    Google isn't giving value to links "easy to get". Google gives value to every link which seems to be natural.

    Directory submission is a spammy and old tactic which not helps anymore. Everyone can do it, so many did, that made Google lose interest on those links.

    Submitting your site to quality directories is basic in any SEO campaign. Having your site listed in search engine friendly and human edited directories works wonders for your online marketing efforts.

    Few noteworthy benefits are as below -

    1. Your site will be detected, crawled, indexed and even re-crawled faster in major search engines.
    2. Having quality directories linking to your sire usually result in more pages being indexed by search engines.
    3. Directories will give you two types of links - contextual category link and unique directory listing links.
    4. Your website can rank better in all major search engines.
    5. Google uses quality directories in it's algorithm to calculate how pages are ranked in the SERPs (Search Engine Result Pages)
    6. Keywords in directory listing link title and description can give your site targeted traffic.
    7. Directories with good traffic will send traffic with potential customers directly to your website.
    8. Having your company or domain name in directories is a great brand building idea.

    I also do directory submission for my website as well as my client's and it has certainly improved my rankings.

    Directories can help with local SEO. So if your business has a location it still has value. But certainly dont expect that it will be a game changer.

    Directory submission is the old trick for getting the backlinks. But the thing is this submission takes time for giving backlink. It almost takes 2-3 months for approving the Link. And you will get result after long time waiting. But that link will be quality link.

    Present Google is not taking the rank by using Directory submission work, Because this is easy way to submit our sites, While opening that Links They dont have any similar pages links
    So Google deleted these old tactics,
    U get result immediately but after that Google will decrease your rank. So please avoid this type of easy techniques. Bulksms4indians - Indian's No.1 Mobile Marketing Agency
