Open Directory Project

If you read around the majority of the forums you wouldn’t think so with all of the complaining by numerous webmasters about the amount of time they’ve been waiting to have a submission reviewed.

I know of a number of submissions that have been reviewed and listed in recent months, so I’ll attest to the fact that yes, they are reviewing submissions and adding listings that meet their general guidelines.

Directory ListsAnd most webmasters just don’t get it.

They flock to these lists like moths to a flame and wonder why they get nothing in return but a bunch of spam in their inbox, or links that are never indexed by the search engines.

Well, let’s take a look at the directory lists’ characteristics and we might see why it’s a waste of time submitting to the so called directories listed there.

Ever find yourself working your tail off obtaining inbound links only to find yourself outranked by sites with less backlinks?

So you hire someone to perform certain link building services such as social bookmarking, link wheeling or 5k directory submissions and forum profile links.

You post feverishly in discussion forums which allow profile and signature links.

You do all of these things you see suggested repeatedly in webmaster forums, but you still find yourself outranked by sites with much fewer links.

Girl with ad board

I had an inquiry from someone asking why my blog was devoid of advertising. They went on to explain how many different types of ads I could run on my blog and suggested that I could make some extra money by blending in a few ads amongst the content.

The blog has always been a hobby and I still generally blog when I have a bit of free time or come across some interesting information or events that I think are worth sharing.

Funny how real life has it’s way of taking time from some of the things you’d rather be doing.

At one point the blog was neglected for a period of time and I didn’t realize that it had gotten hacked.

I’m sitting here trying to decide what to have for lunch. It’s an every day event that I’m looking forward to today with much more anticipation than usual.

It’s still early.

I’ve only had my second cup of coffee and haven’t really gotten the day started yet, but lunch is definitely up front in my mind.

I was thinking about the great sushi restaurant down town that serves some very creative sushi rolls that you wouldn’t find at a traditional sushi bar.

Then there’s a bar and grill across town that serves a mean seared Ahi Caesar salad. A fantastic portion of perfectly seasoned and searched ahi with a wasabi aioli sauce that’s just unbelievable. The Caesar dressing isn’t bad either

Why do I care so much about today’s lunch even though I’ll be dining solo?

I’m having a molar extracted shortly there after and have a feeling I won’t be looking forward to dinner this evening  with much enthusiasm. 😉
