Do you think directories are a waste?
« on: September 21, 2010, 01:06:08 AM »
I was shocked to hear that many people think directories are a total waste of time. Do you also agree to the same? A couple of years ago, this service was highly recommended by SEO gurus. What led to such a downside? Is it because it fails to provide backlinks to a website? If I am not mistaken, then directory just lists a website once it is submitted. There is nothing more to it, right? How can it get a good amount of web traffic on putting a link to a web page? Can anyone explain me?

Thank you

Not all web directories are useless. There are still some web directories that would give you good SEO results.
But the number of bogus web directories are increasing. So for me, I would rather spend my time on other SEO techniques which can give me better results.

People thinks that directories are waste of time and main reason for that is free directories links are approve after two months 2nd these link are very deep that they only give backlink which has not much link juice, 3rd free directories not give much traffic. But I still recommend directories submission especially for new website which need more links.
