FBC is NOT a secret society, but it is exclusive and membership is only by invitation and limited to 100.
FBC has been created for the sole purpose of unifying bloggers that are proactive, dedicated and committed in helping each other to prosper on the blogosphere. It is not by all means discriminatory, as we will gladly accept those who will abide by this code.
If you are proactive, dedicated, committed, honest, pro-Google and willing to help other bloggers, then you definitely meet the criteria and deserve to be a proud member of FBC.

All of the directories still work and most of them have improved their Alexas/PRs. In other words, time is the best proof to identify good and quality resources.
