    Sure Directory submission and social bookmarking very useful in SEO. We can build the quality back links by the help of Directory and Bookmarking. Mostly SBM website have good pr so such types link are very useful. Bookmarking give us also lot of traffic and visitors.

    Bookmarking & directory are important, directory do not show the result immediately and takes nearly 3 or six month for approval. Bookmarking will be little faster.

    Directory and social bookmarking is very important in seo, as they helped in generating backlinks for the website pages. But, now after the updation of google algorithm try to do directories in lesser amount b/w 20-30 on good Pr websites.
    Thanks

    I don't think so about this. I am working with a client who don't want to submit sites using these methods of link building because this is not so reliable as of recent updates on Google algorithm.

    Adding links to directories is not as effective as it used to be back in the mid 2000's.

    Same for social bookmarking. There was a time when you own google through bookmarking but no more I'm afraid. Not sure what the SEO benefits are these days if there is any at all.

    As far as direct traffic from the links is concerned that will be minimal also.

    Both Directory submission and also bookmarking are still very useful. They will not also help get SERP's but also will get your website a lot visitors.

    As new google updates comes in market, everyone start thinking that why google is penalizing the sites , why sites got dumped etc etc. Actually main thing is that google ppenalizes those sites whoom it thinks not relevant . Content relevancy, keyword stuffing, Url targeting, over optimization and unnatural linking these are the factors by which google penalizes the site. Well in case of directory submission and bookmarking submission these are the factors to push up the sites in search engines. You can do both submissions but on quality sites as we can say that high PR sites. Dont do submission in excess as it considers in over optimization.
