    No, it's not dead. But hand pick your directories. I'd try to target ones that are contextually relevant to your niche.

    Submit your URL in just niche relevant directories, instead of just follow the high PR.

    Not dead, still very common and effective when you're doing local SEO. Just look for quality and don't build anchor text links with directories

    It very much works. Just like any other type of links, look for high PR domains, do fo**ow link, anchor text diversification.

    Directories are good for local SEO. Worthless for regular SEO unless you get in DMOZ, which is unlikely/impossible

    It still works but not as effective however it will help as part of the overall seo campaign.

    its a very important part, You should have link building diversity, You should start scraping Urls if you are finding any.
    Recommend scrapebox :)

    I do get lot of authority from directory submission
