But thanks to all that I have read here, I suspect that it will be successful.

In particular I would like to express my gratitude to a poster who mentioned roboform. Thank you so much.

That made it an average of 3 minutes per oneway link.

Will see in the next 2 months how that goes.

The reason for the existance of a link is for people to click on it. That's what the web is all about.

So if the reason you are getting links is not because people are going to click on it but for some link popularity that may or may not materialise you are on dodgy ground.

If you spent those five hours getting only 1 link in that people will actually click on and visit your site (that's what links are for remember?) it will be worth much more than those 100 dead links ever could.

Getting clicks to your site from links should be your primary motivation. The possible better ranking in the SERPS is a secondary consideration.

What Reid said msg #:27

Some very good advice from him, its extremely important nowadays to check how directories link back at you in-fact how anybody links back at you. If its a 302 run a mile.

ok final update on this one.

The list consists of directories that google does spider successfully. These links provide some (but little) real traffic. This was five hours spent on getting some on topic pr links. These are one way links.

70 have now been found by MSN.
14 by Yahoo.
``www.domain.org´´ search in google finds 30.

I have found that the actual directories include the links in a reasonable timely fashion, and avoid one day spiking.

Google has finally got all my pages in site:www.domain.org.

will wait and see in which of the SE´s this site gets SERPs first.

Awesome news!

I've done the directory submission using roboform before and it is 100% easier than by hand.

In Re: #31 Safaridude, I have to disagree. Most of my links are for the search engines...since that is where 95% of my traffic comes from. Even my best themed pr6 homepage links don't provide 1% of the traffic that MSN sends.

Roboform saved you a ton of extra work! It's hard to believe that you submitted your site to 100 directories in only 5 hours. I get crazy after ten or so submissions. I really must do some more research on Roboform!

Were all of these backlinks created with varied anchor text? I am very curious to know how Google has treated your site, rankings wise, considering there has been such an influx of links in a short time span.
