I wanted to get others views, on the use of paid directories, and featured listings withing them as well.
Here are a few to use as examples that have been around for some time, and hold high PageRank, based on outdated toolbar export.
Do they help with your SEO efforts if you use them?
Do they help with increased traffic to your sites?
Is the traffic incremental or volume? (If you don't know the difference this thread may not be for you)
Are they a part of an integrated approach to marketing websites online?
Thank you for your help in advance!!
