Are Blog directories a good move, and if so which ones? (For my blog as well as my hubs)
I believe they could help, but I also believe those links have be de-valued in the Google search algorithm.
a bit of a too much too soon type thing? Also by 'de-valued' is this a negative response to the practice, or just an adjustment on the part of google?
In the algorithm updates, Google no longer "weighs those links" as nearly as valuable in determining search results.
They can be, in moderation. By moderation I mean, adding your blog or Hubpage manually and progressively to directories over time, not by using mass submission with software etc. Google will penalize you for that, because it's unnatural linking. Adding your site to "relevant" blog directories is a good way to gain awareness for your site, from the search engines point of view, as far as traffic goes, you probably won't get much.
To find relevant directories to add too, go to Google and type in your 'keyword', ( the niche your blog or page is related to) then type directory. Like this, "golf directory" substitute 'golf' for your own keyword, it should bring up thousands of directories for you, free and paid. Pick the best ones to use, though some will ask for a reciprocal link back to them, you can skip those and find others that suit.
Blog directories were very fashionable at one time, but these days few people bother with them.
Blog directories are usually just sites full of lists of links, and Google does not like sites that are just lists of links. Therefore your links there aren't likely to count for much.
