Some sites will make you pay, some will try to make you pay
The way we see it is, why pay for submission to a directory when you being included is making their directory more popular.
There are many sites that offer a free business submission but then ask for their link to be placed on your homepage. OK, you may not mind that too much but after building a website and getting it just right, often after weeks and weeks of work, why clutter your homepage with external links that don’t match your design or fit in with your theme?
You’ll find plenty that will not charge and work just fine out there and that’s why we have compiled this list.
