Which are the top Directories accepting FREE submissions?

I've seen the Directory listing in DMOZ but it's not always clear which are free and which are paid.

Does anyone have a list of the most highly ranked FREE Directories?

All are free.

I think kctipton misunderstood your question. Or maybe I did...are you trying to find free directories to list in? If so, use google and the search term -free directory-even so, it probably won't give you a clear picture. If you are not commercial, then zeal is good. The dmoz is "free" however getting listed is an unreal expectation unless you are in a niche that some editor is interested in. If you are commercial oriented...it's "don't hold your breath" in the dmoz.

Although it's highly unlikely you'll find a "directories drop-fest" starting up here, I'd suggest using extreme caution and discretion in choosing where to submit sites and the rate at which they're submitted. What seems to be "free" can be very costly in the long run in terms of becoming associated with the wrong neighborhoods.

Claims and promises aren't always real, but webmaps are. ;)

The thing to remember is that anything good will cost you. Just be prepared to pull out that wallet from time to time. I don't think free will remain for very much longer, directory owners cannot possibly sustain the time and effort involved without charging.

Payment don't have to be a fortune of course, but expect a little charge - after all, you are going onto someone's website.... I've always been confused as to why great sites don't charge, passion? Get rid of it.

The only way I'd offer something free, would be to drive sales to something else. That's not wrong or underhand - just business sense!

As long as Iím kicking there will always be at least one or two free directory sources. The best submissions I get and that accounts for 99% of our submitted websites are free, not paid.
