    It helps you to gain backlinks and improve your site's position in the search engines, and by that way you will gain traffic. There is no limit to the number of directories you can submit to in a day, as long as the directories you submit to are of quality.

    Directories are one of many ways to get traffic and links. It can be part of an overall SEO plan, but don't think just submitting to 100s or directories is all you need to do. Find quality directories that have a good editorial policy.

    I remember days - not so long ago - that you could get a high ranking within months by buying 500, 1000, 2500 directory submission packages.

    Don't submit to too many directories at once. Spread out your load.

    And I remember when most directories were well maintained. Some still are, and those still help you. It's just harder to find the good ones now.

    Frequency and Volume have no detrimental affect.

    What you should be concerned with is best bang for the buck. You could list in 1000 crap directories and get no positive outcome, or pick 3-4 quality directories and see a benefit. YMMV

    Now directory link have no worth after the update of Penigun. Few years ago directory links was very powerful links and now these links have no worth.

    I'm not really sure I understand what you're trying to say here? Are you saying that a link in a directory is now completely discounted 100% because of the Penguin update? I find that pretty hard to believe. There is no way Google can differentiate conclusively between a directory link, blog link, or any website link for that matter unless they completely discount every link except for those that are no-follow, which really defeats the purpose of linking in the first place.

    Can you elaborate?

    understand that when you doing anything online you want it to seem natural as possible. So when you submitting your site to directory I wouldn't do no more than 100 a day. But make sure you are consist with your marketing plan.

    I haven't seen directory submission hurt rankings when it is done responsibly, and when directory links don't make up the bulk of the site's link profile.

    Web directory submissions still work as long as you submit your site to quality sites and not spammy ones.

    directories provide both traffic and link .google looks for consistancy.so try to add in so much directories as you can do for long time with consistency also look for quality directories.

    There are only a handful of quality directories worth your time and effort to submit to. Excessive links to low quality directories will get you a bad link profile.
