    Is submitting to directory will boost traffic? Since google is not giving importance to directories then how we can get benefit of submitting to directories?

    Opinions different on the value of directory submission forum.wedost.com. Some webmasters believe that the back links do help at least a little, while others believe that the links have so little value that directory submission is a waste of your personal time. My opinion is that it is worth submitting your site to niche directories and to some of the more established and respected ones, such as DMOZ.

    The answer varies to different site owners.
    For most owners, web directories helps in gaining backlinks that can increase their site's Page Rank.
    And there are sites that are looking for sites, in which they could advertise their services on web directories.

    That entirely depends on what niche you're in and how popular the specific directory is.

    Some directories are popular and will drive traffic (very few though), others are nothing more than a 'backlink factory' with little or no traffic from them (most of these often carry little or no PR benefits due to their very nature, hence the common mantra of "directories are a waste of time").

    Getting a page rank benefit (so a boost to your SERP) and getting 'traffic' are mutually exclusive. You can get a link which provides a great PR boost but drives zero traffic (although the effect of the PR increase could help drive more traffic through higher organic listings, why the two are often used interchangeably), or you can get a backlink which does little/nothing for your PR but does drive relevant traffic to your site.

    "Google is not giving importance to directories" is a subjective thing. Some directories carry weight or drive traffic, some (or most) do not. As a general rule of thumb, the more difficult it is to get listed in a directory the more benefit it 'might' carry (e.g. if you're listed on a page with 100's of other OBLs it's obviously going to carry little benefit while if you're listed in a targeted niche directory it has far more potential - see the videos linked below for a little more background on what SE's consider when looking at directories [e.g. editorial value added]). To put the whole thing in context, when is the last time you used a directory to find a site? I wouldn't worry too much about 'having' to go out and get listed.

    Having said that, Google have always had a very close link with DMOZ. Up until relatively recently, they showed DMOZ catogeries as part of their result page and still speak about it in beneficial terms. They also used to mention directory submissions on their webmaster guidelines , but found it was leading to a misunderstandings of the importance.

    Can it help? Yes. Is it a big deal? Not really.

    Paul, sorry if I'm misunderstanding something, but wouldn't a link on a quality site such as DMOZ or Yahoo Directory give you both Page Rank and traffic (from clicks) benefits?

    No misunderstanding at all Fergal, just very poor wording by myself there. It should have said 'independent of each other in many cases' rather than mutually exclusive (they don't need to occur in isolation, but in practise they commonly do). Apologies there and well spotted.
