    This used to be a viable tier 1 links alongside with web2.0 links. Article Directories are really easy to get links from because you just have to write an article and post it and just build links from there.

    If it is not viable for 2016. What is great ways to build tier 1 links? Really appreciate it!

    Tier 1 ?

    Web 2.0
    Profiles Links (Not spammy kinds.. Get those PR 7 - 9) , Don't get 100s or 1000s.. try to start with 5 to 30
    Social Profiles / Networking (Again.. only big sites )
    Social Signals
    PBNs
    Guest Post

    Don't touch those article directories for Tier 1 as you would not get the desired benefit for the effort put in.

    For tier 1 get some high profile guest post and PBN links. Article directories and blog comments (non spammed) for Tier 2.

    You can throw in some nicely built Web 2.0 backlinks for both Tier 1 & 2.

    AD's got all spammed to hell during the 2009-2011 era when tools like SeNuke slammed them with tons of links daily. Its "ok" to have a couple in T1 for diversity's sake... but be sure they are A+ directories with A+ articles and you push socials and traffic (fake is ok) to them for a week or two after.
