If it is free, it has probably attracted every scammer and spammer
on the Internet ... scammers hoping to get rich with no work and spammers
scavenging email addresses of "businesses" to sell at a premium.
Look at the ad sites and ask yourself: "Would I advertise with
these businesses if I had to pay for it? Would MY target market pick up
a publication where these ads would normally be found? Would MY target market
walk into a store where these products are sold?"
If the only attraction is that it is free, skip it.

Yup ... shameless flatttery works on me too :)

The links a site makes are part of their "content", and if you can get
your links in front of your desired customer, you can eventually pick
up a lot of traffic.
Sometimes it means building a special-function pages. For
example, a travel site would make some pages on travellling with children,
and child-friendly resorts. THEN they go looking for places to get a link
to that content. They do the same with pets, wheelchairs, etc. By splitting
you services to cater to sub-markets, yu can legitimately grt more listings
and more links. Divide and conquer!
