    I actually don't know much about this. I think you should go for a Entertainment Portal site which can be much profitable for you. People like to pay in a popular site than a directory site unless it's free. That's my opinion.

    Scarface_007 were you planning a general web directory or a niche directory?

    I think you dont have to necessarily waste your time on directories. lets take a more practical approach by asking ourselves a question - Do we actually browse directories to find sites belonging to the niche we like? Everyone likes to find things their own way and bump into them.. Unless you opening a roleplaying forum, wasting time, efforts and money on directory sites would be a complete waste.

    Directories are not preferred now like they used to be. I think you are trying to do too many things at once. What you can do is focus on what's more important and work to get the best out of it and simultaneously work on other things but do not devote all your time to that only.

    I totally agree with LordRoco. People use Google to search sites than Directories.
