Human edited high ranked web directory

Besides pinging various search engines regularly, another measure I take in order to boost my blog's PR is by listing them in various directories. However, not just any directory will do.

A lot of directories are free but in return for putting up a link on their site, some of them will send you an unending stream of spam emails to your inbox regularly. Other directories on the other hand might list your site along with sites with objectionable content - including hate and pornography sites. You might want to be listed alongside those site. Finally, to have the maximum benefit, you need to get listed in well established directories with high PR themselves.

One directory that fill the bill, satisfies all the conditions listed above is the Alive Directory. However, before you submit your site, you need to make sure that you fulfill their conditions. This powerful human edited web directory lists only quality, family-friendly, and spam-free web sites.

You have two options of listing your site, namely, as a 'Featured' or 'Regular' listing. The difference between the two options is that Featured listings are highlighted and will appear above the regular listings. Naturally you have to pay a little bit more to get a featured listing. On each category, you have a further option of listing annually or permanently. Compare the various prices before you submit your website/ websites for listing on the directory. Personally I feel that paying a one off payment for their permanent listing might be a better choice in the long run. I am seriously considering the Featured permanent listing (that includes 5 additional links) which costs only $299.95. It will be well worth the investment considering the fact that the Alive Directory has a Google page rank of 6 with Alexa ranking of 16,387.
