Metro Pet Supply Directory

What Is Your Name?
Jeremy

What Are the Ways of Getting Listed in Your Directory (E.G. Free, Reciprocal, Paid)?
Metro Pet Supply currently offers free listings. However we would always appreciate more reciprocal linking, but it is not required. If a site does offer a reciprocal link, then we give that site a feature listings that appears above all other free listings.

What Is Your Main Source for Entries?
Metro Pet Supply is a niche directory catering to all things Pet related. Most of the pet related sites that are submitted are mostly shopping type sites.

When Did You Start This Directory?
Metro Pet Supply has been online for about a year and continues to grow every day.

How Many Entries Do You Have in the Entire Directory?
Currently our pet directory has 338 entries. We are now averaging about 10 submits a day and are growing exponentially.

What Is Different About Your Directory?
There are many things different about our directory. The most important difference is that we are more than just a directory. We offer pet related articles, affiliate products, fun things, news and a newly established pet business section that is sure to take off. By offering so many different resources we give our visitors every chance to find what they need.

Do You Advertise Your Directory?
We currently do not advertise our pet directory other than the standard link exchanges and directory listings. In the future when we have grown a little more, we will advertise.

What Are Various Ways in Which You Earn Money From Your Directory?
Metro Pet Supply currently earns money through Adsense and a few affiliated banners and products. This is one area that will we are currently working on. We hope to provide product reviews of affiliated products, which should convert better for us. Also we are looking at a few different options for the pet business section including a membership section, but this is only on a drawing board right now. Our business to business traffic needs to increase dramatically before we could offer such a plan.

How Much Money Do You Make From the Directory?
Metro Pet Supply is currently on track of it's goal and plan for the year. We are just now seeing new growth at increasing speeds and should exceed our goals for the next year.

Did You Create This Directory Or Buy It?
We are currently using a free directory script call PHP Link Directory. It meets our needs fine. As we grow we will keep other options open for better software.

Have You Managed To Get Listed With Many Directory-Submitters?
I have hand submitted Metro Pet Supply to all the directories that we are listed in. We do not currently use Directory Submitters.

What Types of Directories Will Succeed and What Types Will Fail?
This is a great question. There are thousands of directories out there that offer nothing more than just a general directory. Something people can find at any search engine unless it's in a particular niche. In my opinion, directory owners will have to offer other resources on their sites other than just a directory. Picking a niche will also be a wise move to corner a market. Our site offers many resources but we do keep the directory as the main focus of the site. In the future I see directories that are in a particular niche and offering other resources like articles being the top directories and top earners.

What Plans Do You Have for This Directory?
Metro Pet Supply will always continue to add to our list of resources. We will be adding more articles on a regular basis, more product placements and more reviews. As for our business section, there is plenty of room for growth and opportunity. But our main goal to create more of a focus on our directory and the overall purpose of the site. Right now we just offer a hodge podge of resources with no clear purpose. Once we realize the purpose of the site and steer it in that direction, Metro Pet Supply will be very successful.
