I've been experimenting with directory submission & found just a slight improvement in the keyword ranking. Does anyone witness bigger keyword jump with directory submission & if yes then how many directories have you submitted in a month or in a weerk?

Hi Tyler,

I think Directory submission is still a handy way to get the backlink but it depends on you how you choose a way to submit.

For Ex:
1) you have to see how many pending links is there.
2) the category which your site is suitable is cache by google or not
3) what is PR for the site

etc.

I agree that directory submission is still useful. But don't rely on it in terms of getting high quality backlinks since their value has decreased. But it can still help.

Directory submission is still worth the effort, however ensure you use a generic email address as you will receive emails from these sites.

Default DMOZ and Yahoo Directory

Two article directories that get page rank boost from Google are DMOZ and Yahoo Directory. DMOZ is a worthwhile and trusted link which provides results to the Google Directory. DMOZ is free submission but may take a year or longer to get you listed - well worth the wait.

Yahoo directory costs $299 annual review fee but Google considers this a link from a very important site. Once you get listed, you will most likely will also be listed in country specific Yahoo directories, providing even more fuel for boosting the importance of your web site.

Try both and monitor your results.

I think it's require your complete information like address or sites which have address written on their bottom page gets accepted easily.

Is that correct?

Whether you get in quickly to DMOZ depends on whether your specific sub-category has an active editor or if it's being handled by the editor of a higher-level category as part of many different sections... and what mood the editor is in on the day he/she gets your request... and how many requests are pending in the queue... and whether the other submissions are for the most party spammy and low-quality (could be good or bad -- either yours stands out by contrast or accidentally gets tarred with the same brush)... and the phase of the moon... and what the editor had for breakfast... and who makes it to the finals of American Idol this year...

In other words, there are a zillion different factors that go into it. Having a non-spammy, well-written, properly categorized submission for a high quality, legitimate-appearing website definitely HELPS, but it's no guarantee of quick acceptance. (Mainly because nothing is a guarantee of quick acceptance with DMOZ.)

It's a good directory link, but doesn't carry any special weight with the search engines these days. It's just a link like any other link, and not even one of the most powerful links out there, at that. Do your best to create a quality submission, then move on. If you get in, great. If you don't, it's far from the end of the world.

Uhm... actually, the Google Directory was shut down in July of 2011, so this advice is a little outdated, sorry. DMOZ is generally considered a trusted domain so it's not a bad link to have, but it doesn't carry any "bonus" weight with the search engines.

It's just like a sort of having a great reputation online or some sort of trust if your listed in DMOZ.

Some directories can be great for generating referral traffic however the SEO benefit has been lost, a long, long time ago. You may find directories such as Dmoz and Yahoo give a little SEO benefit but not worth the time, effort or price tag
