I get a kick out of many new and some old directories out today. They have no cached pages yet webmasters run to them to submit. If the pages are not cached what good is it.
Another major factor is the directory design, if itís the 1990ís style with cached pages showing primarily the directories name itís useless to the submitter. The pages are not going to come up in a search related to the topic your submission is in. Look for directories with at least 15,000 topics cached, ďnot search results and add URL pages and other web litterĒ You also want a directory that has good and relevant descriptions to the topic your website is in; not primarily the directory title.
Look at the cached pages, are they showing a good concentration the of topic specific keywords? Do they have your topic cached? If not donít waste your time submitting. This cuts the directories that are truly worth submitting to just a dozen or so.
