Draft of the Second Quarter 2013 Assessment Criteria

During the Second Quarter of 2013, I will be using a different set of criteria for my web directory reviews, hoping for results that more accurately reflect the numbers that people expect to see in a numerical assessment. By this, I mean that a good directory should score in the 80s or 90s rather than in the 60s and 70s, as was the case in my First Quarter reviews. I will set the bar high however, and doubt that any directory is going to score a hundred.

I also hope to simplify the process somewhat, and to focus on the usefulness of the web directory to the directory user, the idea being that if I were to focus on such matters as page rank and the costs for inclusion and placement, that would be a description, not of a web directory, but of selling back links.

Knowing that such matters are important to webmasters and search engine optimizers, I will be including this information in my reviews, but they won't reflect in the ratings.

This is what I have come up with as a draft of the new criteria. I would appreciate your comments as, once I have reviewed the first directory in early April, I will be locked into that criteria until the end of June.
