Lately I’ve noticed a lot of clone directories and directory link farms are being submitted to Directory Critic. Here’s what I class as link farms or clones:
These type of directories have little to no value for the users of Directory Critic. In fact, that have no value to the internet as a whole. Many of these directories will go straight to Google’s supplemental index and never come out.
Another point to make is that if Google or other engines flag ones of these networks as a link farm and links to your site are consistent there is a chance that your site may also be flagged and it might effect your rankings.
So a notice to the people who are doing this, I know who you are, and I won’t be accepting any more of your directories. I have a script now that checks the database for other directories on the same IP, and it’s built into the directory approval process.
If anyone have any questions or problems with this email me
