Focus on content marketing.Only a handful of directories help in ranking and aprat from that social bookmarking is not effective nowdays.The homepage url would be enough if your tageting for the whole website without differing the keywords.

I think Nowadays Article Submission with Unique Content is more Effective.I am Suggesting You Do Blog Commenting and Forum Commeting Related to Your Website Topic.Target Long Tail Keywords So User and Google Both Will Understand Easily What You are Trying to Provide...

Well, that's a long list of questions you have been made for answering so I am going to answer your question the same order you have asked !

  1. What techniques we need to follow these days to promote our website? - In order to promote your website I would advise you to target yourself over the various social media network as they are quite good and great source of traffic.

  2. I have websites related to entertainment? - Like, I said above social media platform will be the great platform for you to make your presence.

  3. Does directories still rule the seo??? - I couldn't say exactly because this is a question which has been discussed over this forum from a quite while and I still haven't got onto any conclusion but if I talk about the Google SEO world then, they have clearly said its dead only yahoo and Dmoz directory submission is good to go forward with. So, do I think I would not adivse you to move ahead with directories other than yahoo and DMOZ directories.

  4. What about Bookmarking?? - should i do it for inner pages/posts or the main URL??? - Social bookmarking is another great idea and I guess bookmarking for in pages/post or the main URL only, depends upon you could move forward with the one you like!

The biggest and most effective technique would be to create quality content. Follow rules of Google and wait for some time to get organic traffic
