    At present all the directories are following the same thing. It is not a legal thing to place other companies content in to our website until and unless we have a permission. Without company permission we should not add them to our website. This is the reason Google also facing some problems. We have to add the companies with companies permission only.Hope my answer will help you and all the best for ur Web Directory.

    Hi, you can't copy content from other sites, it's not a legal. But, if you have a good PR, you will have a lot ofsites in your directory. Good luck...

    Its depend on your content and sharing which you are doing on your website. I suggest you please provide in your website 'free submit links' and upload some software like antivirus, Microsoft Office and others as well. You can get the genuine traffic on your website and will get the good results hopefully.

    Yeah. In fact it's an advantage for them because it will add more exposure to them. I run a local directory site too and I get some data from DMOZ.

    To maximize it, you can contact them and let them know that you've included their business to your directory and ask if they have suggestion on how to improve their presence to your site. That way, you can build a good relationship with them.

    Use your on content don;t use copy content.
    If you use copy content if the site has seen after it will complaint to yours and your site will banned and panalised. So, avoid copy content.

    Like I said, company owners will be very happy even if the directory owner copy the content and put it on the site. Because it is not his content that he's promoting. It's the company owner's.

    The best people to ask would be the site you are looking to use the links from.

    Content of any website may be unique you shouldn't copy it. But categories, sub categories and layout can be matched to others. Best of luck
