    I do not think, that directory submission is banned. I would say, that spammy web directories might impact your ranking, however valuable directories should be considered as a link.

    As above, Directory submission is ok but choose well maintained quality directories, Don't submit to the masses, Do over as many months but just as important, Keep it related to your website's activities / content.

    Best Regards

    It is not banned but considered spammy and don't worth to submit website to 100s of directories.

    One really standing out directory was DMOZ, but it was closed long ago.....
    There is no serious directory out there now. By serious I mean without spam/scam

    Are you talking about web directories or business directories?

    Avoid the submissions in bulk of directories. The best idea, select authority sites and avoid spammy web directories.

    it's not banned because directory submissions is an effective strategy in a off page seo.
    but try to avoid bulk of directories for your business.for good ranking you just put your business in 2 or 3 directories in a regular base.

    I disagree, effective strategy, no? link diversity, yes.
    and too much of any one source is very bad.
