I'm doing the same thing right now!
Does anyone have any evidence that having a niche directory like that on your website (that does attract plenty of inbound links (from sites other than those listed, of course))...does, or does not help with SE rankings?
I didn't really consider this. If Google understands it is a directory on your site that attracts the links, could they think "oh..the links are there because of a (useful) directory, not because the person has written great content herself..thus she's not an expert, thus we wont give it a ranking boost"?
Anyone got any evidence that it helps a site rank if a truly useful niche directory is on it?
