Best use of $299 for a website, by far. No serious site should not be in the Directory. Assuming you title your site/business something helpful, a clean Directory listing in the SERPs is a big advantage. If you title your business dumbly though, you'll get that dumb name as your Directory listing titlke which could be unhelpful in the Seps for the index page.
