    Most of the sites that had ‘web directory’ lists are either gone or abandoned and never get updated, However, if you search for business directories plenty of recommendations by others ‘generally seo companies’.

    I`m not convinced that directories are still relevant today in terms of the global web. I imagine the directories for smaller communities would work fine, because they collect all the needed resources in one place. But for SEO I think that directories are obsolete.

    I think for new sites some SEO companies are using to help a little but for established sites i would agree with above.

    Hi,

    Glad to hear that! I’m sure they do, I get SEO companies suggesting listings all the time, maybe more than business owners themselves.

    Best Regards

    I think the results speak for themselves. I have personally listed on business directories and saw my SERP improve!

    In SEO it's about trial and error since we don't know 100% how Google's algorithm is, so I would suggest for people who are unsure of certain tactics to try it and measure the results.
