directory submission doesn't guaranteed traffic to your site, you can try traffic exchange for better result.

It all depends, what do you market and what are your goals!. Traffic Exchanges are not good for every kind of marketing campaign.
Directory submission do guarantee some (VERY TARGETED!) traffic if you submit your site to quality niche (topic oriented) directory. Such quality topic directories are often visited by visitors interested exactly in this topic. :)
Of course, junk and poorly maintained general directories do not attract any traffic.

Directories don't provide you any traffic to your website. Instead it provides backlinks. If a directory is having good AR and Pr means then it will be very effective.

Purpose of directories is to provide back links not bring traffic.

For traffic you can try article submission,blog commenting,forum posting video distribution etc.

Directories are good for backlink building if the websites you list your business do have high ranking, but you should not limit your SEO efforts submitting your listing in directories only, as directory submission websites are not that dynamic you should also consider forum, blog submission and social media marketing.

These days, directory submissions does not create that much traffic to a website anymore.

I think it really depends if you get listed on a niche directory or a general one. A niche directory that is found on Google for relevant searches will have a much higher click through rate and actually get you a bit of traffic.

Forums and blogs may get you more traffic, but it depends on what kind of traffic. For example if you are a web designer and you post a topic on this forum then you may get web designers looking at your website. Whereas if you are listed on a industry specific directory you may actually get potential clients finding your website.

If you post in free directory, it will take some time to get approve. Now a days from directory submission, we get low number of backlinks only.

Web directories just gives your website better position by backlinks, but for traffic you should try to coment on blogs, and forums with dofollow website
