For me its still worth to have back links on directories but with the condition is they must be quality directories. You should choose paid ones to have better quality.
Hope that helps!

If you see you would realized that you have submitted only one url on that directory but there would be more that one backlink coming from that particular directory.
In this case it will not look as spamming links?

For example when I have 300 links in 300 posts from signature on a quality forum but in my Google Console links to your site its showing 700 links from that site, I don't know how Google calculated that but its beneift for my keyword ranking. I tried to move the signature then my keyword rankings decreased.
Its reason why I said you don't need to worry about number of links on a quality site.

I think it depends on the forum or directory. Sometimes the information is repeated on other pages and counts as one more link. This does not happen in all of them.

Only approved directory submission work for long time and depends on your website content

By directories if you mean something crap then I would say it's no more than wasting time and efforts. However, when it comes to authoritative sites then surely directories have importance in a way that it can bring traffic to your site and this traffic eventually results in generating some leads.
So directories are important but having niche relevant directories. For example if you have website of leather jackets and you are submitting it in the directories of science then it's better to play some video games rather than spending that time.

Directories probably do not work as well as the Yahoo directory did back in the good ole days. You still get a backlink though. It seems to be a little difficult finding regular directories any more, perhaps that is just me.
