    its better you avoid directory submission where the google has stated there must be an average of 100 links per page and no directory is above pr6 only dmoz and others so you better focus on other tasks and build relationships rather than link building efforts for the website.

    Directory submission is not effective now-a-days, but yes if we do some quality submissions on high PR and authority site, it is definitely worth today too.

    Directory submission is not that effective like before but it is still useful. Now submission in bookmarking site is still an effective way, have a look at Folkd or akonter bookmarks

    Directory submission is still can not be ignored. They help search engine to index your site so just submit them by strictly following some rules,
    Submit directories with different description and title making sure you are not duplicating your description
    Use high PR and worthy directory site
    Do not stuff your keywords in description and title

    By promoting our website, directory is not a very effective method but shouldnt be given up. As my experience with my own website http://seirim.com/, I often use free directory submission, and they contribute 20% to the reputation increase of our website.

    There is no harm provided it is done discreetly, with matched relevance and preferably in niche directories. There are certain types of business for which content marketing or any other alternative method might not be feasible to adopt for a long term. Here directories gain importance.

    Have you used Directory Submission (Free, Paid or Link Exchange Type) and whether it has helped in promoting your website?

    Now Directory submission doesn't help to improve the ranking of your website, as Google declared most of the directory submissions as spam. Only few High PR directory sites are good, but they are paid directories, again Google considers paid listing as spam so even you can't opt for that option.

    Rather than wasting time and effort on directory submission, I will suggest you to do social media optimization, Blog submission, Socail Bookmarking ,etc.

    Many Seo people has stopped doing directory submissions because of the google changed the algorithm...doing only for quality page rank directories may be good.

    I don`t think Directory submission is completely useless. You can submit your website in highly ranked websites, still it will work.

    Are you talking about website directories or article directories?

    Nowadays, article directory submission is losing its importance because all the major directories are hit by this algorithm. (However many of them are recovering.

    As far as website directory submission is concerned, it is still effective if done correctly. It
    - Gives you considerable traffic
    - Improves your search engine visibility
    - Solid backlink (in case of a dofollow authority directory)

    All web hosts have a search engine submission routine in the control panel, end of mystery and myth of having to pay a company to list you.

    It is time that these companies packed up and moved on or started diversifying in to web development.

    ... and please remember to wrap code with forum BBCode tags:-

    If you can't think outside the box, you will be trapped forever with no escape...
