To the SEO scenario, I am relatively new. I am really afraid of getting scammed as I am quite new to this and that is a scary thought. To make money, I feel that there are many people who just wish to con webmasters. With directories too, is this the situation? Talking about the importance of article submission and directory submission, I have come across some articles. Articles could enhance web traffic and SERPs too if they are relevant and belong to the same niche. Do you think that this is correct? According to you, are there any major costs involved here?

Some well-managed directories give points towards sites, choose those human-moderated directories that ensure quality of submissions.

Hi Jimmy,

One of the main advantages of submitting to directories is that you earn a link back to your site. This backlink can drive more visitors to your site, help your page rank higher and increase the crawl rate (as everytime GoogleBot visits this directory your page gets crawled)

Most importantly don't forget to use your keywords in the title, description etc...

Actually, at some point directories helps in getting backlinks and traffic, but i don't think using directories it would improve your site ranking since it takes time to approve your content post. It would be better if you will use other SEO techniques to improve your site very well.
