Do you think I have more chanche to obtain a good ranking in a fixed period with this:

www.mysite.com/directory

or

www.mysite.com/directory.html

independently from the number of inbound links and other factors.

Regards.

www.mysite.com/directory will produce a 301 response on most web servers.

Stick to:

www.mysite.com/directory/

The problem with www.mysite.com/directory.html is that it's technology specific. If you were in the future to switch to say .asp, .jsp or .php (for example), then you'd find yourself either re-mapping the server or changing your URIs (which will lower your ranking).

There's no difference in the two when it comes to ranking weight, so think more towards what's best for your site and your users rather than the search engines.
