I would change #3 to read:

3 Joining ANY link directories

I was careful while writing that and I understand the point you make.

But it is still helpful if you choose a link directory, which humans verify(as against an automated one). You could also check the 'neighborhood' and see the other websites that are around. After a thorough and careful evaluation, you could submit and benefit.

Cheers,
Gautam

I noticed short posts, which add value work here. It's best to step into the other's shoes.

Most readers have short attention spans and want quick/relevant information that helps them.

I try to skim through long posts and never care to look back. So, do others!

Yes, Rebecca!

They don't help anymore. Seemed legitimate at one point if you were ignorant, but Google does not understand that. :)
