    If your looking for links that are worthwhile then directories arent exactly the way forward. They are nearly all rubbish in terms of seo value.

    Local directories can help a lot for your google places ranking though.

    I missed out this thread of yours.

    Local Directories - Simply means your country domains.

    Suppose you are targeting UK people. Then you can go for submitting to Directories with uk extension, co.uk and all. This will increase your site position in google.co.uk.

    I think this is what he mentioned, but not sure.

    So directories are not the way to go any longer? As in "do it if you have time", or "about as worthless as a xrumer profile blast"?

    Actually what he was referring to was even more local than that but only if you're using Google Places. Meaning if you can find local directories for your city. For example if you're in Miami: miamifloridadirectory.com (not real just made it up)

    Big directories also help for Google places like yelp, insiderpages, etc. But these are for business listings to help you rank in google places.

    As far as regular directories go for SEO, they pretty much suck.

    Go one better and submit to sites related to your niche on high pr pages with very few obl's. Easier said then done but with the right tools, this will get your micro niche all fired up.

    If these directories have little to no value for SEO, are they have any value for something else? I suppose they don't get a lot of traffic also...

    the other disadvantage of free directories - it takes long time to be approved, be aware of that
