Do directories yield traffic? I know one that does

Lately I have been getting a lot of PM's, emails and instant messages all with one common theme. People listing their sites in the KingBloom Directory keep reporting that they are seeing traffic, yes, traffic from the directory.

One user writes:

I came to dp today to specifically look up threads on kingbloom. I made an entry in the Do directories work (deliver traffic thread) specifically mentioning that over the last few months I've seen traffic from the directory. Noticed a few similar posts.

In the last 2 years I had never seen this kind of traffic from a general directory.

1) congratulations
2) how are you getting it to work.
3) congratulations

And yet another user exclaims:

yahoo_user: hello
yahoo_user: i just wanted to tell you that I am seeing referral traffic coming directly from kingbloom
bellamiainc: that's fantastic
yahoo_user: yes, thank you!
bellamiainc: you're welcome!
yahoo_user: this is the first time I have seen this
yahoo_user: i will be listing more sites today
yahoo_user: thank you kingbloom!!! :)

I really do not have all day to list the countless similar comments I have received. The point I want to make is that, for a directory to be truly successful, it should be valuable to the end user, as well as the SEO. This is also the only way a directory is going to gain any type of respect from the SE world. We've worked very hard here at KingBloom to insure that our directory is clean, devoid of dead or outdated links, and full of fresh, well organized sites and categories.

This is interesting... I've never known a directory to bring traffic before? Great job...
Thank you...
