Well, this seems to have gone wildly off-topic ...
I'm not really into the whole SEO rat race. I just like to keep up on the tricks the blackhats are using because they're terrible people. They use tricks to do various things to sites that rank above them for the same keyword terms.
Things like googlebowling, where they UnSERP a site.
Googlwhacking, where they sign your site up (like they're you) for all of these link selling/buying/swapping type sites.
Oh, and lots more things like 302 hijacking to steal PR. The list of dirty tricks goes on, and on.
My directory used to index sites of all kinds. Then, I got to see firsthand what tricks blackhats use because they submit clean sites to be indexed and then once it is, they redirect that clean domain to some disgusting pile of web poop that I would never in a million years ever index.
Anyway, my format is changing to index only sites that are web accessible because my site already is (and has been for several years). So, I'm not concerned with ranking for this term or that term, or what PR I may or may not get.
I don't care about any of those things. I just want to make life easier for blind and disabled people by gathering together resources they can actually use, all in one location. My new structure will have over 11,000 web accessible sites listed.
I've tested each one myself, one by one. Each has been tested against the WCAG 2.0 standards and graded A/AA/AAA and has been tested using a screen reader.
OK ... <steps down off web accessibility soapbox> I hope to see you around IHY (the seo forum). It's really a nice group of people over there too, and they're very helpful and know a lot about SEO.
