Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
Having had these two listings for some months now, I can't say I would pay $300 dollars to submit to the directory. Direct referrals are few and far between, despite my sites having great placement within the directory.
I haven't really noticed any residual effects from being listed, such as increased search engine rankings. It may have helped bump my PR up a bit, for whatever that is worth (not much, in my opinion).
