To determine if it is worthwhile submitting to a directory is by asking yourself whether in the absence of a search engine, would you personally use that directory? If the directory is full of broken links or irrelevant or poorly written content, then it is unlikely to be beneficial. The Google keeps on adjusting their algorithm to remove or lower the value of a site that appears to be a spammy and low quality.

After some strict updates like Google Panda and Google Penguin, many webmasters have avoided link building with web directories. They have done this out of confusion. However, If done the right way any link building process can be worth, the time and effort spent on it.
