Lots of links on a page - bad for you?

    So,

    These are the facts:

    - lots of directory submission to directories that want link-back
    1) created a page /partners.html
    2) added all those necessary links in that page (about 300 links)
    3) linked that page in the footer
    4) Nofollow tag on that footer link
    5) Disallow /partners.html in robots.txt
    6) url removal request for /partners.html page at webmaster tools

    Now, the question is, is that page affecting my website given all the measures taken? And if so, in what extent? Because I'm with some keywords in the first page, with some on the second page top 3 positions.

    My opinion is that it's not affecting my website but maybe I'm wrong.. that's why i need some help figuring that out.

    Thanx.

    Directory owners that accept reciprocal links either do not care or do not accept your link. Trust me all directory owners know these tricks with the main one being not having the partner page in the footer/sidebar.

    As for affecting your site, no it does not affect your rankings because you have nofollowed the page and disallowed it in robots.txt. Even if those reciprocal links were all followed it would not matter because there is nothing to depreciate value from
