Following is the list of Blog Directories and RSS Networks with feedback/comments and ranking. I’ve listed only very high quality blog directories/RSS Networks. All the useless/defunct/dead directories are in the last section.

1. www.technorati.com
At no. 1 is Technorati, it is still the best and most popular way to promote your blog. You can claim as many blogs as you wish from the same account. They have Authority system which they calculate based on various criteria. You can find more information on Technorati Aughtority from their website.

2. www.blogcatalog.com
Doesn’t accept new Blogs. You can claim as many blog as you want. They take ages to approve a blog if it is unpaid. It offers a widget which is a nice feature and can be on this website. Also accepts paid services to make your blog listed in featured blog for the purchased categories which is useless feature. I got more views with free listed blog than the paid ones.

However if you are desperate to get your blog listed there then obviously you have to sponsor a category and get approved immediately.

3. www.blogarama.com
Just Blog submission and not other services. You can submit one blog per account.

4. www.zimbio.com
Zimbio is a new concept, it is purely gossip website with big big pics of attractive women and in the background they have mix of blog and articles.

You can create your own wikizines but wait for ages to get it come out of draft state.

You can promote you posts and it gets indexed. The only cause of concerned would be duplicate content if you know what does it mean.

5. blogsworld.org

6. www.bloghop.com
Blog directory

7. www.blogdigger.com
Blog submission, a reciprocal link is required.

8. www.globeofblogs.com
