I have a manually compiled directory - online yellow pages equivalent, 100% original content, took more than 4 years to compile. Earlier I got very little traffic from google, most of it was from yahoo. Suddenly, since the start of this month, the traffic from google has increased a lot.
I have done no SEO , 0 link exchange.So I dont think they are banning real web directories which take a lot of effort .
