Anyway, I am at the point where I will need to begin using the pay directories if I want to continue. So I have a quick question.
I am considering paying for directories like business.com, joeant.com, goguides.com. However, I have noticed that the PR is low for the actual pages that my link would show up on. So for example, on goguides.com the page rank is 0 on the actual page where my link would show up, however goguides has a higher pagerank on other pages.
Will these links carry enough weight to inpact my pagerank? Or will it be a waste of money? I do not anticipate getting too much tangible traffice from these lists, so I would be shooting for impacting my links and PR with these paid directories.
Thanks in advance for the advice, and once agian great thread!

All links are good links, especially relevant links from a trusted source. And especially ones where you might have decent keywords in your clickable link.
Unfortunately, most directory listings won't give you decent keywords in your link, so keep that in mind also.

I've heard of many people who swear by Business.com as a great source of traffic, which is the bottom line.

Can you try going to www.google.com and enter business.com
All I get is
If the URL is valid, try visiting that web page by clicking on the following link: business.com
Find web pages that contain the term "business.com"
now try www.business.com and I get the same thing
now try http:// www.business.com
(leave the space out, I'm trying to make sure I am rul3 11 compliant
Jill, could you please double check my findings and see if you get a different result?
If I’m wrong Ill re-label my thinking cap ‘dunce hat.'

Since nobody is probably searching for it by url at Google, I wouldn't worry about it.

Then remind yourself that Google doesn't control the world anymore.
FWIW, Business.com gets their traffic from a lot more places than just the search engines and for sure more than just Google. People who use Business.com don't typically find it by searching for a phrase on some search engine.
As is the case anytime you're asking for or purchasing a link think Potential Traffic first, not PR or link pop. Which has been the consistent advice around here for as long as I can remember.

<qwerty beat me to it>
, So yes probably some sort of glitch,
i can see even their Pagerank is Zero, Which confirms they got caught in some minor hidden penalty and are back in index, It is just a glitch with the new google filters, New google filter seem to target links only pages, Since Business.com has lots of links pages might be some error happened with automated filter which removed business.com from index,
Anyway they are back in index that is what matters,
