    I don't think anyone is submitting to directories anymore. If you want some backlinks, then look for blogs in your niche, make some comments there, or if possible a guest post.

    You'd be better off utilizing social media. Twitter works well for me, as well as Linkedin.

    It can't. It's just a good social media site for business owners (and anybody).

    Ok. I made a linkedin account long ago, stopped using it quite soon. Never understood that platform... Twitter is much easier and you can get lots of backlinks.

    You wouldn't want to submit to free directories they're low quality links.

    Yes, you can still post links of your articles on twitter, just make sure to write something interesting along with the link.
    Twitter can be somewhat frustrating for new people, but eventually you will get followers and retweets.
    Be steady in your efforts there.

    You can use stackoverflow, but its very difficult to be consistent on that website to generate back links, unless you have a tech/software/tutorial type website.
    Quora is a better option.

    You can use free classified posting sites and Facebook related groups. That will definitely bring good real traffic. I will do it for you if you want.

    It’s not always about ‘low quality’ links, some web directory owners put a lot of work and effort into building a online resource.

    I Understand that web directories don’t have as much value as they once did from a link building / improve your ‘Page Rank’ point of view but listing in good well maintained / time served directories will have some value.

    Let’s face it, unless your site is on the 1st, 2nd or 3rd page (at a push) in search engine results you might as well be invisible, then what if you don’t have a good budget to advertise via say Google Ads or paying for SEO other than word of mouth or social media you have to look at alternatives, Even Google My Business might be looking into charging a fee (possibly).

    Best Regards

    See where competitors leave links! This is the most valuable advice.

    Even long tail keywords are getting harder to rank with, the competition is fierce.

    Try -

    DirectoryCritic, Web-directories, Fastdirectorylist

    I’m sure if you search there are maybe more up to date lists.
