The directory was a bit thin: Because classes were listed by city, one page might have the title:
Widget classes in New York
And the description:
Find a widget class in New York.
While the page for Los Angeles would be the same, only with the different city name.
It has been no indexed for about a month or so now (I know I should note when I make changes to my site - it's a bad habit of mine that I often don't).
I hope it is clear what I'm getting at?
If I understand correctly, you are saying to more clearly define what each site is by segregating content. Is that correct?
..and the directory linking back to the widgets site again, maybe just the once, with a "you can buy high quality widgets here"..
I am thinking of doing that and then "advertising" my widgets eCommerce site on my directory site (with banner or other graphic ads). I am assuming that if I nofollow the graphic ad links, that should be ok?
