These can submitted in number in number of directories and is most ideal if you are targeting only specific keywords. Normal directory submission allows multiple descriptions with single URL and number of titles. This is best for spreading the back links to different pages of the same website. Then is the multiple directory submission that allows 10 internal URLs with multiple description and number of titles.

Title is useful because the linking text decides the value the link in the entire search engine process.

The Power of Titles in Directory

Just remember that the power of the title lies in the listing. For example if you have a website on health that speaks about the ‘benefits of vitamins’ then making this as title will help to generate more traffic. The readers and search engine bots will automatically treat the website content that speaks about the benefits of vitamins. The power of the title will force the webmaster to choose rich keywords so enable more traffic. In this way you will get more number of hits for your website.

On the other hand if the directory has duplicate entries or title then it might confuse humans too. The search engine bots will face a tricky situation if majority of the links from the page has similar anchor text. This can lead to manipulation and generate suspicion in the eyes of search engine thus cut value of the website. Obviously turning down your potential visitors might not be a good option. It is important that to keep up the quality of links there are directories that will not allow titles in their listing. In a way getting unique titles in each group is important.
