    I submitted my blog to a few simple blogging directories, including felmyblog, blogorama, bloggingfusion and ontoplist - they are all lame or semi-lame, but I was interested to check what will happen.
    Also, there is a huge blog list on an each of them, so maybe I could connect with other bloggers. The problem is that many blogs on these directories were not updated for a long time.
    My question is, can a blog directory do something useful for my blog, rank or expossure?

    Blog directories or article directories are useful. They are free backlinks for you plus the chance of visitors to those directories coming to your blog.

    Google deindexed a bunch of directories a while ago. They wouldnt do that if they didnt work, right?
    However, I would only submit your site to the bigger directories which are still moderated and do not do all at once ;)

    For me, Blog directories are very useful. Before using the free blogging directories, check their updates.

    I used to use them, but I saw no real benefit to adding any sites to them. Of course, your experience may differ.
