Directory listings in Yahoo, NBCi, ODP, and Looksmart all feed Google indirectly. They mean a lot.
One Looksmart listing means a directory listing in MSN, Excite, AltaVista, and now I believe, in Amazon. These links/listings are special to Google.

The dogpile web catalog has been a great source of traffic. Not the paid goto or findwhat listings, but dogpile itself. Looking at their listings, it appears that if you have the product name in the URL as well as the title, this gets you ranked nicely (based on a limited manual check of certain keywords....Your mileage may vary.)
I must admit it is more for my benefit and anything. I have to go to the powers that be, and beg for money. They don't seem to think I need money to do Search Engine placement. I needed a full list of "problems" to get some money for submissions. *keeping fingers crossed*
Besides the PPC are there any other sites that are now requiring paid submission?
