    You have been registered since 2009 and you ask such a question? Will you be back in five years asking what captcha is? :D

    Sorry, but had to bust your balls. Most people that have been registered for so long actually read the forum unless they are a bot.

    A niche is the industry your website is in. For example, you sell dog bones. Your most focused niche would be dog treats and then get more generalized from there. For example, dog treats, dogs, pets, etc.

    A directory categorizes websites by topic. Niche directories, using my example above, would only list dog related websites.

    For more precise information, search for it on Bing.

    It's pretty simple. You and a million other people are submitting to free directories. Many thousands of submissions are waiting ahead of yours to be reviewed. That's just the way it is. The solution is to submit to the newest directories that do not have a long waiting line or submit paid reviews. This is not something $5 from a Fiverr gig payment would cover.

    Most of your submissions will probably never be approved. Free directories get overrun with spam very quickly and many of their owners simply abandon them because they are not making any money from Adsense or paid submissions. Maybe if submitters would click some of their ads this would change, but most people submitting websites to free directories are too lazy to even click an ad. No profit for directory owners = few listings for submitters. Cheap is cheap and people mostly get what they pay for when submitting to free directories - nothing.

    The detail you wrote me is valuable and here one question arises that where we can get new directories (local and Niche) if we will have to make google search for that or there is specif site or blog where we can get it easily?

    directory critic and vmoptions.com have active web directory lists. the best way to find niche and local directories is to go to a search engine and type in whatever you need + directory. for example, search for a "dog directory" or "texas directory" without the quotes. you should find many choices. good luck.
