    Directory Submission is never recommended for several reasons

    1. the sites are full of links and no content
    2. the sites have got no direct traffic
    3. the directory sites never come up in search engines so may be many dont even get indexed
    4. they are spam sites.. a place where your site link is also listed along with spam sites
    5. the owners are no longer taking care of directory sites.
    6. its a social world now.. people want review sites on which they can give ratings and feedbacks also about every site

    It was? I've not seen a decrease in the number of submissions. What was 'seriously hampered' are the SEO's themselves. It has been fun to watch so many chase their tails though.

    Directories don't work for me, I prefer using only social networking methods.

    This is probably is a not a best way to get a links due to the high volume of outgoing links.

    Hey Mia,

    I don't think Directory submission has been dead. You should change some strategy on same. I suggest to do directory sub only on quality directory website whose moderators are active and they are not geving approval on wrong category.

    There are also other search engines like Bing that still take into consideration directory links when they rank a website. I use to get more visitors from Bing and Yahoo than from Google.

    I'd have to agree with this assertion. I believe the same still holds true to this day.

    If you submit your site in quality directories like white pages, Yellow Pages and Hot frog,then it is beneficial.

    Directory Submission can not be dead as long as Google is there.
