phpLD 5 and 2013

2013 Software ReleaseAs a result, 2013 will be the year phpLD 5 becomes the main product we offer, and as people launch phpLD 5 sites, they will be entering a market that has seen some people pushed out either by DMCA or Google penalties and scare tactics. 

This year has been pretty tough, but in a way, maybe our industry needed to "clean up shop". Just selling "100 links for $10" with no quality controls was living in a bubble. That model is quickly going the way of the dinosaurs, and for many they would say "not soon enough"!

But phpLD 5 is going to have so much more to bring to the table so we can revive our industries. A few key points:
1. Business Listings incorporating google maps will sell reasonably well. Having the business name, address, and phone in multiple places helps SEO for Google Places, and this will be a great thing to push your sales.
2. Video directories (or categories within existing directories) are great because the videos have a high click through rate, and google loves it when you send traffic to Youtube, and rewards you with rankings and often pagerank too. We've tested this for a year and it is a good way to get traffic and rankings.
3. Picture Links we will be talking more about, but the click through rate is again much higher than traditional links, and is also a great way to perform well with affiliate programs. 
4. Late 2012 or early 2013 you will also see the coupon link type added, and that will be yet another way to work with businesses and get their paid submissions. 

And let's not forget that phpLD 5 is a HUGE rewrite making the script easy to update, build templates, and using the latest technologies and coding practices. We will be able to progress faster than ever before on the new platform with updates that don't require you to do anything to your template, and can be completed in a couple of minutes, not hours! 

One thing we have been doing almost every day for the last few months is sending out DMCA notices, and it really is working. People are either paying for phpLD or having their sites taken offline. As a result, the number of sites in the directory business has decreased significantly. We will be continuing to do this. 

So with fewer sites online there is more space to enter the market, and there is a new product that should do very well in that market in 2013! We are striving to do our part to contribute to the directory industry, and we hope that you can move forward into 2013 as a proud member of the directory industry!

Let's make 2013 the year we brought back the quality and let everyone know that directories are a force to be reckoned with!
