    Hey folks, need some help&advice!
    We got a year old website of our business and I am not sure should I order manual directory submissions?
    There are thousands of sites offered with mostly all DA and PA 15-25.
    We provide offline services, so the question - Would there be any benefit to our website?

    Cheers! :detective

    I assume you are talking about free directories. I would submit to a free directory like DMOZ only and allocate a small budget for quality paid directories with a DA of 50+. Almost all free directories are spam magnets or are run by people who never review submissions. Good paid directories have the needed revenue to maintain their site and the listings within. Like anything else in life, you get what you pay for.

    Directory submission is not working anymore but its good for diversify your link building campaign. You should hire some person who will submit your website in niche relevant and high PR directories. To me, 50 to 80 niche and high pr directories are much enough for one year old website.
