I am very pleased to say that moving our local directory was successful. We have over 3000 sites listed and new sites are being added daily. One of the curses of directories like ours are the spammers. On high traffic sites like this one everyone wants a link. I’m used to the Indian and American spammers, they are just a sad fact of life and we simply reject sites that don’t belong in the county, but we are now getting spam submissions from all over this country as well.
This morning I rejected 2 from Glasgow and 3 from Kent. Perhaps they think that their links will just go live, but I’m afraid they are mistaken. To keep it local every submission is checked. Of course we welcome Gloucestershire sites and you can submit yours free here and you can browse or search the directory here
