Very true. I also see a lot of directories in the serps.
Even my rankings have been substituted by directories which link to me. Wow, what a great success. Don't show the user the site where the content is, show him a directory which links to content.
I can't imagine that anybody can see a sense in that.
Why would Google link to directories rather than to the content sites.
I have divided the Sitemap of my homepage in several parts. So I have files like sitemap01.php sitemap02.php ...
On these sitemaps I link to all the pages available on my site using the corresponding keywords.
Now these sitemap - pages which basically only consist of 100 links per page rank sometimes better than the pages which are linked from the sitemaps.
Of course the sitemaps are only linked to from my homepage while my subpages have several links from other domains.
So why would these sitemaps, which only consist of links rank better than the content sites?
