DirectoryIndex.com, as the name says, is a web directory. It charges $35 one-time review fee for listings and has already started making money. The script that the site uses will, in addition to building a category based directory, let you spider the URLs and index the inner pages as well, just the like the big boys.
Promoting one’s website on the Internet is probably is the most critical factor in the success (or failure) of one’s site. Getting listed in as many directories and search engines as possible is the most essential step one needs to take to market his/her website on the Internet. The simplest and fastest way to get listed is to pay your way through. Serious webmasters rarely hesitate in doing so.
A comprehensive Site Admin is built into the script to manage indexing, re-indexing, categories and listings. Stats are logged for searches. Admin has the option to set the spider to index anything between 10 to 1000 pages per site, or set it to zero for no-limit indexing. It can be set whether the spider can leave the domain to follow external links or stay within the domain. If allowed to leave, it can literally index the entire world wide web. Additionally, it can be specified what the URL should include or not include in order to be indexed. Domains can be banned for bad behavior.
Two separate search boxes are provided, the first one limiting searches to directory listings only and the second one searches for all the indexed pages.
DirectoryIndex.com is a premium domain name, meaningful and easy to remember. The domain would be worth in high four-figures for the name alone.
Over time the database will be a huge one. With simultaneous queries coming in from a large number of users, the load on the hardware is going to be substantial. Such sites are best run on a dedicated server – at an appropriate time.
We ourselves are developers and build websites for sale only. The site under current development is offered for sale at the price mentioned. As the database and traffic grows, the asking price will keep going up. So the earlier you buy, the better your deal will be.
