    Only quality web directories can help your website's ranking.
    Beware those sites have thousands active listings since most of them use the sample database,
    and those sites sell links and banners on homepage,
    you may also check the age, backlinks, reputation, and other metrics as well. :)
    and the Google PR is not reliable, read more below,

    Directory submission should be considered just a small part of your overall link building campaign.

    This. They're good because you get one way backlinks. But not the only thing you should be doing.

    As previously said, you should submit your site to directories but don't live by it. There are a lot of other things that you could be doing instead of directories that could also help. Try submitting articles to other article submission websites for instance.

    Here's a link to an experiment I did where I only used web directories for link building. http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=2172178 The results are as stoner suggested that web directories can give you a good start, but you have to market your site in a lot of different ways to get top rankings for highly competitive keywords.

    In order to rank well in the search engines you need links. Ideally, you could get thousands of sites to link to you because your content is extremely useful, original and interesting. Unfortunately, most sites do not score very high on these criteria. You should work at improving your sites.

    In order for someone to see your site you will have to get links. You should get links from a wide range of sources such as blogs, forums, websites, articles and directories. Directories just happens to be one of the easiest methods to get links. Like any link, quality is better than quantify.

    Niche and regional directories (if applicable) are especially good as you get related links that have more chance at bring you some traffic.

    Well, they do imporve some but one really need lots of them to notice any changes. It seems like a closed circle because the bigger the number of links a directory has the more diluted a single link becomes , and on the the other hand the directories that have less links do not have any juice themselves as to pass on the links listed.

    As one way backlinks they can give you a good ranking but only if you submit to quality high ranking directories that have a good authority.

    Ah the spelling on this thread has been funny.
    Of course directories help your ranking as long as you have one way backlinks.
    the weight of directories has not been very good for some years.
