    I cannot see any harm with people listing their businesses in reputable directories. But to list your business in every possible directory you find on the internet will do more harm than good. A directory where there is no review and you can list your link easily, is probably blacklisted by Google. Having a link there can also penalize your business on Google searches.

    Try to find directory site with main domain only not with subdomain and using same structure and content because Google and other Search Engine will not count this kind of Directory Sites as backlinks even though they have high PR.

    To be honest with you I don’t really believe you should be submitting your website to directories for SEO value. It may have been a good practice years ago, but today I don’t really believe it holds a lot of SEO value.

    Just having your website in various directories could actually end up hurting you, too. Meaning, if they are from low value sites. A directory should really “nofollow” (meaning passed link juice) their links pointing to your website. The reason being is because your paying to be in their directory. Paying for a link to a site is against Google’s TOS.

    I would say niche directories that are highly valuable to your website is a better approach. Not that I'm really a big advocate of paying to be in a directory. I would much rather focus on quality content for my websites.

    I used directories to get the first few links to my site (some follow and nofollow). I was very careful about only choosing ones in my niche and where possible human edited ones to stop link spammers. This gave me the initial start for my site and got a little DA behind it as well as the beginnings of some organic traffic. It wouldn't be my only method long term as what we really want is some strong editorial links. However it got me off the ground and gave me a base.

    Social bookmarking submissions are more effective than directories but directories also help.

    Directory submission is place where you can add your directory of business.
    When you add the directory details at that time you have to add back link which is one of the offline SEO tatics
