In our last blog post we discussed anchor text. We talked about what anchor text is and what the different types of anchor text are. Today were going to cover exactly what happens if you have too much exact match anchor text and how to recover from this. This is a problem many newbies make. They get overzealous and start link building without a solid strategy.
What is exact match anchor text?
Exact match anchor text is when your anchor text is your exact keyword or keywords. For example if your keyword is testosterone pills and your anchor text is testosterone pills (see this site here or at besttestosteronepills.com) then you would have an exact match anchor text. Pretty easy to understand, right? OK, moving on….
What happens if you have too many exact match maker text?
If you have too many exact match and contacts, Google is going to see this as a natural. This will send off a giant warning signal to the big search engines such as Google and they will likely penalize your site. This translates into a drop in your rankings.
How do you recover?
You can recover by diversifying your anchor text and deluding your anger tats to avoid over optimization. try adding in lots of generic or naked URL anchor text.
If you know anything about search engine optimization for SEO for short, you also have to know about anchor text. Knowing about anchor text is vital to the Google algorithm. It is also vital to not only being ranked by search engines, but it’s vital that you know about it to avoid being penalized by search engines.
What is anchor text?
Anchor text is is essentially the words that are attached to your hyperlink. For example if your website is about baby jogging strollers, and your anchor text is Callie’s list with Callie’s list being the text that is clickable along with your hyperlink to the site, Callie’s list would be your anchor text.
What are the different types of anchor text?
Anchor text essentially falls into the following categories generic, exact match, naked URL, and brand. An example of a url anchor text for Callie’s list would be: www.thebestjoggingstroller.com. An example of an exact match, would be “the best jogging stroller.” Hopefully that clarifies it for you.
If you send out too many links that are your exact match keyword anchor text, Google likely penalize you and reduce your rankings in the search engine results or even worse deindex your site. Please avoid doing this.
