Directory submission is simply submitting your website to online directories. This strategy is no longer relevant, not in the post Panda-Penguin era. Focus on quality linkbuilding and content.

‘Links’ play a major role in determining your ranking position on the various search engines. Obtaining inbound links or backlinks in quantity and quality can influence your search engine rank immensely. One simple way to obtain backlinks is to submit your link to directories. Online directories exist for the sole purpose of providing links to web users to various sites categorized under relevant topics. “Directory submission” is a website optimization strategy that no website owner should ignore.

directory submission is very essential for any site, because your site posts cant rank up until your site add in search engine, and site results appear in search engine only when you enter sitemap in google webmaster tooland bing webmaster tool

Today accommodation of sites to web directories is viewed as a typical SEO (search engine optimization) method to get back-links for the submitted site. One particular component of 'index accommodation' is that it can't be completely robotized like web search tool entries.
