    I got a list of high pr directories Pr6-9 and most of them charge from $5 - $50 to get you link registered.

    Is it worth paying a few $hundred to be on them due to their hight PR??

    Instead of paying for directories you may search free directories with good PR and money you can spent in buying good one way links.

    Yahoo might be an option.

    If it worth on other sites depends on the actually page PR and the no. of OBL. You also need to be aware that many will delete your link after a few month!

    they are still worth paying if their link is counted in google backlink query....like i own a few paid dirs and it's always counted in google backlinks.

    I think only Yahoo is good one, if you have extra $ to spend :)

    The homepage might have high PR but the page where your link is listed most probably won't.

    It's quite easy getting a PR0 pages on a high PR domain - so no, don't pay for it...

    2 sites I have experienced actually worth spending on are BOTW and Yahoo Directory.

    Never had much effect from the others.

    The domain with high PR do not mean all of it with high PR. If you do like to buy one link for you. you should check the page that your site will be shown. It is the key. Good Luck
