In an ongoing effort to keep supplying you with new directories here is another one that is UK specific. WURA is a UK Small Business Directory.
WURA is a free directory to list your site, but it does require a back link. The add your site form is quick to fill, and DOES NOT include one of the huge category lists that you always see on other directories. I hate those. There is a variety of categories though, and they even have a dating directory, Dating Directory UK.
One nice little feature that they have with your listing besides the basic description and link, is that it displays your sites PR. It also displays the number of views, and clicks your site has received from the directory. That is something I would love to see from Google. I use Xmarks as a Firefox add-on, and it does offering something like that when searching on Google.
UK sites only please, and take advantage while it’s free. I saw an option in the for where it appears they may be charging soon. Right now the prices is a big fat zero to list your site.

Free UK Job Boards lets you post your vacancies free for thirty days. This UK based website helps small business owners fill their job positions with out forking out the big dollars like you have to do on most classified sites.
UK Jobs Only
The UK Job Board allows only UK job listings. Any type of job listings are allowed, but the main categories are: Accountancy, Customer Service, Heath Care, Information Technology, and Sales.
After speaking to the owner I found that the site had been around for nearly four years, but with the recent change in economy traffic jumped up. That meant new layout, and actual listings! More people looking, means more people using their search function. Besides having a simple search form, you can also search by selecting the part time, full time, or freelance option.
If you are the employer know that submitting your listing will take about just two minutes. There is no registration required. All you have to do is put in your contact information, details about the job, and your done. It’s a simply one page form, and now would be the time to take advantage of it. That form is currently free to fill out.
Major problem with the site? No web usability experts needed:(

I’m sure many of you know by now using videos is a great way to market your site. Their fun, their viral, and can often make a deal. Simply putting your video on YouTube is not enough though. You have to optimize it. You have to make it visible to the major search engines besides just Google. You have to at least give it a fighting chance.
Tons of Others Competing Against You
So you got your video, and you’re ready to upload. Are you ready for the traffic? You probably don’t have to be. A common occurrence is that you will hardly get anything out of it. To make a video viral you have to do it right, you have to be competitive, and you have to remember there are others competing for that traffic as well. Have you done anything to optimize it for search engines? Most likely you are just hoping others will like your video.
