I wonder whether anyone with a quality website considers directory submission as a legitimate SEO practice anymore?
I've run a fairly well ranked directory for 8 years. I guess you could call it a 'niche' directory, but it's a large niche.
It used to get a decent percentage of quality sites being submitted, along with the crap sites. But over the last few years, it seems like 95% of the sites are pure garbage.
So I've pretty much stopped approving anything, but still add links on my own to sites I think are useful.
