    For some of my niche sites, directory submissions have been my ONLY backlinks that I needed to get organic search traffic. Not the strongest backlinks, but they are cheap and definately still have some benefit.

    Directory submission is just the heart of SEO. Try to get as many back links as you can through directory submission.

    By directory submission you can't get very valuable links, but you can get a lot of links with focused anchor text.

    Tips:
    - use a variation of 2-3 (but no more) keyword phrases in title
    - don't submit your site in directories that accepts sites from "adult" category (stay away from bad neighborhood)
    - use a semi automated software for submission
    - don't submit your site in too many directories
    - be patient..you'll probably see effects in weeks or months

    We are using directories for getting back inks and only back links in bulk for our website or blog.Because directories work as a feed for search engines.
