    Do those Directory submissions still work ? I used to submit my sites to 1000's of directories but there wan't much effect it had done to traffic. I think social bookmarking is more effective than directories.

    I got the around 75% for my first submissions after 1 month. Probably its around 60%-80%. I did not tested but 7 from 10 are submitted.

    Actualy all your links are submitted, but those 30% are probably not accepted.

    When you start submitting you will be overwhelmed by email of succesfull submissions.

    directory submission still work good for serp.

    but it take up to 3 month to give effect and i think u r just subit in directories 5-10 days before and make this thread.

    its is also depend on your target keyword compitions. if your keyword have high compitions in google search then u have need to submit in more directories and have need to do good SEO.

    Just a tip, but when you submit to directories, make sure you use different anchor text every 10-20 submissions. Otherwise, if your anchor text is the same on a hundred of directories when you get accepted and indexed, google will not show the links when you type "link:somesite.com"...
    IMHO, the link text can have just a slight difference, such as punctuation if you are targeting a specific keyword.

    yes it do works. But the main thing is that, directory submission do not means that your website is submitted in those directories. Its just the way to request the directory owners to submit your website. You need to check manually the directories which have confirmed your request.

  9. Directory Submissions -- Results?

    On 5 June I purchased 2200 directory submissions for three web sites. The submissions were completed within the next few days.

    Looking at the pattern of page impressions before and after the submissions, I see no pattern of improvement.

    Much more recently, I've initiated a much larger series of directory submissions using the directory list and tool at Easy Submits.

    Has anyone else done recent tests with directory submission where they did no other concurrent promotion?
    Submit Your Webmaster Related Sites to the NB Directory
    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

  10. Has anyone else done recent tests with directory submission where they did no other concurrent promotion?
    Yes, I have done several tests.

    These still work. You just don't need to do 2200, about 100 of the better ones should do just fine. (i.e., higher PR on their home pages so you can get crawled).

    The key here, though, is to NOT use the exact link text in your titles. Make sure you include your link text but make sure it's not exact. Use something like "Net Builders Webmaster Forum" if you keyword phrase is "webmaster forum". Or use "Webmaster Forum at NetBuilders.org".

    If you use the exact link text as the title of your submissions it will NOT work.
