    Most of them are. They all help so long as they get indexed and the links are direct.

    Pretty much any directory is worth getting into for the backlink, as long as they don't use redirects. And NONE of the other free ones take as long to get into as DMOZ, and none of the other good pay ones will try to rob you ($300!) for as much as Yahoo.

    THe reason above are nice to some but think about this.....

    You never know when a directory might give you traffic and traffic is what we all want. I know of a few directories that send a little traffic it's not much but if you convert one of those customers it's usually worth it.

    ^^ I agree. Directory can give traffic that may lead to a positive/probable client. An it is a good resource of back links.
    Good luck :D

    There are some directories that used to ahve high PR that are now PR 0. Those backlinks are unlikely to help much. I would find directories that keep listings in the correct categories and don't have a lot of empty categories.

    if you spend days to get into a dozen directories, it's probably not worht it.
    If you can get into hundreds of directories in hours, it's probably worth it. All directory listings help one way or other. Even for those google-delisted directories, they help your Yahoo and MSN rankins.

    They can also help you in the serps, which is more important than PR. Also MSN seems to count the directories more than Google does.

    I do have a couple directories that I get clicks from on a regular basis, however most of them are only good for links.

    directories are a must! great for building LP; they are good direct links that may help your PR, even if they don't send you hits!
