LOL, that's not a SEO. SEO is organic search and what you described here is Pay Per Click "strategy" of dodgy firms...

Don't expect prompt responses from free directories. DMOZ has very big reputation for Google, so it's important to be there. But there is no rush for them to review every site as soon as possible. So the best advice - submit it and forget it. After 3-4 months if it's still not on the DMOZ submit another time and forget it. And so on... Don't submit it every day, it won't help and might be even worse as you will piss off the editor.
The fastest way to get on DMOZ is to know editor

Blogs are actually a lot of fun. Sometimes I'm amazed at the traffic you will get.

I got two sales last week from this blog entry. Not fancy and not designed to get leads. But it did.

I've been blogging for over a year now. While you will get traffic it doesn't mean you'll get quotes or business.
You'll get a lot of not-targeted traffic. I actually just posted a video on my insurancemarketingonline.net/blog that shows the analytic between a couple of my websites. 2 traditional natural websites, a blog and one of my sites I use for PPC only. That url will skip you past the opt-in page. If you like what's there please opt-in and get updates as I post more training videos.

While I like free traffic and do what I can to find great free lead sources and ways to drive traffice, PPC is a much faster and almost guaranteed way to go. I use the results from the PPC campaigns to start targetign for natural SEO and long-tail keywords.

While blogging is great I don't think it's the panacea everyone raves about. however, it's a lot of fun.

Random traffic doesn't convert well for people looking for insurance from my experience. The key to any success is getting very tightly targeted traffic to your site, then talking to the site visitor (with your website) exactly how they were searching for you, then causing them to take the action you want them to take with your website.

My top website earned me over 6 figures this past year with less than 2,000 unique visitors a month and none of it came from blogging.
