Is it the duplicate content or duplicate anchor link that google penalizes in article directories?

    The answer is both, but in different ways. I had been working with a large SEM company for a few months and their experts were keeping any kind of duplicate content under 5%, so they wouldn't get penalized.
    Duplicate anchor links, if I understand your question correctly, will be harmful for your website if it is done too much after Penguin. You should keep links with the same anchor for a website under 60% of the total number of links, or Penguin will hit you hard.

    Keep things unnatural. If you had 1 link from 10,000 different sites, what are the chances that all 10,000 sites would use the same anchor text?

    Google penalizes both.If you are over-optimizing your anchor text then also you will get punishment from Google.

    Use diversified anchor text as mentioned.
    But think about major companies who release PR, they don't get slapped, even though it's "duplicated" content, meaning it could be ok.
