    I did this when first starting SEO. 5000 directory links to site, I added each myself manually, but I used same anchor. got to page 1 then dropped to 7. It took 6 months to hit page 1, so not sure if worth it.

    Diversity of anchor is vital. If I tried again, I would use different descriptions and titles, nothing the same.

    DIVERSITY.

    Use different anchors, descriptions even link platforms.

    Focus on 5 keywords at one time, rank them move to next 5 and so on.

    Do you realize he's talking ablut ranking a directory website, not the other way around? Guess not.

    The thing with web directories is that, there are so many outbound links, minimal contents (usually just the description of the site and NO contextual links) etc. Its basically like a 'links farm" which Google hates these days.
