Directory submissions do they work?

Rak asked 1 year ago
Has anyone used directory submission as part of their linking or SEO campaign?

I see that some services offer to submit your website to 500-1000 directories for a reasonable fee.

Yes it’s still effective if properly done. I am still doing this for my clients and receiving good result.

When you say “properly done” do u mean, using email address connected to the domain, correct directory insertions etc?

If you go out tomorrow and blast your site with 5000s obv they all do not go live at the same time and will not all get accepted but it is not natural link building no site gets that many directory listing even per month and Google has an algorithm to spot too many of the same kind of links coming in at once, especially with the same anchor text. If you only got a few here and there with varied anchor text then you would benefit from them.

I reference Matt Cutts himself on this one:

TL;DR

Submitting to low quality directories where inclusion is guaranteed is akin to purchasing links and thus has little to zero longevity.

Guys, the recent Google Panda update has penalized a lot of directory sites severely. You may actually get hurt now instead of seeing a benefit.

If you’re going to submit to directories anymore, make sure they still rank well, and make sure their articles are ALL of high quality or you may live to regret it.
