After about 2 months of talking about it, I finally had some rate buttons and banners made for Directory Critic! You can view the new buttons on the Banners & Buttons page.
I’ve also whipped up a quick script that allows directory owners to create the custom HTML to paste into their directory. All you have to do is select which button you want, then select your directory from the list and copy the code. Simple. We server the banners from our site, so there’s no need to copy any images.
In other site news, I’ve been adding loads of new directories to the lists as well as making countless updates. Thank you to everyone who has been helping me out by using the report link next to directory listings to report any directory changes (like switch from free to paid, directory down, stopped submissions etc). When I get reports from my reporting bot, I make the changes within 12 hours or so. So this means the lists are really kept up-to-date. So thanks for that.
One more thing, some of you may have noticed a link has popped up in the main menu to my new webmaster directory. This directory is not offically launching until the 15th of June, but you can head over and check it out. I’ve just got a few more design, seo and category additions to do. Of course, I’ll be announcing it in all the usual places.
That’s all for now, happy submitting!!

Announcing: Free Web Index
Free Web Index (www.FreeWebIndex.com) is a paid inclusion Web directory launched earlier this year. The directory provides the ability for visitors to search and browse the links and resources available for free, and provides a service to visitors by including listings of the newest sites, as well as the most popular resources, available in the collection. Website owners can have their links added to the database for a small fee, using a simple submission process.
Websites submitted to Free Web Index can be included in a variety of categories, from Arts and Recreation to News and Sports. All categories are broken down into several smaller subcategories to provide more effective and targeted traffic to sites included in Free Web Index. As a service to visitors, and as added promotion for sites included in the directory, Free Web Index also provides listings of both “Latest Links” and “Top Links” from the resource library.
Free Web Index provides site owners with several low-cost submission options, including a discounted rate of $7.95 for reciprocal links, a middle level of $14.95 for regular links, and a premium level of $29.95 for featured listings in the directory, which are shown above all other listings. All listings are search engine friendly. Link submissions can be made through a simple online form found at www.FreeWebIndex.com.
Note: This was a paid directory announcement. Directory Critic is not affiliated with this directory. If you would like to reach hundreds of webmasters by announcing your new directory here, click here.
