      Hi Piyush, Google is not much impressed in Directory submission now. But it can increase page rank. Other search engines still considering Directory submission as good.
      You can get dedicated IP address from your hosting provider. When a domain have a dedicated IP address, then it will reduce the chance for spam activities. Hence search engines can have more trust in that domain.
