Yeah sure, you can gain some backlinks from directories. This should not be your main strategy but they still do work, just not as good as they once did.

I can imagine that your PR will not increase much but your rankings would, yes.

Directory submissions are ok as long as they are done one by one manually. Don’t use an automated software!

Yeah, don’t use automated software or even services. Do it all by hand.

I completely agree, don’t submit your website to directories in bulk or automatically via software. Also, don’t pay websites to submit your website to 100’s or 1000’s of low quality directories, Google will penalize you big time for these low quality links. This used to work about 5 years ago, but Google has gotten much smarter since then :Nod:

If you want to improve your backlinks and traffic, you must link/promote your website into different websites such as social bookmarking, article submission sites, social networking, forum, web directories and other helpful site by doing it manually. Using automated submission software is not advisable for seo cause it may harm your site.
