Thank You for your Suggestions:
There are lots of great ways to integrate a directory if quality is your goal.
It funneled a lot of traffic through my site and judging by the stats encouraged a lot of return visits.
I am taking it from everyone here that QUALITY is the main concern, so I guess here is my main question:
If you are somewhat limited by the amount of time you have, would you concentrate on having a directory, or on building a blog / articles?
I know that they aren't necessarily mutually exclusive, but if time was a constraint, do you have any solid feelings which would result in better SEO and return on investment?
The appeal of the directory is that I THOUGHT it would require LESS time than writing articles, since most of the content would be user generated.
However, I am assuming by everyone's very thoughtful comments that a directory might end up taking as much, if not more time, than writing on-site articles, since the quality of the directory listings has to be maintained.
So I don't know if the time spent on maintaining a quality directory would be more or less than that spending on writing articles.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
