    Overall, I think directories are out of date. I think your directory should be high quality,
    and it should be focused just on one niche, then it may provide some benefit, truth be
    told, there are a lot of quality link builders out there, why focus on just directories?

    Directory submissions are not effective for some reasons like most of them are coming from low quality sites and few are in premium account .

    Directory Submissions are still effective to rank your website high in the search engines. I have tried it several times and it really ranked the website to the top place in search engine.. if the Directory Submission have high PR that'd be wonderful then..

    Directories are an excellent way of pushing your site up the rankings.. All depending on the quality of the link, follow or no follow? High Da? So lets say 192.com for example would be an excellent directory great resource, high domain authority and they also provide you with a powerful follow link!

    It works, but you should get listed in high quality directories, because there are many low quality directories now that Google will consider spammy!

    If you really want the best directory , you need to very picky. Before submit its wise if you cross checking their reputation i guess. Maybe for some of you web directory not works.

    Check the List : Directory Submission Sites List
    i hope this can help you guys.

    Just stick with a few reputable and old directories. Submitting your site to as many as directories you find is not working anymore.

    Yes, it greatly works! If it is done correctly, then the results would be very much effective.
