The command “allintitle:webdirectory” shows those sites which have “webdirectory” word in the site title. Similarly the command “allinurl:webdirectory” shows those sites which have “web-directory” in the site url.You can change “webdirectory” to “internetdirectory” or any other keyword of your choice.
4. Visit various Search Engine related forums .In almost every such forum you will find some threads discussing directory sub-missions. Follow such threads — dig deeper if needed! You will be aptly rewarded with lists of many directories posted by members of these forums.
