|With what you are calling 'second tier' directories getting milions of page views a day, |
No they're not.
|and sending thousands of highly targeted visitors to the websites that pay to advertise on them, |
No they don't.
|as well as to those who are listed in the directory FREE of charge, |
They don't list for free.
|I think it is hardly fair to say that the reason for being linked to from a directory is for increased ranking. |
99.9% of the time that is the reason someone has bought a listing in a directory. Even Yahoo and MSN.
I think you have misunderstood my post. Are you talking about sites like Yellow Pages and Thomson Local?
