Web directories play a significant role in search engine ranking, as these help one to create infinite one-way links.
One should submit/register websites to only standard (established) web directories, with a top Google page rank. Quality matters.
There are business directories that request payment to ‘review and publish’ listings. Beware – do not try to BUY page-rank, as this is not even recommended by Google.
As per Google’s webmaster guidelines, paid-listings may never help one’s website in the long run. Therefore, try to get organic/natural links, the way possible.
Say no to PAID links, to avoid getting penalized by Google. Besides, instead of going after automated directories for instant submissions, try out human-edited directories, only.

Where do Internet users spend most of the time, and how much?
A study report (Courtesy: Nielsen, a global information and measurement company) found that Internet users spend about 20-30% time on social network sites, than anything else.
People prefer personal computers more over ‘mobile web and apps’, for access to social networking sites.
About top social networking sites in the United States, Facebook scores higher than anything else in the social network.
With the growing popularity of Facebook and other, business marketers (and SEO companies like Web Technologies Inc etc.) prefer promotions mostly through social network sites.
Opinions any, about the growing trend of social networking sites?
The World Wide Web (W3/WWW), we experience today with just a click or a finger touch was once a complicated system made with much effort. It is now made easier. If you take a look into its history, you will come to know of the people who worked hard behind. This is true with everything we experience today.
Every new step taken forward needs some effort. People always recognise others who take efforts. That is how direct marketing companies like Oracle Advertising and others rose to fame. Most web pages contain hyperlinks to other related pages and perhaps to downloadable files, source documents, definitions and other web resources. Such a collection of useful, related resources, interconnected via hypertext links is dubbed a web of information.
It is the same with direct marketing a collection of skillful professionals via marketing efforts or strategies makes a successful marketing organisation.
