    I was buying 300 directory submission and now banned from Google.
    I was thinking that directory submission not so big deal but it seems it is? :)

    If your site is new it can just be penalized for having suddenly too much links, and then it will be back in the serps in a few days / links.

    Did you happen to purchase these submissions from the cheapest offer ?

    If you did use some of these cheap offers like 2k submissions for $5 , then most are probably directory's that are filled with non relevant sites in the wrong category which will = a bad neighborhood and be looked upon bad by the bot.

    Also most directory owners dont even approve the submissions quickly, some take a few weeks, then after they get approved you still need to wait to get those pages in the index which will = your link back.

    Just my thoughts

    you can't be sure your site it's banned because of directory submission ... :) here can be loads of reasons behind of this , and better ask the G' folks about it , you have the reconsideration button on your webmaster tools and it's not so hard to hit 2-3 links ... even can fix your problems ,

    ps. of course try and do not mention '' I`ve bough links '' because most probably you will be banned for good :)
