    Does submitting links through Active Search Results and Gigablast help increase traffic? Likewise, is it useful to submit links toward articles or pages as they are published through Bing, Google and Yandex Webmaster Tools? Why?

    I would be very hesitant to use such services. I've got a hand in our marketing efforts and we're cautious where links go and who links back to us.

    It can be straightforward for those sites to get you links on the bad side of town, which will hurt you and your website rankings. In particular, if Google catches on and you get listed on too many link farms etc. they could de-index your website until the links are removed and cleaned up.

    It's all about content, and blog articles these days. Best way to get a link is to write guest post articles about your subject and submit them to like-minded blogs which will then get you legit links back.

    Submission itself does not help gaining traffic because noone visits directories, and services selling guaranteed results do so dishonestly, giving the impression they actually work and are cost-efficient.

    Even if you notice a change after using those services, you're better off chasing after human visitors, and work on ensuring your sites leave a positive first impression and include additional and new content, to ensure the people randomly dropping by become repeat visitors then participants. Note that the temporary nature of those services' results is meant to make you dependant on keeping paying them, which can get expensive quickly.

    Yes, absolutely agree with it. It is important to focus on quality content and then maybe guest post to get some quality backlinks.

    Don't waste your money. Any paid link service can get you in trouble with Google and other search engines. Your site could be penalized or even deindexed
