Here my question is still directory submission remain important task for SEO
Opinions will vary on this topic.
From our testing, we have found no ranking benefit at all from submissions to the tens of thousands of poor quality directories out there, and those types of directories never drive traffic. They appear to be ignored by search engines. Anyone who tells you that "a link is a link and every link is a good link" doesn't understand search engines. The quality of a link has been an important factor with Google for almost 5 years.
Submissions to most local business directories are beneficial, because they offer much more information and have a high trust factor with Google.

Even a single no-follow blog comment may create more traffic than a free directory listing IMO. The idea is to siphon off readers of a popular blog and get them subscribed to your blog feed.
So for example, the blog post is about how to do something, and there are lots of comments, and you step in to say that you found a better way to do the same thing.

Ohh Strange.. Do you have some results to share with us please?
Even our firm offers directory submission services but as per my experience, it never gave results as a standalone method. In fact, the approvals are disappointing low until and unless one owns the network.
I would no ways like to call it a "good" method of link building.
Directory submission is still a very effective way to create quality link building. Unique directory submission is considered to be one of the best techniques of SEO.
