I've been trying to promote my link swap directory over the past few weeks/months and I am now getting at least two new submissions per day. Despite high PR pages throughout the directory, traffic is minimal.
I would love for my directory to be more than just a place to get a free backlink, but to actually be trafficked for people looking for things. It's completely searchable.
Is there any hope for me in succeeding at this? Are there any directories out there (aside from Dmoz) that generate any substantial amount of real traffic?
Currently the directory receives a couple hundred uniques per day, but that's just nothing compared to the amount of traffic my site generates.
