Directory Editing Tip

Here’s a quick tip to save directory owners and editors some grief in the future.

Ir’s not uncommon for domains to expire and get snatched up by some one wanting to take advantage of the traffic, inbound links or PageRank.

The new content could be undesirable or even malicious and can really degrade your visitors’ experience. Linking to bad neighborhoods could possibly cause some problems with search engines.

All listings should have an expiration date regardless of the type of listing. At a minimum, listings should have the expiration date set to coincide with the domain name registration expiration.

While we recommend that listings are reviewed regularly, this will at least give you the opportunity to see if the domain is renewed or dropped.
