Not compulsory for better SEO. Directory submission can be a part of SEO but not necessary all the time to submit website for Directory.

I have been in SEO business for quite long time and achieved desirable result without getting a single backlinks and directory submission (sometimes). So I can say, result can be achieved without doing much off-page seo.
Really You don't have to do much effort if you can write good informative and unique content for the site.

They are useful but they need to be authorative (high pagerank or Mozrank) and low Alexa rank in my opinion. There are too many low quality directories out there

No it's wrong. Directory submission is just only off page SEO work.

These days directories lagging it's way , most of the free submission won't approve and no follow some directories like Dmoz are good if you using paid submission, because free submission won't get approved even in one year.

Hi
Apart from local directories there are business directories also, which gives the good back links to the website. and adds the value and brings the inquiries to the admin.

Directory submission is out-dated seo technique but most of the webmasters are using it till now. It helps to increase traffic and ranking as well. Even, we should use only high PR and good sites like Demoz, Yahoo directory.

If you submit your site on high PR and do follow Directory, then it is beneficial for you. There are many low quality directories available that not too useful in SEO.

when your website is not doing well with the help of other submissions technique then only go for Free Directory.

And Free Directory submissions is important because you get a back links and also the relevant backlinks when you submit it by selecting proper category..

Directory Submission is one of the finest strategies for your website to get popular on the web and to increase visibility in online is the core of every online business marketing strategy. Driving traffic to your website and getting noticed by search engines takes a lot of time and effort. The reasons directories are widely used is because it helps google index your site correctly and it used to be a good source for getting good link juice. Always try to submit the links manually in directories.

Directory is not essential part of SEO, because there is many other resources to get quality backlink. As Google spam head Matt cutts clarify that directory will get priority for few years also, so create quality backlink using directory websites. Also get backlink using other techniques such as infographics, content posting, classified and RSS. Backlink is most important part to get rank on SERP, but pay attention on quality backlink not quantity.

Depends on that directory. Dmoz, Yahoo directories are still in demand. Directory Submission with high page rank will be good but if you want to submit it in bulk then it will be waste of your time.

There are only few directories are helpful for SEO purpose, rest site are equal to Dead. Pick the best one to submit your site and do not waste your time in doing directory submission, the same time you can use for any other activity.

As per my opinion Directory submission is not useful but it's only my thinking.
