The sites below are well-established general directories that have been around as directories for at least 5 years. Most of them have been around much longer. Along with our other criteria, we hope that you will be able to submit your website with confidence.

Directories are ranked according to the value they provide relative to their cost. Consequently, the top directories are not necessarily the best but rather the best bang for the buck. The "Best Paid Directory" list tends to include the heavy weights, very well-established directories. We also provide a couple of lists that rank more cost-effective directories, sites that offer regular listings for under $10 or $20.

The directory has been around since April of 2003 but the site itself has been in existence since 1996. The site does has very good search results in Google. They receive quite a bit of traffic (Alexa rank under 5000). You have the choice of paying $100 per year for review or paying a one-time submission fee of $240. This site would be ranked higher if it weren't for the high price. They do not guarantee acceptance and the fee is non-refundable. The site is respected by Google (see Matt Cutt's blog). During my research I consistently find BOTW listings in Google's search results. They allow you to list your major social network sites. They accept major credit cards.

A popular website that has been a directory since July 2001. Has a good design. One of the few directories that has enough traffic to send you some customers. They have a fair amount of authority links and have been around over 5 years. Submission reviews cost $40, which seems like a fair price. On the bad side the $40 fee is non-refundable.

They have been around since mid 2002. Listed in dmoz.org. Their category structure is a bit strange so you might want to skip this one if you don't see anything appropriate. I love their little hamster logo. $49 to have site listed within 72 hours ($20 is refundable if site is not approved).

To Submit your website select the region that best fits your website content, location and address. Categories are extremely well designed such that this is actually a pretty useful directory. Its only downside is that it is pricey. ****

A uniquely designed and original directory. The listings are original and pass copyscape.com. It appears that they their statement that "every listing is hand edited" is true. They do a light crawl of listed to allow them to display snippets of the crawled content in their search results. They also include an RSS feed of recently added sites. Submission fees are not refunded if your site is not listed. ****

The directory in it's present form has been around since the early part of 2006. A well designed site with unique categories and site descriptions. The original directory goes back a couple of years where it was a webmaster directory. The website has a popular forum, a blog, graphics, scripts and tutorials, giving it loads of unique content. They do not offer featured listings so your regular listings will have a chance of being displayed near the top of the category. I would especially recommend a listing on V7n for a webmaster / web design type site. ****
