Niche Web Directories
Web directories are an important component to search engine positioning. Directories come in all shapes and sizes, some are generic, while others are highly specialized. Directories, are defined as categorized topics or collections of information organized into a tree like structure where categories are used to define each groups association.
Being listed in a niche directory not only brings in targeted traffic, it provides a one-way link from a web site with similar content. Directories are generally highly ranked in search engines, and are considered well respected resources, two traits that are desirable in link partners.
While smaller directories that focus on a specific niche market might generate less traffic, the quality of the traffic from a niche site is usually highly targeted and will be superior to that generated from general search engines
