    Directory submissions may still be good for some part of the traffic as far as you are submitting to the right category.

    Don't waste your time with directory links. If you place it into a context of work vs. reward, there are other things that are far more rewarding than building a pile of directory links.

        Other things mean-

        write high quality articles and post it to high PR websites relevant to your niche.

        You can use network of high PR sites and I am sure you will get to see the improvement!

    Submitting sites to high pr directories - still god?
    It works great for keywords like: shampoo miniature zonkey on monday.

    BTW, there's no such thing as a high PR directory.

      I don't think they're as useful since the last Pengiun update, before that the decent ones used to help to some degree. I've now cut directories out of my Link Building strategy completely.

    I wouldn't spend a lot of my time on it. Only a couple to even out your backlink portfolio to make it look natural.

    No, still the devil.

    Wake up, people: there's no such thing as a "high-PR directory". There's such a thing as a directory whose own home page has high PR" but that's totally different, because your link isn't submitted to its own home page, is it? And the PR value is in inverse proportion to the number of links on the page, and all the rest of it.

    Websites don't "have PR". Only pages have PR.

    Yup still good idea but you said to high pr Directories i mean that mean PR4/5 + and they will be very less so do other sort of link building too along with it and it shall be all fine...

    Make sure PR is PR domain must be atleast indexed in google, as many directories already removed from index and i am not surprised if google still show pr on them as i have seen it many time...

    I'll take the minority position on this and say YES they still work to some degree. The ones I use cost a lot (BOTW, Aviva, Business.com) but those links have worked well for me. Also, I am competing in a niche with 8400 exacts per month, and the #2 site in the SERPS has 25 directory links and thats it. They are 25 good directories though and I'm estimating he paid about $1000.00 total for those 25 links. Are they worth it? 1000 bucks is a lot of money but he is at #2 in a medium competitive niche that is very profitable. My estimate is that he made that 1000 bucks back after month number 2... I for one still add in top tier directories along with my other link types.

    Directory submissions still works only when you choose high domain authority and page rank websites.

    Of course it still works... You should keep in mind that those backlinks should be with UNIQUE anchor text's and if you have the time... try to write unique description every time for best success! And do NOT overdo this, you don't need more than 20 backlinks from web directories!

    Directory submission is still effective. It's also a great way in increasing anchor diversity.
