I have ordered a website and in a week i have received more than a thousand letters. Almost all of the directories are general. All the other directories are free web directories, not reciprocal which is good. As they promised, the submission of directories took exactly 5 days. More to it, after the registration i have received a lot more letters... I am happy with the service and I think this will be good for the SEO of my website. Sandy,
