What's the charge for listing a site in the Search City directory?

Prior to May of 2006 all listings in the directory were free. However, due to the rising costs of hosting and supporting the directory we now charge a yearly fee of $25.00 for managing links included in the directory after the first year of listing. All sites entered into the directory prior to this time are grandfathered in permenantly . Sites should be listed in the category where they fit best. If a site wishes to be listed in more than one category they must also pay for subsequent listings. Webmasters may also choose to use our multi-link listing if they wish to manage multiple links, for which there is a $50.00 yearly fee. Search City Link Prices

Do I have to be a member to suggest a site?

No, we will accept suggestions via e-mail for listings in our directory if you do not know or have access to all of the information needed to list a site. Please keep in mind that we receive a lot of submissions and we don't typically add sites that are received in e-mail messages, so the best way to submit a site is via the Manage Links page. If you just have to suggest a site via e-mail, you can submit suggestions on our contact page please keep in mind that you should make the appeal interesting so that it catches the eyes of our editors!

How does Search City support itself?

Search City supports itself in several ways.

First, we offer links to other reputable sites via Google Adwords in the main directory, if you visit the Value City Shops the revenue from that part of the site supports the directory. We also display Google Adwords ads in each of the directory categories on the site which helps cover the cost of running the directory.

Second, we do offer multiple submissions should a site fit in multiple directories, there is a charge for multiple listings. Prices are here.

Finally, we offer webmasters and site owners to feature their site as a recommended site. For a small fee, sites are placed in the Top 4 listings in a category. Details here.
