A search engine says I have bad links, can I remove my listing?
Sporge reserves the right to list quality sites for as long as Sporge deems them appropriate and useful to its users. Sporge does not remove or add sites for linking purposes or for site reputation reasons that other directories or search engines may have as Sporge is an independent directory for its own users and not for link farm use. In general, Sporge does not accept removal requests if the site is of quality. A site that is no longer available or had a URL change would possibly be considered for removal at Sporge's discretion. Sporge staff reserves the right to not answer requests for removal.

Directories are a great resource for marketing your site to a variety of users. Traffic may come from the directory itself, or can come in the form of residual traffic from the search engines that crawl and collect data from directories like Sporge.com. The reason that the a link in Sporge.com can be so important is that directories are respected by search engines and each topic is themed around an individual subject. Having your site linked to in such a themed manner can add weight to a search engine viewing your site as an "expert" in the subject your site is about which can result in higher ratings in the search engines. Also, research organizations know the value of using human edited directories as a resource because of the accuracy in results. There are many link farms out there that can damage your reputation so stick with quality directories that review every site and reject poor quality sites. If you have a Web site, be sure to add your site to Sporge.com.
