Can manual 1000 - PR4 directories submissions help me?

Does directory submissions still work?

Let's say my competitor has 40 incoming "normal" links and I have 20 incoming "normal" links.

Hi PR is 3 and mine is 2.

My question is:

If I submit to 1000 directories with a page rank superior than 4 and with a pretty good Alexa ranking (although I don't expect my links page to have a high page rank)

I will do the submissions manually with a script I wrote to autofill the forms.

Should that give me up to let's say PR4, is this a reasonable expectation?

Any opinions much appreciated.

I don't know what sector your webiste is in but 1,000 directories does suggest to me that they cannot be high quality.

Directory submission it is just one type of link building, but in my opinion it's still works. 1000 directories submission? It not looks naturally... It is better to submit 10 articles to EA, then 1000 to link directories. Usually I submit my new site to 100 directories in 1 month and taht's works for me, but again it's just one type of link building strategy.

Your multiple references to PR, your reference to PR 4, and goal of obtaining a single kind of link indicates that you need to slow down and learn the fundamentals before proceeding further.

There is much about your plan that is flawed. If you want your site to be in a happy place then I encourage you to forget what you think you know about SEO because it is holding you back, and start over by reading the link dev library. [webmasterworld.com] After you finish reading that you will hopefully have unlearned what you think you know and come to understand the true fundamentals.

Good luck.

My suggestion would be to forget about PR... Just because a site has a higher PR than yours does not mean it is getting more traffic, more sales or more ad clicks. PR is just one of MANY factors that are taken into account. Don't try and get a higher PR number just for the sake of it, concentrate on building traffic and converting that traffic.

martinibuster that link to the link dev library is very useful. But I cannot find it anywhere but in your post.

Where is it hidden on the site?

Each forum discussion has a 'Library' link at the top of it, just below the breadcrumb navigation.
