Web Directories & Search Engines:
You have to tell the world that you have a website online in order to get traffic from the search engines. The best way to do this is to blanket the internet with your link and listing describing your product(s)/service(s). The following directories & search engines are my own projects. These are great places to get noticed, but you have to be listed to be noticed. That's why it usually pays to get a paid listing for priority review because we have so many other links yet to review.
Top Sites Catalog.com
A catalog of top websites listed by rank in a variety of categories. The script responds to the Top Sites Catalog badge & traffic code link using either of the TopSitesCatalog.com or TopSitesCat.com URLs, and can also be modified to open in a new browser window. Top Sites Catalog is powered by the free Aardvark TopSites PHP directory script.
Premium worldwide web directory of real resource and information websites. Direct hyperlinks to real websites which do not spam you with advertising from other sites. Let's face it, if they are passing off your business to someone else, they clearly don't want your business or they are not capable of handling it. The Hyperlink Directory is a premium directory which only accepts paid submissions after human review. This means that the websites listed at Hyperlink Directory have invested in a quality, targeted traffic resource and have been found as a valuable resource by a real human being. Hyperlink Directory is backed up by the only other logical alternative misspelling of the domain, Hyperlinks Directory.com, and powered by a registered version of the php Link Directory script package.
A general subject, G-rated, family friendly, English language directory. This directory is for everyone of all ages. We do not accept listings that are unsuitable for any age group. Free, reciprocal and paid (featured) listings. There is a long wait on free submissions and we only list quality sites with well written listings, so please pay attention to the submission guidelines. We do as little editing as possible and often delete listings with multiple errors. Worthful Family Resources Index is powered by the php Link Directory software.
A website directory, a portal: DirPort.com. Are you listed? Remote voting code available for sites (requires free registration). A community supported directory portal. Dir Port is powered by a registered version of the WSN Links directory script software package.
Originally a G-rated, general subject, English language web directory of quality websites worldwide. Turkoc was search engine friendly, keyword optimized directory with direct links and support for Google XML sitemaps. It was a US based directory rejecting poorly designed, spammy, crappy, confusing and/or otherwise worthless websites. Free, reciprocal, paid & sponsored listing submission options were available. Unfortunately, the directory, though very successful, was powered by the Site Sift Listings directory script software which had been hacked by some malicious Armenian hackers because they thought it was a Turkish directory (I just liked the name, although I have since found out that it is a Turkish surname) and because the SSL directory script software is full of security holes (avoid it at all costs). We are currently looking into alternatives where we might keep the old Turkoc directory database by porting it over to a new directory software solution, but at the moment Turkoc is currently listing other web directories.
Although this one was also a general subject web directory for general audiences of all ages, it too was powered by the SSL directory script and hacked by crackers. Luckily, this one wasn't really started, I was still in the design phase. But I will be putting up a new directory powered by a much more secure software package, soon.
Search engine spider friendly, keyword optimized, link exchange directory. Reciprocate links with a large, categorized web directory. Inexpensive one-way links also available. Links are good for the life of the listed resource. Active listings requiring a reciprocal return links are checked regularly. If you fail to reciprocate at the URL specified at any reciprocate check scan, your listing may be removed from the directory. A growing business & SEO resource for quality link exchanges.
Free G-rated, general subject, English language web directory. Search engine spider friendly categorized listings. Add your URL for free. Exchanging links is not required though, unless you are running a paid directory or a link exchange that requires specific code, then we expect you will list us since we can't list ourselves (in your directory, not on a partner page). But ALL reciprocal links are very greatly appreciated. US Directory of quality websites.
Dreadnought manages to stay afloat through advertising, and some sponsorship, but it is essentially able to do so based solely on the reciprocal links it has built-up. We appreciate your assistance in promoting a directory which is dedicated to only listing quality resource and information websites.

Search engine crawler friendly, keyword optimized, family oriented regional business directory serving the city of Sioux Falls and the surrounding Sioux Empire area in southeastern South Dakota.
Directory for the city of Sioux Falls and southeast South Dakota's Sioux Empire. Free submissions for regional business listings. Affordable one-way links also available. A search engine friendly, keyword categorized, human edited, G-rated directory. The parent to this site (www.) functions as the gateway, but there isn't much there since the forum is no longer seeing use. But the directory address (.dir) continues to function as a community resource. Unfortunately for me, it is constantly spammed with non-regional listings. I need to fix it up a bit and start promoting the directory more. Another local directory is charging more than what Yahoo! does for directory listings and they hardly have any customers or real traffic.
The World Wide Web Host Information Directory offers listings for web hosts and related hosting, site tools, online promotion, webmaster resources and related information.

Directory of Directories:
DexDir is an index (dex) of directories (dirs) that is currently under development. It is powered by WSN Links and will have reviews and voting code for each directory listed.

Automotive Search is powered by Google through their cooperative search partnership program. AutomotiveSEARCH.net uses a defined pool of editor approved automotive and motorsports related websites to pull search results from, which allows for a true automotive search engine that isn't confused by others trying to corner the market on the term "auto" for automated link exchange programs and things which are not remotely related to the automotive industry. Volunteers approve only non-spammy related URLs for results.
Intended as an all-in-one internet and tech dictionary and terminology phrase book which would be cross-indexed as a thesaurus, we are still looking for a software engine to power this concept. If you know of one, please contact me and let me in on the secret. Otherwise we may eventually have to write it ourselves one day (someday).
