    Niche directories, other niche sites/search engines are the only low cost methods left. The web, over the years got abused by so many that the site publishers who sell ad space, shut everyone out
    by charging fees and/or using content management systems that automatically freeze submissions, so they won't appear at all, until payment is made - totally shutting down/blocking freeloaders, so
    the ease of getting free backlinks is almost impossible these days.
    SEMrush
    Its just a matter of time until freeloaders get the message... if they haven't already, they will.

    and every decent directory publisher knows this and will automatically shut you down, kick you out, block you, delete you or even take revenge against all spammers. Welcome to the age of technology plugins.....

    Following certain threads and plugging your bad advice isn't helpful - you need to stop this.

    As a professional publisher for 12 years, and owned everything from directories, article banks, blogs and now a search engine - I say that links must pass traffic to clients and be targeted to be of
    use these days. Years ago it was probably enough to have any link pointing to your site, but not now as its all about relevance and conversion for websites.

    If directories are targeted resources, then yes, they can be great for sales conversion. Its a case of scouting the web to find these websites, and perhaps the laziness creeps in and this is why so many start-up/early stage companies don't see the revenue. Its very sad that everyone seems to want the world for free, but free is an illusion and doesn't exist that leads to any major reward.

    Social media really is not effective if you do not have mass followers, and if
    you are not skilled with FB/PPC, then you will just go broke....

    Make Directory Submission more effective? How?
    Write unique and different content to each and every single directory website.
    If you done 10 directory submissions then write 10 unique descriptions for each directory website.

    Earlier there were authority directories like Dmoz and others. And listing your website to those directories was really useful in terms of SEO. But the situation have changed drastically since then.And directory submission has became an obsolete technique now.

    However local and global business directories are still good to give you leads as well as SEO benefits.

    As long as the directory has high PR and domain authority.

    No. Don't even bother. Especially don't pay for it. And if it's free, it's an even bigger waste. It could actually hurt you, as far as Google goes.

    Directories = waste of time

    In my experience even no-follow links are effective.
