There are web directory lists and then there is Directory Test!
We don’t do anything different but as we are very strict with inclusion, you will only find quality web directories here. The kind that don’t list spam, actively review links, aren’t link farms, basically the ones worth submitting too. Yes, we have an eye for those kinds!
The main focus at Directory Test would be “Free Web Directories”, the one niche we all love! I remember the child like excitement when I came across the prospect of getting a free backlink, I even shooted back a thank you email for my first approval, V7N forums I think!
Free web directories are cumbersome to manage as monetary incentive is elusive for most and with time these directories become part of history. Directories might be alive, but the control room might be long vacated as I have seen directories with an unimaginable long review queue.
Don’t blame them, half of you reading this are most likely link spammers, “Professional SEO Companies” who would ‘manually’ submit anything and everything for a price!
The good news! There are still those gems that stand out and are worth taking your time submitting too and you will find them all at Directory Test, “The Web Directory List Where Only Quality Survives!”
REVIEW SPEED; Don’t you want to know whether your time is worth while?
With everyone asking for fast approving directories we thought that adding this information to the list would be interesting. We submit to web directories on a regular basic and track the time taken for reviews (approval/rejection) to the determine the ‘Review Speed’.
Understanding the ‘Review Speed’ icons:
means Directories with fast reviews (within 2 months)
means Directories with average review time (2-6 months)
means Directories with extremely slow reviews (6 months+) or ones that might not be reviewing free submissions at all.
means yet to be ascertained.
Note: To test the review speed we follow the simple process of submitting our own sites and tracking the time taken for review, Approval or Rejection. Every directory is assigned a different acceptable average review time based on their popularity (Alexa)
Funniest directory description we have come across, “You make submission to web directory I give pagerank and you give money”
