There used to be tons of these online back in the day. I guess there are still a lot around and I wonder how many are still active or have been left to fend for themselves.
I’m talking about web directories. Those sites who list your site in a category for a small price or even for free.
Directories used to be a good way to show something of a site reputation (some even manually checked prospective links) and to gain exposure.
Is there any room for Web directories in the Internet today?
If you don’t know or remember what I’m talking about, take a look at Dirmania as a prime example of what free web directories can be.
