Everyone is repeating the same thing so I think the discussion should be closed without wasting any time on directory submission and its discussion.

Why not? it is still effective and helpful to get high quality and good page rank backlinks in very short period with ethical and natural way of link building.

Directory submission is not more effective after Google Penguin update. I am not getting any good results.

As per my knowledge Now a day Directory submission losses its importance. You have to submit your site in High PR Do Follow sites which is beneficial for your site. Check the sites before submission. It is still useful but do it in proper way.

No it is not as effective as it used to be. Hardly a few directories get approval except some high PR directories.

Exactly, I agree with you. Forum posting plays more important role than directory submission as well as article submission.

I was under the impressions that local and/or niche directories are still effective. As long as your focus is on relevant directories and you're not submitting to every directory out there I think you'll be alright.
