DirectoryCritic an excellent service

DirectoryCritic an excellent service

Directory Critic is a website where one can find free and paid web directories rated by people who have submitted to them so anyone can take advantage and submit their own websites to the best directories (or directory submission services could use them to build their lists)

Why should we care ?
I was browsing on one of my favorite webmasters forums lately and I noticed a thread that was advertising an 8000 free directory list giveaway. Since its free I thought I might as well give it a try. The number of the directories was by itself a big plus (8000). When I finally imported the list to my favorite submission program I discovers that withing the first 120 "entries" I tried to submit only 10 where really directories, most had vanished, other had changed to paid only, and others had become adult content sites. Not only that, but the ones I finally managed to submit did not send an email confirming the submission ...

Today I had the urge to submit to a few more directories but I would not try the long list of crap which I had already erased BTW, instead I copied the first 200 free directories from the directorycritic site and started submiting ... I submitted about 50 in a matter of 30 minutes; all were free and to my pleasent surpise almost all send an email confirmation back. I actually had one accepting the submission and listing my website in a matter of 15 minutes .... wow

Thanking directory critic and LinksInn
After such a good service I received; I decided that I needed to give something back to the directory critic and to in particular to the LinksInn web directory that was so fast in accepting my website. I actually went to give them a rating.

In my opinion the rating was unnecessarily long process which made me wonder if I would ever rate a directory again. I am not ungreatful at this great service, I am just wishfully thinking what if the details of my submission (name, email, url submitted, url where my site is listed) where sort of automated and just the actuall rating was available to us ? Lots more people I assume would go through the process of actually submitting a rating and in turn the service provided by directory critic would be of a bigger value.

Thanks directory critic

I had a similar problem when i was trying to submit my site http://www.spiralteck.com to free directories, most sites that claim to have hundreds of free list are not true expect directorycritic which had an excellent list
