???
    There is nothing sweet in what I said not to mention that your present review
    doesn't make you look good in a first place and looks ridicules to people who are
    visiting our site and see your review as piece of crap made by incompetent jerk.

    No matter what you say about AMRAY Web Directory, one look at "More Info" pages
    with 6, that is six backlinks to their sites make them forget you and your review.

    Show me other directory "More Info" page that offers 6 backlinks to
    • listed site (2 of them)
    • forum
    • blog
    • twitter
    • facebook

    and that is in addition to another 5 backlinks
    • 1 from links page
    • 2 from "Rate" page
    • 2 from "Review" page

    for total of 11 backlinks to Joe Public sites where as other directory including
    DMOZ and paid Yahoo, BOTW and others give him only 1 backlink

    If you think that your "Not recommended" review doesn't make you look bad, then
    by all the means keep it as reminder of why AMRAY editors rejected spam you tried
    to submit to our directory.

    I told you once and I'm telling you again.
    Read and Follow our Submission Guidelines, submit your site, wait as long as it will take
    for editorial review and I promise you listing in AMRAY Web Directory.

    :)

    web-directories.ws brings the most webmaster traffic by far and is a valuable directory list. It out ranks other lists like directory critic, linksadmin, paiddirectorylist.com by 3 to 1 when it comes to webmaster traffic not to mention they convert very well for paid directories.

    I thank you for your efforts

    @fastreplies What is the difference between your 11 backlinks (forum, blog, etc) and directories that offer deeplinks. Is there added SEO value?

    1. Deep links take away juice from backlink whereas 5 backlinks to index page concentrate it
    2. Deep links benefit site when and if visitors visit that directory, link to site's index page put it in SERP
    3. From 4 backlinks, 2 of them to forum and blog may point to different domains which otherwise
    must be promoted separately but our users can use one stop shopping and promote their forums and blogs
    in addition to what they submitted to us. Call it added bonus
    4. Backlinks to twitter and facebook self-explanatory
    5. Not too many directories are offering deep links option in a first place not even paid.
    6. Having Deep links in a directory is bad idea to begin. Deep links belong in SE

    Did I mention that AMRAY is 10 years old FREE Directory?
