Hey there,

I really like what I’ve read here and the summary list you made – well done.

I use the internet marketing tactic of free directory listing for directories of PR 3 – 8. I haven’t paid for directory listings mainly for budget reasons – if I can list with so many for free then I needn’t pay. And then there’s the comment of Google not liking paid listings so that’s fine with me.

I have a list of nearly 250 free directories that gets worked through. It does take a while but I have a friend help me and we just get it done. I do it more for the links to the site and rely on the main directories to bring me traffic.

Years ago I read that using those submissions services could do your business more harm than good as each directory has a different method for listing so a general blast wouldn’t be effective.

I agree that’s there are no secrets about internet marketing that can be revealed in a nifty e-book but there are some advanced tactics that aren’t generally talked about openly. I like having the ideas and advice condensed (why I like your summary) and read the latest Google explanation book to get a better idea of how it works.

To keep track of my internet marketing efforts I have a work diary that I write down what I’ve done that day and have a marketing database for tracking sites etc. I like things systemised to make it easier to replicate for new online businesses and update for existing ones.

All the best with your endeavours.
