I have just run the new version of the PR update script through the entire directory list so all the PR values should be correct now. If anyone finds any that are not, please report the directory and I’ll fix it manually. Thanks to the people who commented on here to let me know about the staggered update!

I have just run our PR update script on both the web and article directory lists. There were 1,790 PR changes in this update out of around 3,600 resources listed. Looks like a big shakeup, I noticed that quite a few directories have dropped down in PR on this update.

ListLocalBusiness.com just announced the launch of a new network of local business directories covering more than 85% of U.S. markets. The network includes more than 60 websites, each one covering a specific, vertical business. Each website is organized on a geographic basis, and listings can be submitted to the required market page.
Listings in the directories are completely free of charge to the listing business. The typical listing includes:
According to Neil Street, editor of ListLocalBusiness.com, the long-term goal for this network is to establish each website as a significant consumer destination, aimed at consumers who are searching for a business or service in their local market. Unlike purely regional directories, a vertical directory organized by market allows for the inclusion of a deeper array of business-specific information and resources, to assist consumers. Each website already includes an articles section, and businesses can gain further exposure and linkbacks by contributing short, original articles. Future plans call for increasingly richer content to be added to each site.
Currently, more than 60 business categories are available. To see the list of categories, and to add a listing for a business, visit: http://www.ListLocalBusiness.com

I am proud to report that Directory Critic has reached another milestone today. We are now listing over 3,000 active web directories! (this would probably be 5000 if we didn’t constantly update the list) But the number of directories is not the only thing that’s gone up, we now list almost 500 article directories and there have been a total of 2,735 active directory ratings by webmasters!
Thanks to everyone who’s been using the site. As always, I am always open to suggestions on how to improve the site or make it more user friendly. So if you’ve gt any suggestions shoot me an email here or leave a comment on this blog.

Thanks for the people who have been emailing me letting me know about the recent PR changes that are currently taking place. This is just a quick post to let you know that I’m fully aware of what’s going on, and once things settle down I will run the PR update script on all the lists on this site.
Please don’t report directories for incorrect PR or email me about it. Most of you probably know, it takes Google a while before all the datacenters and toolbars show the correct PR. Depending on what datacenter you use, the results could vary by a lot.
