    Yes the directory submissions are very beneficial for your site. It creates natural back links to point your site. It is not harmful and even not wastage of time. Implement it.

    For a newbie trying to learn the intricacies of off page Optimisation..one can start with directory submissions as this is the easiest,least time consuming and above all is free and an important strategy to collect valuable links for their sites.I still enjoy doing this...

    submit your link in directories now have not a great benefit. there are many other one way link methods that can be much useful for getting high page rank today. it has been very essential in the past but today not much.

    Directories with high pr provide quality backlinks but take time to approve your link as compared to the newly added directories with low pr which give fast approval and less quality backlink ..
    Directory submissions doesn't helps in building much traffic to website..
    so if you are already having a good pr, then do submissions in quality directories and try focusing on other effective off-page optimization process

    Does anybody know of a "quick" way to find HIGH QUALITY directories with PR? I still do all my backlinking myself, and really need to save time whenever possible. Thanks guys! I have submitted to DMOZ; still not listed, and I'm not too optimistic it will be soon.

    Your site wont get that much traffic from Directories but submitting your site to good directories will definitely help your PR.

    There are so many new activities available in place of directories. Directory submission is important but its not necessary.

    It is always a good solution to add to some good directories. However it is not worth the effort to add to some bad directories - but it always been like that. Finally, if you have too much free time, you can still add to all possible directiories, but the effects will not be the same as they were couple years ago.
