Is it considered unnatural if you have a url link going to your home page and one going to an inner page using anchor text that the inner page is trying to rank for? I don't think that would be overdoing it if the links coming from article directories are done in moderation.
If this is considered overdoing it or spammy, how about one link going to the home page using the url as anchor text?
I don't have any definitive answers but I would say yes I think google is saying all of these are unnatural. Mine have two links in each article, one to an internal page, one to the home page using anchor text and google considers this unnatural.
