Directory Submission has been close in SEO off page Activity.?

Directory Submission has been close is that true or not.

Anyone can give me the right information.?

You question isn’t very clear, but if you are asking whether directory submission is no longer a useful activity for SEO purposes, then the answer is yes.

[quote=Google]Additionally, creating links that weren’t editorially placed or vouched for by the site’s owner on a page, otherwise known as unnatural links, can be considered a violation of our guidelines. Here are a few common examples of unnatural links that may violate our guidelines:

Low-quality directory or bookmark site links[/quote]

Having your site listed in one or two high-quality, relevant directories is fine, but large-scale posting of poor-quality links will do more harm than good.

Thanks for supporting me and give me the right information about directory submission…

Now directory submission in SEO Off page is completely dead. It is the activity of old SEO. I have done this, but I don’t get backlink till now.

Directory submission is still useful to generate quality inbound links, SEO can be success with all strategies…

One line posts saying “yes it is useful” or “no it isn’t useful” are no real help to anybody, and add nothing new to the discussion.

Please explain clearly the circumstances in which you think it is (or isn’t) helpful to use directory submission, preferably with an authoritative source to back up your view. Simple statements with no substance or new information may be removed as fluff.

Directory submission is working but we have to choose high domain authority site for submission.

Bear in mind that “Domain Authority” is a metric created and used by It may be a useful guideline to compare one directory to another, but it is not a metric used directly by search engines.

Directory submission is still valid practice see the link for discussion

That link is to a discussion on another forum (rather than an authoritative article), and the discussion is nearly three years old. So bear in mind that SEO has changed in that time, and advice which held good then may no longer apply.

But the general feeling there seems to back up what I said in post #2:

Is that your reading of the thread, or are you suggesting that large-scale directory submission is also still good practice?
