|But the problem is that we are not in Top 1000 for easy keywords, while I know that we should be in top 100 because I know I have done good job. |
I don't know how good and hard work you have done (I don't doubt) but if your market has 10,000,000 results, being even at #1001 means you are at the top 0.01%. So it may not be that bad as you think.
Anyway, I suggest you keep reading this forum and I am sure you will reach your target soon.

actually it's really bad. If you're not on top 10-30, you're dead

Manipulating the algorithm is frowned upon. Submitting to 1,000 directories and engaging in an active link exchange campaign can be viewed as an attempt to manipulate the search engines.
I wouldn't characterize that as a good job.

I believe that SEO and directory links have very little to do with any page on your site doing well for any term. You will only have a chance on any particular page if Google thinks that your overall site is credible and worthwhile. - at least these days.

Having separate listings for www and non-www is also not a good job. The combination of 1000 directories (on what planet are there 1000 directories worth a bucket of spit?) and the www problem is pretty close to the definition of "not a good job".

To be honest Alok, it sounds as if you're being held back. If, as you say, you're getting nowhere on the easy keywords ... then it would appear that google are deliberately placing you at the bottom of the serps.
Google have made some hefty changes in the way they choose new sites for the top spots. Most of the cheat sites that I see at the top of the listings have been around for years. I can only guess that the older sites will be next on the list for a whallop.
When my main site got hit in June last year, I built a new, improved version ... different server, not a hint of a cheat and very good personal & local content. This site took several months to rise above the usual 300 visitors per day, but now gets thousands and seems to rank equally highly in the new Big Daddy serps also.
It must be worth doing a full review of your site build, looking for anything that Google might class as un-natural and make changes. Also check your incoming links, looking for relations between the sites that link to you ... I've noticed that Google seems to look further for interlinking schemes these days. Also any bad links coming in can destroy your chances. Some free host sites have invisible 'bad' links implanted in their pages, usually the owners are unaware that it's going on. Try searching for sites that link to you and add a typically porn word to the search ... you might get a nasty surprise.
Anyway All the best

Just wanted to encourage you to focus on creating lots of good content, to keep in mind to build something that is useful and helpful, and I think that will be a step forward for you. Things like creating a community are also a good thing.

Anuj clearly needs to focus on the basic quality issues that are in his control before worrying about the things he can't do anything about.
PS Steve I see that you are still #1 for some very valuable terms, good luck for 2006!
