The end result we seek is positive and beneficial linkage resource for major search engines to find relative to our Users web sites. Presently we are unsure how either of these databases will perform once laden with large amounts of data. We look forward to testing both performance and promotional results.
How is this information useful to you in regards to your web site promotion? It isn't really. But now you understand a little more about Directories. The best advice I have to offer regarding use of Directories for web site promotion is simple. If someone visits any of our database sites six months from now and searches for your product or service and your web site is not there . . . Directories are like Phone Book. If you could afford to list your business in every phone book yellow pages throughout your state, would you? Your competition has. The same rule applies. Submit your data to as many Directories as possible. A good test for determination of whether you should submit your data to a specific Directory is right on form you fill out or front page of their site: "Is submitted data categorized?" Trust me, it matters a lot to search engines and relevant linkage. Adding your data to a jumbled list will have an adverse effect on your search engine rankings. Categorization performs relevance. Search Engines like relevance.
