directory submissions are worth and do really help in improving traffic and search engine ranks.

No. It never was and it never will be.

The reason I would never suggest an automated service is because there is mostly human interaction with reagard accepting or rejecting submissions. You must find the right category to submit to, and you must then tailor your title etc to what THAT editor deams as acceptable. I know there are set rules, but sometimes an editor will have foilbles that need catering for. I would never use an autosubmitting script.

Yeap thats where manual directory submission services are useful

Nowadays you may have to pay for inclusion in niche directories, if they are good referrers of traffic, then they can justify their revenue model. They're not begging for submissions. But you don't necessarily need their link that bad either if you have a good overall linkbuilding strategy and great content.
Other crap directories will take your money without guarantee of inclusion, or use redirects and don't actually provide you with a backlink. One way to spot these is roll your cursor over the anchor text and watch your status bar for a string like this:
www.directorydomain.net/links.php?ax=out&id=2209] for example.
These directories give out free links but want to protect their page rank and use real links for the higher ranking sites, or charge you for a real link (one that shows your URL exactly as is).
Hope that helps

I didn't realize you said this guy did it manually. I assumed it was automated. Paying for someone to manually submit your site must cost some money.

Of course note that directories have different requirements, so there is no magic trick to it.

As grooveit mentioned, different submission requirements
-different categories, you should have someone selecting the correct one
-many directories do not accept automated submissions
-so many of the good directories are trying to capitalize on their value by charging a listing fee
-other directories want reciprocal links, can't automate that (directories that want RL...ewww)
