Thanks for your reply.
I wouldn't try to build a directory that doesnt add value to anyone. This directory (I'm selecting the links for it myself by doing deep research, rather than having people submit them) fills a true need in my niche, and there are people who should want to share this with their audience (as they have a problem this directory will solve).
In other words, Im not trying to build some random directory, but something that should lead to quality inbound links (if it doesn't, then I fail, but that's another issue ;-)).
I was simply wondering if...Google doesnt like directories for some reason - e.g. if you have a niche directory on your site vs. having a content (text) page on your site....and either one received the same number and quality of links.......Would Google allow the text content to help the overall site much more, than it allows the directory help the overall site?
In other words Im wondering if they might have some kind of filter.
I didnt really think so, but reading through this thread made me wonder just that, with I think 2 people stating, that you shouldn't call it a "directory" (b/c of the search engines).
