Web directories are still useful and they will always be. Not all of them of course, but a user can easily figure out if a directory is worth submitting to or not. But since Google changed the whole process of back-link acquisition years ago, “PR6 directory, submit now!!!” directories lost their utility because some of them were banned by Google, others just dropped and so on.

Not all directories are useless, the majority of directories are of the submit a link variety and Google doesn't like content that isn't editorial in nature so these tend not to rank well. Pay for some directories were in the process of evaluating sites well.

Yes Web Directories still in use, A web listing is a source that arranges hyperlinks to sites. Most are personally presented by customers. The company of a web listing is designed to help other customers find sites appropriate to a particular market.

Web directories still provide some value for websites. But you have need to decide if it is worth spending your time using them. Web directories still have some value, they are not nearly as helpful as they were in years past.
