I just saw this from Rand Fishkin of SEOMOZ on twitter-
"Sample size of 100 links from directories and Links pages: 82% are deindexed"

Seems like G really are trying to make linking a losing proposition..well unless you do it on G+ of course..﻿

So glad I invested in all these directories over the years.﻿

I think the 82% is now proving to be a bit high from a report I just read, but a lot of them are definitely gone.

One thing to consider is that the ones that are still indexed are probably safe (for a while at least)..﻿
