There are a number of directories currently on the Info Vilesilencer Directory List who have broken components that are impeding submission, or navigation, of the directory.
I have a Directory Watch List on the forum which is designed to keep track of the directories who are unavailable or have these broken components that I speak of. Currently there are a number of directories that have not been fixed, so I am posting in the hope that the owners see this before I remove their directories from the list.
If a human user cannot navigate through your categories, neither can a search engine, and so your directory becomes essentially 100% useless. If you don’t fix your directory you are putting out a pretty obvious signal that you do not care about your directory or the listings in it.
The following directories have broken components, which I suggest should be fixed ASAP.:
http://blue.daffodil.uk.com/directory/ – 14/06/06 (pagination is broken)
http://www.skaloosh.com/ – 11/06/06 (pagination is broken)
http://www.addmylinkfree.com/ – 12/06/06 (category display is broken)
http://www.bzzu.com/ – 12/06/06 (category display is broken)
http://www.approvemylink.com/ – 22/06/06 (category display is broken)
http://dir.profseo.com/ – 29/06/06 (category display is broken)
http://www.cometweb.co.za/ – 22/07/06 (add url missing)
http://www.gten.net/ – 01/08/06 (categories broken)
http://www.a1weblinks.net/ – 01/08/06 (broken categorisation)
http://www.yourdirectoryonline.com/shopping/ – 14/08/06 (code corrupted insert fresh copy)
http://www.worldsbiggestdirectory.com/ – 19/08/06 (categories not showing)
http://www.freewebsitedirectory.com/ – 23/08/06 (broken captcha)
- I have included the date alongside, which is the date the directory was noticed as being broken.
- The reason the directory is considered broken is given in the parentheses.
The most obvious reason for categorisation not displaying/working is that the rewritten URLs are done incorrectly via mod_rewrite in the .htaccess file, so I would check that first as a fix.
If you feel that your directory is fixed or you are aware of other directories on the list who have broken components, please post here (or on the Watch List on the forum)
