    I have a good idea for a business directory But I want to know is it profitable enough to pursue. It will be sort of like a yellow pages.

    You don't give enough info regarding the actual biz model of
    your intended business directory. You could earn zero or a mint depending on exactly what you have in mind.

    I would say there is in my country the biz directories make a killing and they do little more than provide good seo and high marketing (with adsense) budgets.

    I have several local business directories that I sell advertising space on.

    A local business directory with no precise niche or unique direction? Not likely to be much money there. Your competing with Google Local Listings, which is impossible to beat.

    I agree with RBseatown as your idea will not be a profitable one due to lack of a properly targeted niche.
