    Google ignores those links, because they are bogus. Google is looking for genuine links that indicate real value and respect for your site.

    When I started out with web design, I didn't know any better, and so followed advice to submit links to my site in directories. I spent a lot of time at it, even placing links on some reasonably high PR sites. All to no avail. They were all ignored. I can't say with any authority what the situation is now, but in my limited experience, you are wasting your time as far as Google rank is concerned.

    May be these directory pages where you got BL are not cached by search engines, so that not show in results.

    This isn't really the case. If there were no search engines people would still submit their sites to online directories simply because it's a sensible thing to do, so Google not only don't mind them, they expect it. Whether or not those links help with ranking is a totally different issue but I can say pretty confidently that google don't think that they're 'bogus' and ignore them, they take them into aco**** and weight them accordingly.

    In fact, I've just watched a brand new site I'm working on achieve rankings based entirely on directory links because they're the only ones I've built that have been crawled and added to Google's link graph so far.

    So i should not submit to Directories . I started a Kindle Based Website 1 year a go I have over 500 links for a 0.48 keyword . I submitted To Directories Now i can see in my Webmasters Tool that there are over 90+ Links From Directories this means Google is accepting links From those directories.

    I think that uploading 10 pages with content, and inter-link them will do much better then those directories backlinks...

    hi, google consider only high pr BL. and I think there is no impact through 0 PR or 1 PR directories. cause according to me these Dir. have lots of link on perticuler page. so if we count weight there is divided its value and these value is near around 0 which is approximately 0. so i think there is no effect and its time wasting activity. yes if there is high pr dir. is available and you are doing submission on this sites so its, good for your sites.

    It is still beneficial to submit to directories. But it depends on the directory, choose do follow directories and those that features deep links on each listing. Aside from SEO, directory submissions still generate "real people" traffic. If in the future, Google will disregard them (well, I don't think so), think of Yahoo, Bing and other search engines, it will still generate at least 1 traffic.
