Yes link building is still alive and working as it was before. All you've to do is now become more curious about the quality of the links rather than focusing on quantity. Also make sure to focus on relevancy and diversification.

Link building was abused by some manipulators these past few years and that's why Google treat it as a red flag which violates their guidelines. Building links with low quality sites is considered as link scheming.

Yup, its still alive and always will be. Just creating content and posting it in your blog or website, is not going to help. What makes these content popular and higher search engine rankings, is promotion. So, if you are not doing link building, you are just wasting all your efforts. When taking links to your content, make sure that you are taking quality links only.

yes, link building is still alive. But the link building strategy gets changed. Now a days you have to create links from high quality sites for ranking and traffic.

Nothing is dead For SEO, Either it is bookmarking, directory, link building etc nothing is dead. Do all to get better ranking but don't spam.

Thank You.
Directory submission is an older technique, but still many are using to add a instant value and directories with PR 4+ gives you better results.

Social bookmarking is mainly used for traffic not for backlinks. Most of the backlinks generated from SB is no-follow.

Still the backlinks are used to increase the keyword rankings but not only that they are tons of on-site optimization things hidden inside.
