Today I stumbled across a new site called jobfavors.com and thought it was a good example of the problems faced when starting a large scope, directory style site.

It's a couple of months old, and it has hardly any content, and very few visitors. Unfortunately visitors won't come without content, and people won't bother advertising on it without any visitors! It's a classic catch 22 style problem that almost all new directory sites face.

The other little problem is the scope of the site, it is divided into 123 "metro areas", and has 36 categories, which means there are over 4400 possible pages! Even if there were a 100 ads on the site, most pages would still look completely empty.
