Hi - are there still directory sites that are worth submitting to for SEO purposes? Is DMOZ still relevant? How about Yahoo Directories? If you had no resources and limited time, what are the top general directories you would submit your website to?

really - so even the DMOZ's of the world are definite no no's. What about more vertically focused directories like a [Removed]?

 

Thanks for the reply Jill

You can certainly submit to DMOZ, but it's doubtful you'd get any traffic if you were lucky enough to get listed. 

 

And sure, if there are specialized directories in your industry that get a lot of traffic which may help bring eyeballs to your site, then certainly submit to them.

I still use Local regional directories.

It could be my imagination, but I get the impression that there is a gain to be had for Geo specific searches such as product plus location or service plus location.

This is of course in addition to the small amount of focused click-throughs that arrive direct from the listings themselves.
