A directory submission is a web site that specializes in linking to other websites. Directory categorization is usually based on the web site overall rather than one page or a set of keywords. Sites are often limited to inclusion in only a few categories. Directory submission is fine and an easy way to build backlinks, however a large number of general and low quality directories have been hit by Google recently and provide little benefit.

The basic aim of directory submission is to create one way links to a website. This in turn generates more traffic flow towards your website and improves the search engine rankings.

Its one of the way to get one-way links for the website. Google likes Quality one-way links for the website.

1) Submit in the Free Quality Directory alone,
2) Submit per day 20 websites.
3) Build Backlinks from different IP.

in my opinion directory submission is not help full like other link building techniques like article submission and social bookmarking as it take long time in getting approved and in most of the directories link didnt get approved. It is just waste of time.

I think most of people think that Directory Submission is not so worth than article submission and social bookmarking and not so important than those. But I think slight differently. Directory submission is still very good SOE trick if doing it with right method.
