Directory submission is very much useful for a new site to get crawled and indexed by the search engines.

Try to pick out the best directories and submit your site. A few top directories are google, yahoo, bing, dmoz.org etc

But listing your site in such directories is really a tough one. Your site must be highly informative.

As I have answered to one of your other question, submission to manually edited high PR web directories will help.However, be mindful that some of these directories take a lot of time to review and accept a website for publication,but its worth the wait, if you ask me.

It will help your site if it gets indexed otherwise it won't do good. Also, I guess the better directories are those local directories those which have gained reputation over the years and is widely used by most credible businesses.

You should really look for relevant directories in your industry as well. Google looks on that more favourably. You may also attract more targeted traffic.

Good tip above about finding industry-related directories. If you look around, it isn't hard to find your local directories which have been around a long time!

If your site is new to search engine it is one of the best method to start with directory submission. Just pick out the top directory submission list and try to get listed there. But approval is not quick. Try to find site which provides you the instant approval and get your site published over there.

If your site is highly informative with good content that helps for the people you can submit your site to top directory like dmoz.org, google directory, yahoo directory etc.

I'm interested in this thread as I have just started directory submissions and will be comparing to submissions to forums and blogs.

I can't say that it is effective but it should be done, especially if your site is new to search engines.
