    So you asked about the benefit of social bookmarking in another thread, couldn't you ask both in one thread? Or spamming signature links?

    Directory submission is mainly done for getting Backlink (both Dofollow and nofollow)
    it also gives you a little traffic to your website too.

    Whereas social media submission gives you both backlink and traffic.

    The good thing about directories is that they are categorized according to industries. Google sees this in a positive light because it means the sites listed have been manually checked by humans. There's still value in directory listings.

      valid point, once we get a link through directories, google focused only the categories, the link is related to that category, google generates the traffic to that websites else the link will be terminated by moderator.

      google fixed as a spammer. be aware of categories while directories submissions

        The first and most important benefit of directory submission is Link building. It helps the link building to appear natural to the search engines.

    If done properly, directory submission can help in improving your ranking and traffic as well. Web directories like DMOZ, Yahoo! helps you in getting quality backlinks .

    1. Link Diversity
    2. One-time submission

    Other than that, its a weak backlink to your site. Besides Yahoo Directory which cost $299/year & DMOZ

    It used to be for a SERP boost.

    These days I would just use them for indexing purposes. I can't see a huge SERP boost coming out of directories, specially after the latest updates.

    It enables your website to be found by the search engines. Yahoo, Google and other search engines send out ‘spiders’ or ‘crawlers’ who have the task of searching the internet looking for new sites, by crawling through the links from each site.

    These ‘spiders’ search web directories and if your new site is listed on them the spiders are sure to find them via the links.

    To achieve a higher ranking in the search engines, listing with web seo-friendly directory sites will give you permanent and valuable one-way links. Links can also be exchanged between sites and these are known as two-way links.

    However there is nothing more valuable than a one-way link provided by a directory. The more one-way links you have from quality web directory sites will help towards raising your ranking in the search engines and thus your visibility.

      Manual Directory Submission is a straight-forward simple to understand internet marketing activity which can be performed by any web site owner. However, if you wish to do it yourself, you will have to invest considerable time and effort, which can be more wisely invested in growing your business.

      You may end up investing several valuable work-days doing it yourself and also face the fatigue of doing the same thing over and over again!

    both free and paid directory submission are good, but you have to select the quality web directories, also the acceptance rate in free directories are very very less about 0.01%,

    directory submissions will bring you three types of traffic. The first is the traffic coming in from your website being indexed by the “spiders”. Every time they come to index your website, you are getting traffic. Secondly, there is click-through traffic. This means that any visitor to the directory page will see your website, and possibly visit, once again bringing you traffic.
