Directories

Building links should be a balanced acivity. The sources of your links should vary evenly between:

Directories
Article Directories
Forums
Blogs
Relevent web sites

With respect to directories, link acquisition should be at steady pace.

When considering directories, review the link from 2 perspectives: traffic and Page Rank transfer. Below is a list of some popular directories. I will add a review and comments to each directory over time. I will take the perspective of a telephone equipment supplier when reviewing directory categories.
