Guidelines for "Other Search Engines and Directories" Area.
With the blessings of the Forums Editor Elisabeth, David and I have crafted the following guidelines for content within this sub-forum. In order to keep the forum area about what it initially was created for: discussion about established Directories and Search Engines not already "worthy" of their own area, we present the following guidelines for this section.
The “Other Search Engines and Directories” area of Search Engine Watch Forums is reserved for discussions about other established directories and search engines that are out there and that do not have their own area within our forums. Please refer to the lists below before posting about a search engine or directory in this forum area. If you feel we have missed any major directories or SE's not already otherwise represented, feel free to IM Dave or me and we may add them, as time permits.
We ask that if you have a new directory or search engine, that you place your announcement in the BETA Test area in order to ask people for their opinions. It is highly recommended that you take the time to create a formal introduction, and try to highlight why you feel the directory or search engine is worthy of introduction and discussion. Repeated links and/or seemingly “fly-by” posts will most likely be deleted by the BETA Test Moderator.
(Added 12/06) If you feel that your directory or search engine truly belongs on this list due to its traffic or user numbers, please IM Chris Boggs, David Wallace, or Greg Hartnett.
Our list of established directories includes the following: (note that DMOZ and the Yahoo Directory are not listed because they have their own area in this forum)
Arielis Web Directory
Best of the Web
superpages.com (updated 12/06)
Uncover the Net
V7N (added 12/06)
Wow Yellow Pages
Our list of established search engines other than those already represented with their own areas in our forums is as follows. Once again, please limit your topics to search engines represented in this list, or try the BETA Test area if you have a new search engine you would like reviewed.
Thank you for understanding this policy and adhering to it when posting at SEW Forums.
CB and DW. Moderators

Re: Guidelines for "Other Search Engines and Directories" Area.
Just a reminder, please read this thread before posting about a directory, and also before asking about directories to submit to.
This is the list that's been provided, so there's no need to add others to discussions. Others will be deleted without notice.
For other established directories that warrant being added, please contact a moderator, as indicated in the first post.
Note: As an update, we don't accept new search engines, meta engines and directories for review in the Beta Forum.
