anchors

It seems that cruisers often go to short scope in popular moorages to limit swing--largely due to crowded conditions. I suspect this is one of the causes of dragging anchor. What about the use of kellets when using short scope? any experiences or techniques to share on this aspect of anchoring?
Size of kellet, use of a leader along the anchor rode, distance from anchor, style of anchor? Any critiques on whether it is worth the fuss?
