What is effect of paid directory services
« on: March 22, 2014, 07:37:02 AM »
I have read in SEO literature that Google hate paid links. We often do directory submission and these directory costs some $$ for directory submission. Are these considered paid links ? Either these links can benefit or harm the university ? Form please help me

It depends a bit on the quality of the directory, but in general I would say that those links are counted as paid links and probably do rather hurt than help.

What is your opinion about the articles directories that charge  some $$ and publish  articles.

I have another question. Does social book marking helps in boosting ranking of a site for particular keyword ?

I would not say that it generally is the way to go. Have you made an analysis of the social bookmark links your competition has?
Also Social bookmarks are not created equal - there are some "social bookmark" services that do not really have any substantial benefit to their users - those probably won't help at all.
It also depend very much on the existing links structure of your website. If you already have a thousand high quality manual links, 50 social bookmarks will not hurt. If those 50 social bookmarks are your only links, it will be seen as rather unnatural...
