The only new engine that I heard about (that I can mention) at PubConference was Ankoo.co.uk. The chap running it (sorry, I have forgotten your name) was very keen and has good financial backing, so keep an eye out for it in your logs.

Good Stuff Bobby!

OK which ones give good PR ranking......

Guess this is what everyone thinks - but some of them (and all of them together) might give you a bit of traffic too.

Thanks a lot!

Quite a lot more there than I would have expected.

I notice that Mirago feeds quite a few of these. What is the best way to sign up to Mirago? I can only seem to get info on how to join their PPC program. Is there a way of just getting on the Mirago index without joining the PPC?

Now we just need to know which are organic, PFI, general, niche, high-traffic, low... :)

Any takers?

Thanks for the great list!

Listing in the UK Regional Section of DMOZ should do the trick.

Thanks Bobby Davro - your site is a great help, by the way. How do you compile the rankings when nobody discloses the data?

Also,

What is the best way to sign up to Mirago?

And here:
[mirago.co.uk...]

From my experience, don't bother with their PPC service, it just doesn't deliver ROI.

That's one heck of a nework of sites you have there. You are aware of the dangers of cross linking networks getting banned by the other search engines (i.e. Google), aren't you?

You currently have 50 domains all pointing to each other. It might be worth looking at, especially if you depend on traffic from the likes of Google.

The sites themselves look nicely put together though.
