Do Search Engine Optimization companies spam the directories!
Many Search Engine Optimization companies push tons of links in the directories which will be considered spam by Google and other Search engines.
Do directories owners take part of the plame to accept this!

Most (perhaps 99%) of directories are of little value to the Internet and links deriving from them are essentially a waste of code. The search engine generally disregards their existence. This type of link building strategy is barely considered as SEO work, except to link builders I suppose. They may be able to convince you that it is search engine optimization but it is really a tedious copy/paste task (which is often automated which makes it even less of an actual SEO function but still falls in the realm of Internet Marketing of some sort).
