Content for Directory type Sites
- Join Date
- June 8th, 2005
I'm planning on building a directory type of site. Is it ok to just add all the sites that I want to my directory? Will this pose any problems? I have always wondered how other directory sites manage? Do they wait for someone to submit a URL before adding a site to the directory? If that is the case, then I won't be able to build a good directory and I'd be old and there might just be a few entries.

UKJ - I would think that any web master would be happy to get a link on your (or any) site.Peace,

Some people want any link.
Others don't want links from low PR sites.
Others want total control and get their links from a network of sites they own. They want to control the TEXT used to link.

I use this method to add content to my sites. I have both zeus and arelis, pros and cons for both. This means I actively acquire my links (I don't worry about links back - for that I write articles and submit to article directories). The most important part is THEME, THEME, THEME. If your directory is not tightly themed, then it is spam since anybody can buy a bot and scrape links for content. I also go to the extra trouble to visit each site - trust me, you want to do this or you will end up with garbage.
And I don't mean just simply organized, I mean THEMED. Also, I don't build JUST a directory site. It started out that way but then I began adding articles and other content. That seemed to work best - a site with a variety of THEMED content.Blessed Be,

A lot of directories start off giving Anybody a link (as long as the directory gets a link back). Then after the directory gets a little google PR, they start playing games -i.e. charging for links, changing direct links to redirects, getting Selective? about who they link to...
Directories like this have been springing up like weeds recently.
