However, how do directory owners treat sites that are primarily information/comparison sites that are monetized by affilate stuff? i.e., pages of content, but the content is intended to convert via affiliate stuff. Say a page that has 'product a features' beside 'product b features', with a buy now affiliate link at the bottom of the page.
Does those get discarded automatically? If so, other than a general 'quality' comment, any specific thoughts on what can make a difference in getting an affiliate site listed in paid directories?
If you think of it as a personal site with some affiliate links, that'll show through also.
In practice, there aren't many borderline sites.
some, delete all such applications on sight,
If it is a really informative site with affiliate links, most directories will be okay with that.
If its an informative site, and you've requested a featured listing, you'll probably get listed every time
However, a script generated site, identically in most material ways to the 100 that where submitted yesterday , would probably be deleted, straight away.
