    For the last couple of days G get me thinking really hard with all local listing changes. There are some discussions on how this affects business listings, but what do you think about future of business directories?

    Various directories used to have very strong presence in local business searches and now most of them are gone. I'm not speaking of small sites - for the example search I just checked lots of big directories were pushed out - YP, yelp, kijiji / craigslist - all gone. They must be loosing lots of traffic now.

    Of course my concern is about my membership site / directory which is also gone from first page.

    What do you think? Is there a way to rank a directory nowdays? I'm thinking might be a time go city.site.com subdomains and create google place profile for each, well, it doesn't help ones I mentioned as they all have local subdomains.

    thanks
