    Hi all, can anyone give me any tips on starting off my new directory? Would it be good to give free listings and then charge when i have a good amount of listings?

    Best is to find a niche and load it up with select websites. After that I would hit up niche forums and communities to share your directory. Directories aren't that big anymore but if you work hard at it, I'm sure you could make some money owning one.

    Example: Dentistry niche. Have select dentists from major cities listed and then charge for *premium* listings. Hit up dental forums and email SEO companies that they may want to invest to get traffic to their dentist websites. Put ads on the site and profit.
