The popular Microsoft bCentral directory has announced they closed their doors to new business.
As of November 15, 2006 Microsoft will no longer accept new sign-ups for select Microsoft Online Small Business Services.
This means that those who were in the directory before, will continue to be there and be allowed to renew.
The WebmasterWorld community is a bit surprised and upset that the directory is going away.
But moderator stuntdubl said;
That was absolutely the worst directory to submit to in terms of usability - it was always in my top quality "bang for the buck" submission list though - shame they're doing away with it. It'd be nice to see something new and improved launched on the live domain.
Again, if you are already included, you should get renewal notices and ways to keep your current listings.
