water seepage under tiles

I have water seeping where basement tiles join together. I don't see it near basement walls. Is that an indication of a different leakage problem other than water not being diverted far enough away from house? I've already secured a 3 ft. spout from gutter and put dirt outside around basement wall so water won't settle close to walls. Comments or suggestions, please?

Water Leakage

If you mean you are seeing water come up thru your basement floor and the location does not seem to indicate water coming in from the walls, the most likley cause is that your have a water table rise and the only thing that will eliminate it is the installation of an interior or exterior french drain system.

Here is a most helpful link in understanding and addressing basement moisture and water problems:
