The site at the top of serps for the top term in my niche has 90% paid directory links, you know the kind of $250, 100 directory, optimised anchor text, package providers.
The domain name is an exact KW match.
The KW density is almost 8% for the term but interestingly there are no meta tags. So no meta KW or description only a title and the title is 40% the term.
