I believe the good paid ones are still worth it (Yahoo, Business.com, BOTW.org).

I get a good amount of referral traffic from DIRjournal.com (another paid one).

I also heard the story about what happen to DMOZ. Some says that because of that DMOZ doesn't count in Google's eye as best. Well there are so many directory sites aside from that, just always position on the category you are in, so that we will not go wrong whatever happen to that site.

I would stay away from Link Exchanges; google does not appreciate Link Exchanges and may consider it a search manipulation tactic. You have learned the hard way, that's usually how we all learn, for anyone willing to risk ranking, I would suggest that you not try it.

Maybe your link is being placed in a poor website - low quality site with many bad links.

Link exchanges are are a definite no no now.

And if a spammy type site is linking to your site, it will only pass on the negative link juice. Google's algorithm changes are all directed at quality over quantity.

However, some business relevant directories are still worth a link. Especially local based ones.

My website was hit by Google. We haven't done SEO for the last few months except for some link exchanges with relevant sites. So for what I have seen so far I think link exchange negatively impacts siteís ranking in search results.

Search engines today can tell if you are doing link exchanges.

You need to change it up by having 2 websites. A and B

You exchange with links with someone else using your B, but they link to website A

Link exchanging and buying links are the most dangerous activity for the link building. You should be careful to do these.
