    1) Are they worth the time and effort?

    2) If so do most of you use the reciprocal link, or just send your link

    3) Do you have any success with sending deep links opposed to the home page

    Thanks i have learned so much here

    Hi,
    1) They can be
    2) Just my link unless they request one.
    3) I just send the home page.

    Also there's a number of free directory submission services on the web...just Google. ;)

    1.) not as much as they used to
    2.)even less if you use reciprocal links specially if that site and yours aren't the same niche
    3.) many directories the page your link is at are so deep and that page isn't even indexed which makes the link useless.

    Here's my answer:

    1) Are they worth the time and effort?
    If the directory is do-follow and have a good pr, yes
    2) If so do most of you use the reciprocal link, or just send your link
    Just use the free link
    3) Do you have any success with sending deep links opposed to the home page
    If the keyword competition is low, you can be in the top ten google rank with just directory submission

    1. Yes. Don't expect to get a bunch of direct traffic or anything like that, but they still are great for getting some backlinks.

    2. No. You want 1-way backlinks.

    3. I always just send them to the homepage and never had a problem. Some directories don't allow deep linking.

    This site here has got about 1000 free directories to submit to
    http://www.adirectorylist.com/directories?free=1&pageSize=-1
    You can see the ip's so you know when your submitting to a link farm.

    - Only problem is that you can't sort by pagerank yet.
    - Also there a few identical ip's

    What I've done is I use imacros
    (its free here)
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3863

    Then I record about 7 scripts, most of them have the same fields, so its easy.

    Then I just hit play and in a few hours I've done about 300 submissions.
    Probably saved myself about $20 - $30
