Well they are certainly low value - I would agree there, in fact they are useless, but I had a tool to add the links - Sliq submiter and thought I may as well use it, the belief being that Google would have the common sense to ignore any links it did not like - but after Penguin I am questioning that assumption.
I must stress that directory links are only a theory - I still find it hard to believe that they would downgrade sites because of these links.
Does anyone concur - are directory links an unlikely target for Penguin?
I must say that once again google has got us all scared of linking for promotion - which is one of the goals of course.
