Directory submission service is a distinct service and not a simple data entry job as most people think. Directory submission requires specific knowledge of SEO and the skill level comes into play when a limited space is available for submission. Most unskilled or non-seo submitters aim to harvest the latter part of the description if its too long without knowing that most times it hurts the campaign and the whole purpose of directory submission is lost by that very SIMPLE looking crop.
A skilled Directory submission service provider will always have 2 sets of the description and anchor ready before he starts submission. This factor is fully lost while doing an Automated submission. Accurately why one should never try using an Automatic Submission. Manual submissions done specifically taking care of the best available category. The match-making process is best done with the HUMAN factor.
There are very less directories that allow automated submission and most have a verification code entry to inhibit such process. The Automatic soft wares miss out on these directories which consist of a majority of the total web directories.
Also observable is that directory submission looses its purpose if submitted to the wrong category either it is rejected by the moderator or if listed, does not help with the Search Phrase. An imperfectly listed website will not pull its weight with the Keyword linked to it. Rather it’s a wasted attempt.
