Only if the adsence ads are placed to drive traffic away from the listings.

Why would anyone want to pay for a listing in a directory where adsence ads are placed more effectivly & doing better than your site for traffic!?

for the pr play.

I am thimking of starting a couple of niche directories. Its little hassle, and the motive is not adsense dollars, or dreams of granduer in the future.

Rather, I am interested in the linking. The directories would not have content. just links in categories.

The content would be on other niche sites, which do have adsense running.

Now I think it is more interesting to question the value of these links in the future in the eyes of the SEs. I am seeing a huge explosion of directories, and see only ontopic directories being of any use in the link pr game.

Imagine a 5 dollar fee for directory listing. Not reciprical. Or one dollar. Cheap. And perfectly feasable. But the owner of the directory has pr to play with .... hummm

thats what I find onteresting.
