Document Sharing: Getting Anchor Text

Here is a short post that will address Anchor Text and Backlinking Anchor Text.

Adding Your Anchor Text:

There are Article sites that can leave you feeling very frustrated!  You can’t add links within the content of the article or add Anchors anywhere within the documents. They  may only be added in the Author’s box!

Document Sharing sites allow you to use anchor texts within your document, unlike some other article sites.  Use anchor text in the Beginning – Middle and End of your document.

Backlink Anchor Text – The Key to Maximizing Your Linking Campaign:

Choose quality before quantity to get ahead.  Links from like-themed sites are worth much more than a link from something totally unrelated.  If you’re selling Rubber Duckies, you don’t want to link with a site that sells Hydraulic Tools.

This makes sense if you think about it from the user perspective.  If you were on a site regarding cars, wouldn’t you be more likely to follow a link to a another car site than a cooking site?  This is exactly the point that Google is trying to get across.  Search engines are trying to provide the user with the best and most relevant information in the search results pages.

Google tracks all your backlink anchor texts as part of their evaluation.  Having a lot of links with all the same text appears like  spam to Google, so you will only get credit for a part of those backlinks.

Google bases this whole anchor text assumption based on natural linking.  If you did nothing regarding linking, people will eventually link to you. It is unlikely, however, that the anchor text each person uses will be the same!   This is the stance Google takes. which is why varying your link text is  important.

Don’t get me wrong, just having the backlinks helps, but varying those keywords can take you to the next level.

Google loves Document sharing sites and responds favorably to any extra backlink building you may do.  Backlink Builder is a nifty tool that you can try for a 21 Day Free Trial  Webconfs.com They have many wonderful tools that might be a great help to you.

Good Tips For Anchor Text:

1. Don’t’ use the URL of the your site (your site.com) as the anchor text.  This will not do  you any good as there is no correlation with keywords.

2. Figure out your target keywords and use varying combinations for them.  Google picks up on this and you will get much further with varying your anchor texts.

For Example:

The keywords you might use are ‘link exchange’, so, also try using ‘exchange links’ or ‘find link partners’ or ‘exchange links with other webmasters’.  This appears much more natural.  Many times it can make all the difference.

3. Don’t use the same link text everywhere because it will look unnatural.

By appearing more natural you appeal more to what Google is attempting to do.  Just follow the 3 easy tips I put above and you’re well on the way to ever-increasing your ranking and link popularity.

Tomorrow I will be winding this up by giving a wonderful list of really good Document Sharing Sites.  I will strongly suggest you go and take a tour of these sites.  I thin you will be pleasantly surprised!
