I started recently a new site. I think in December I found the Blogarama directory and I submitted my blog there.
Google Webmasters Tools shows 80 links from Blogarama to my site. I suppose they are nofollow because I didn't want to pay for a premium account.
That directory is somehow very difficult to navigate and I cannot find my content there.
My traffic numbers are below expectations so far, I must admit.
Google has indexed 560 pages and some images, but many of the pages are taxonomy archives. I use no-index and canonicals to avoid duplicate content as much as it makes sense.
Of course, there may be many other reasons of low traffic, but I am considering the possibility that this Blogarama thing does more harm than good. I am thinking about removing my site from there (if it is possible).
What do you guys think? Does anybody have experience with Blogarama or similar sites? Can they be harmful?
