Are the directory sites still profitable?

Hello,

Directories are hard work, most give up, think about this, most people use search engines, a low percentage uses directories from the end user's point of view, most directories are visited by people who try to send links to those who have been paid very little. do it

Trying to connect with business companies or even end users looking for companies through a directory is really very difficult, I have done some, I tried many different methods, I have two directories that work well, but the truth is for the amount of work I put in in them for the return that I should have given years ago.

All the best
