Paid Search Listings?

Part of Patrick Mckenzie’s suggestions for giving the Mac Poker Software website a quick rise to Google stardom is to get listed in two search directories: JoeAnt and Yahoo! Directory.

It’s so long since I’ve since used an Internet directory, I forgot that Yahoo! started as a directory, back in the infancy of the world wide web.

To my surprise, you have to pay to be listed in these directories. JoeAnt costs $39.99. Yahoo! charges $299 per year, an amount that made my eyes pop out of their sockets in surprise, shock, and disbelief.

But it’s part of the strategy so I gulped loudly and frequently, whipped out my credit card, and went ahead. Let’s see, if I can get six extra sales from this strategy then the directory listing fees are covered. Seven extra sales and I’m ahead.
