Standalone directories are dead
Says who? - Google is not the world. It is a powerful traffic source but not all traffic comes from google.
Google just recently shut their directory
Yes,they shut their copy of DMOZ, but it was not much enhancement in it except seeing PR and the sorting. Not a big loss as long as DMOZ itself stays alive.
