qualifying for the NBCi LD advisory board....
________________________________________
As you may know, you are one of the LiveDirectory's most valued users. You and a few others have submitted more sites to the LiveDirectory and had more of those sites promoted into the main directory than anyone else. In recognition of this accomplishment, we're offering you membership in the newly formed LiveDirectory Advisory Board, an exclusive twelve-member group of users who know, understand, and appreciate NBCi's LiveDirectory and the services we offer.

If you accept the offer of membership you'll receive the following benefits:
1)Your personal bio or company description will be posted on the new NBCi LiveDirectory Advisory Board homepage.
2)You will be entitled to personalized responses to all LiveDirectory-related enquiries.

In return, we will ask you to act as mentors for other LiveDirectory submitters. As "expert" submitters, you may be asked to participate in LiveDirectory interviews to be published in our newsletter, and discussion boards on topics of interest to you and your fellow site submitters. We will also ask for your feedback regarding possible ways to improve the LiveDirectory.

The LiveDirectory Advisory Board [nbci.com] will be unveiled in the December....

One has a very nice Flash opening and states:

The Firm Name
has earned more in PROFITS
this year alone, than Amazon.com
has since its inception!

That has to be the quote of the year.

And wait til you see his cutie-pie picture!

(If he doesn't hurry and put it up there, I will send them the one I took in San Francisco...the one with the lady with the spike heels standing next to him on that Tenderloin corner! :) )

Dang my ears have been burning! Laisha, I sent them the company logo first and my pic later, so I guess they'll be adding it any day now. Unless the sight of my mug has them re-evaluating their selection...

Regarding:

< 2)You will be entitled to personalized responses to all LiveDirectory-related enquiries. >
I'm still waiting for a response to some of my questions. So we'll see how responsive they are.

BTW, how did you find the notification letter? I almost deleted it as spam.

Simple. We went through your local drive while you were at lunch. ;)

We knew you were going out to spend that raise -the one you got when you had the boss search on "women.com" (with quotes) on NBCi (that was a pretty clever ploy). You need to clear cache, btw, some of those jpgs will get you fired.

So the pages has been updated. But I'm still waiting for my personal feedback. We have so many sites listed that the "My Sites" page fails to load when I try to get an updated report on our keyword positions.

Just a guess tedres, was that picture taken immediately after you got the raise?

Yes, that's a flaw in their system. But I doubt they had the foresight to think of SEO-types managing mega-numbers of submittals.

I talked to a Snap product manager before they launched the LiveDirectory and affirmed with him that I could deeplink thousands of pages. He said sure, go for it. And though the My Sites page took a while, until recently it always loaded succesfully.

Sorry for getting too on-topic for a off-topic board. :)

That happens every now and then in FOO, though we FOO-ites try not to let it happen often... hurts our slacker image.

>I talked to a Snap product manager before they launched the LiveDirectory and affirmed with him that I could deeplink thousands of pages. He said sure, go for it.

I did the same with Snap, Yahoo, Go, and DMOZ. Snap looked at the pages, took time to review my explanation of how they might be useful to a "local" site within a portal, and said "OK." Yahoo said "maybe" while Go and DMOZ said "spam." (To be fair, some fairly high in DMOZ have since reviewed the site and said that I should submit again. I definitely need to do that.)

GO sidebar:
Given that the site has proven itself popular in NBCi, DMOZ says try again, and that Looksmart editors are sometimes adding the sites to their directory on their own, about 2 weeks ago I decided to give Go a quick test and submitted a total of about 50 pages under 2 states (these are individual town guides). This immediately drew protests from the local editors, I appealed once but it was declined. I mention this to highlight the different mindsets that the directories can have about deep-linking.

Amazon earned a profit? I never knew. ;)
