    I have always been using 1 anchor per article, but I have read a few things that suggest to use multiple anchors leading to the same website. Is this more effective?

    Five keyword links in a anchor text is good.

    Try to put things this way - what would look natural? One link to your site per page or 5 of them? In other words, I think one is enough. :)

    Don't forget about Penguin 2.1 update. Don't forget to do anchor text diversification.

    1 link is enough + add some authority link to look more natural .

    Add inner page in article if possible .

    One per article/post linking to an inner page the majority of the time using many, many different anchor texts as well as naked links.

    Natural chaotic diversity.

    Very very few people are going to send you link through an anchor texts. They are lazy and they put your links as
    naked url.

    So prefer to use that method but make sure that you have included your keywords around such url.

    This is the safest method.

    3-5 is okay. just vary them and add some more generic ones like: click here, visit this page, view more. I'm sure your links will appear most naturally this way ;)

    In the intiall stages of link building , dont pay emphasis on 1 single keywords. Infact distribute equally, but after some time separate the important from the rest and pay emphasis on those only.
