In order to test them, I have submitted my newsletter details to every one (apart from paml.com which seems to be working, but link to submit page doesn't.) The responses I have had so far are varied:
1. No response 2. A polite email confirming my submission 3. Immediate listing 4. An onscreen notice confirming submission and advising that entry to list may take some time.
I plan to revisit each of sites after one month and report back on whether I got listed or not.
Of course, I have no idea whether I will get any new subscribers from all this effort, but I made my entries in such a way as to be able to track source of any submissions that do arise. I will report on that too in a month.
Six of sites also accept postings of articles. This could be very useful, but in a few cases, it seemed easier to post than to read those which were already there! Maybe that was just me.
Nine sites also had a good amount of extra content which would be very useful to publishers of e-zines.
These are all indicated on BizE-zine web site.
Finally, I have ranked 33 sites in order of their Alexa ranking. This purports to measure site's traffic. I am not sure about legality of quoting Alexa figures directly, so I have simply put sites in order - highest traffic at top.
Is this list definitive? I hope not! I am sure that there must be lots more sites on Internet that could be included. If you run one, or know of one, please email me at mailto:martin@BizE-zine.com so that I can update list.
Similarly, if you have had any success with any of sites I have listed, please let me know - perhaps I can include a 'users comments' section on web page.
My next project is to do same thing for Article repositories ... but not right now - I feel a migraine coming on.
