WHAT CATEGORY OF WEBSITE OR LISTING HAVE I GOT?
Which Directory Group or Category should it appear in?
Consider carefully when deciding which Directory Group and Category Type you add your business or enterprise listing too. For best results and more enquiries add it to the most suitable and relevant section.
PLEASE NOTE: If your listing is for a DIRECTORY or for a collective of links, it must be listed correctly under DIRECTORY SERVICES. We do not allow directories to be listed in the general listing area. This area is reserved for single website and dedicated enterprise listings. We do not think it is helpful or useful when someone searches for example… a MOTEL or a HAIR STYLIST … and all they get on the first page is a long list of directories? If someone has a MOTEL or a HAIR STYLIST business to list, then this space is reserved for their individual enterprise promotion and internet marketing.
How do we decide if a website is a directory?
If a website listing is promoting more than one website, it is likely we would class it as a collective or directory. It would need to be listed in the directory category. If we note or it is brought to our attention that an existing listing is a collective or directory we will move it to the directories category.
If you have a collective or directory website or business to promote… WELCOME … please add it to Directory Services.
HOW LONG MUST I WAIT FOR MY LISTING TO SHOW?
All new Directory listings give you the option to Preview.. You can then check that all your details are correct and as you would like them to appear and then Publish, immediately. (RECOMMENDED) You will receive confirmation verifying the validity of your email address? (or is it in your spam junk mail?) If all of the requirements are adhered to and your listing is still not appearing after 72 hours, please NOTIFY US HERE.
All listings are manually added by the listing owners or their authorised agents or webmasters. It is YOUR OWN Directory Listing and you have full access to self edit and manage YOUR OWN details or ask your webmaster or technical assistant to help you.
As part of our anti-spam policy, we DO NOT ADD any listings or manage the listing contact information.
We do not import Database listings from other sources. The Combo Directory Network is your most dependable and safe repository of information to services and supplies. Managed and monitored by the Listing submitters and the Network Members and Moderators.

a) Did your email become inactive or out of date?
If at any time it comes to our attention or we get a notification stating a listing email is not responding to your contact form, does not exist, is inactive, unavailable, etc, then the listing will be removed. (but you can re-list)
b) Was your listing legitimate?
c) Was it later found/reported to be in breach of our terms and removed.
c) Did it redirect to a disallowed website?
