    The directory submission and social book marking may have a slight impact on search engine optimization. As directory submission on high domain authority with specific geographical location will help you in local search result and social book marking will help you to index and crawl your content faster. In this way these have a slight impact on SEO

    You are looking for successful in SEO then bookmarking is most important for your website.Directories and book marking sites also provide good back links and submission on these sites but the sites with high ranking are quite useful for ranking.

    Relevancy & quality is important for creating backlinks,

    so relevant & quality directory and social bookmarking helpful for seo, but if you doing spam and submit your site in unrelated & low quality directory then you get chance to getting penalty from search engine..

    They can be slightly useful to get link variety and a few first links to get crawled. To get rankings, I am afraid not. They are not enough by themselves.

    Directory and social bookmarking is origin promotions of seo industry it is ever green if you need one way links directory is the best source. some directories will takes time to approve link if you have competitive product or services just goahead with paid directories then your competitors cant follow your link to post their links.

    • Promotional Link in Post Removed
    Directory submission and social book marking submissions are not in trend in nowadays. Directories are called spam and so on SBM if you do them in excessive amount. Focus on Articles, info-graphics, Video and Image Sharing, Blog Posting, Profile Creations etc. Always write fresh, unique and lengthy content. By doing such submissions 5 per day one can achieve desired ranking in just 5 to 6 months. Trust me.

    Thanks & Regards
    Richard White.

    I still use directories. But more industry specific ones. I do social bookmarking but for the sake of sharing.

    Generally, directories like rankyourwebsites.com and alike don't work anymore. There are high quality directories out there but they are paid and laser-targeted. Yes they still work. but the ones you find free surely don't.

    Directory and Social bookmarking are important as they generate backlinks to your website. Although directory submissions review time is more but one should submit there website on High PR(PR 5 -8) directory .For Bookmarking ,do bookmarking on good websites such as stumbleupon, delicious, reddit , google bookmarks.

    With directories try to find quality moderated ones that are relevant to your products or services, rather than general directories that accept any site

    Although I would not recommend using directories primarily for SEO, and neither would any professional marketer, directories could help your potential customers find you. And, since Google and the other SEs will find any link, no matter where it comes from, this is very sound advice.

    It's really strange that you are having signature link as a SEO Company and provider of SEO service and you are asking this question.

    Any technique may it be social bookmarking or directory submission, if submissions are done in low quality website using poor & duplicate content than these techniques may backfire the traffic and ranking of your website.

    Wrong. Wrong Wrong.

    Any link you get from a social bookmarking site will have zero ranking value. They are bottom feeder links. Google will either ignore then or will penalize your site because you are creating the links to artificially boost your ranking (which is against the rules).

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings but you are 100% wrong. Nether of your suggested methods are effective.

    They are popular techniques still employed by Asian SEO practitioners but that does mean they are any good.

    Submitting your site to a thousands of directories doesn't going to help you. Now these cheap directories have no effect. As far as bookmarking is concerned it may help you a little but you should concern on other link building techniques like blog commenting & guest posting etc.

    First part of your post was correct. But the last part was wrong. Blog commenting won't do anything (links are no-follow) and guest posting is now no better than article submission (which Google now ignores).
