Directory Submission

    There was a time when directory submission was dominating part of SEO. Nowadays nobody talks about submitting websites to the directories. Is directory submission no more effective?

    Hi All,

    Directory Submission is still effective for website. But We don't see the page rank of the directories if we submit our website on the good rank directories then its effective otherwise we may bear a loss. For Example, If our website page rank is 3 and we posted our website on page rank 2 directories then its not helpful but we suffer loss.

    yes it is! because directory submission creates a kind of buzz for your site or business online, which is very important for search engine rankings.

    Yes, that is true back then because you can spam your links there but now this method is no use at all. RIP DMOZ

    You will be wasting your time submitting your link in directories because it doesn't convert at all so try the other popular mediums instead.

    All those instant approval website are pure spam directories since no one reviews the listings.

    Now, there is a difference between editorial discretion (like DMOZ was and there are still a few quality directories) and those "accept anything" directories.

    I don't think directory submission is still effective. No one really even care that those directories exist.

    Well, lets say someone creates a new website. In your opinion where should people start getting some buzz about it? The Internet is not a fair or even thing for everyone. If you have enough cash to invest, you just use Google Adwords and you need nothing else. But, would you invest thousands or even 10s of thousands just hoping for the best?

    From my past 12 year experience SEO is a myth. It's all about getting people who are interested in what you're offering to your store (aka... I go to Starbucks because I want a coffee). A year ago or so, made a test with a few newly created websites, some were suggested to a few paid directories (BOTW, Business.com and a few more) and there was a positive ranking signal. Don't think it was a coincidence.

    A directory is nothing more than a collection of resources. If a reputable institution has a page with all the real estate companies from a specific are, wouldn't you like to be on that list as well?

    And DMOZ is dead as we know it, but the project will continue. :)
