The rise and fall of directories in the last decade
Late in the 2002 when directory submissions was considered as the most important strategy in offsite optimization, many SEO companies offered this service. With the introduction of free directories like PHPLD, FFA scripts several SEO companies and individuals tried to cheat Google algorithm with the network of directories with an intention to achieve front page rankings. Later in 2004 Google reduced the importance of directory links except for a handful of authority directories like DMOZ.
The big question webmasters ask, “Is Directory Submission an effective strategy now?”
Surprisingly and certainly YES. Statistics Indicate that after the Panda Update of July 2011, Google values directory links. BudgetSEO maintains a list of directories that are quick in processing the submissions, also we update this list every 7 days.
