The most effective of all is to write the best content available in your niche, that way everyone will want to link to you for free. It's what Google says to do in their guidelines and it works!

Bring on the clones

Don't forget that a lot of those sites also have clones, and whilst no where near as popular they can bring extra link diversity for example

I don't think building links on pages of content unrelated to your site will help at all and could actually be counter productive.

Drops in traffic

I would carefully check any traffic drops with the dates of known Google updates, if for example you have taken a hit around 22nd May, then it's likely to be due to Google Penguin, which targets poor...

I think a small number of feeds in use around the web to your site is fine.

But if you are thinking of a mass submission process, then in the current Google Panda, Penguin world that might cause a...

anchor text

I would also use a lot of generic ones like your url, read more, click here, etc etc

bad links


I would build good ones instead that way the ratio of good to bad will move in your favour.

Google now has a disavow feature, google it, that allows you disown links you don't like.
