Web Site Directories that I have been listed on:

- Google.com – No introductions needed, google is one of the two main search engines available today.
- Bing.com – Microsoft’s search engine, which directly competes with google.com.
- Ask.com – Ask provides a popular Q&A search service, which is also known as Ask Jeeves

- Slashdot.org – Here’s my Slashdot profile.
- Yashboard.com : This service has apparently gone out of business.
- AskIves – My blog site is listed at AskIves.com which is a question/answer style search engine. Interestingly this engine supports a voting style system for determining results relevancy.
- Blekko – My blog site is listed at Blekko.com which is a cool search search engine that weeds out spam, content farms, and malware. They have a smaller crawl of 3 billion pages which focuses on quality websites, including this blog. Furthermore, Blekko offers some very detailed and interesting SEO metrics for sites listed with them that should be of interest to any Web site owner!
PaperBlog– Sadly I have had to unsubscribe from this service, and they certainly didn’t make unsubscribing easy. Although in the past I liked this directory, I now find them to be more of a problem than a help. PaperBlog entirely copies each article you post, strips out most of your links and adds no-follow directives to those it doesn’t remove. The worst part is that the copied articles outrank your original article in google search results so you will no longer get traffic from your own work. When you let PaperBlog know about your blog then you are basically giving them permission to take your hard work to make the owners of PaperBlog money. If at least Paperblog would add a rel canonical link back to the article they scraped from your site, or if PaperBlog allowed the blog owner to easily remove the scraped article then I could see how they might be a legitimate service. However as things stand I suggest people stay away from PaperBlog.
- DuckDuckGo.com – A neat search engine that boasts fast results and less spam and advertising than other engines. I’m a fan!
– A well-known B2B Search Engine and one of the Web’s oldest business directories
- Friendfeed.com – This site is a RSS feed aggregator with a lot of potential.
- Gimpsy.com – A cool Web site directory that considers the Web a virtual library and that has the unique concept of categorizing sites not by subject, but by the services they offer. Gimpsey operates on the the slogan “Active Sites for Active People”.
