SEO suggestions

I am trying and trying to list my site in the searchengine directories. I have Facebook, Pinterest, google business page etc. I have that portion covered.
I have pulled up some of the directories and it may as well be in another language because I just do not understand the process.
Anyone out there who can give suggestions to someone who needs
"The Search Engine Submission Guide" for dummies
Thanks

There is a guide on here somewhere. Search handbook.
don't worry about submitting to search engines - that hasn't been necessary for years. They all crawl the web now, & pick up your site that way.
Directories are also no longer helpful for SEO. In fact, Google is giving some of them a negative value now.
Back in the Dark Ages of the Internet (also know as the last century), I kept a spreadsheet of the search engines I submitted my web site to. But, as was already mentioned, these days they'll find you! (Note: Never put your shop on vacation as that will remove it from the search engines and they'll need to find you all over again!)
