    I totally agree on this. But I can't say it's unimportant. It's just that there even better avenues in which you can promote your site. You don't have to spend most of your time to it.

    I think directories used to give alot better effects in google but the market is flooded with them now and most of them mean very little to google (but I doubt they mean nothing). There are obviously some directories that mean a whole lot, the most important two are the yahoo directory (kind of expensive - up to you) and the DMOZ directory (this is googles own directory and it is very selective and hard to get into) if you can get in either of those it will noticeably help your pagerank.

    It's a decent method, but it really depends on the quality of web directories where you submit and list your site. Choose the ones that are authority sites, have good PR and reputation.

    It does not help you wth page rank directly. But it helps you to generate huge traffic and this make good rank indirectly.
