Absolutely not! The key is to find directories that matter.

So how do you know whether a directory matters or not? Well, it’s pretty easy. The next time you visit a directory, ask yourself whether the directory provides useful information, or whether it exists as just another link farm. SEO is a big business and lots of people have slapped up useless, turn-key run of the mill directories that make no contribution to the web.

From the beginning, EatonWeb set out to become a model for how directories should be done. Our hope is that directories and directory submission see a resurgence in the years to come, offering both users and search engines useful information for choosing good web sites to visit.

For a list of our favorite blog directories, please see the sidebar to the left. Below, we’ve included our three favorite general directories:

1. Yahoo Directory

2. Best Of The Web
