Get Better Traffic with Anchor Text!

24 05 2007

I guess some people would ask first, “What the heck is anchor text?”  GOOD question, and in a short answer is linked text is usually relevant to the landing page. The objective of search engines is to provide highly relevant search results; this is where anchor text helps, as the tendency is, more often than not, to hyperlink words relevant to the landing page.

 For example John Chow likes to use “Make Money Online”.  Do you see how I linked his tag-line to his site?  Make Money On-line is the ANCHOR text, and the landing page?  HIS website in this example!  John Chow speaks a lot about making money on-line so it is relevant to the anchor text, and it also helps his ranking when others use this to link to his site! Matter of fact he ASKS you to do it that way!

I read a while back CLICK HERE is used a lot in sites that offer their readers the link to Adobe for their program to read their articles in .pdf.  In the search engines if you check to see WHO has the highest ranking for the words “CLICK HERE” it would be THEM!  Click here has nothing to DO with their software at all, but something tells me they don’t mind the ranking they get for using it!  On the funny side its a good example of something NOT relevant if you think about it! 

Use your keyword tools to come with up a tagline that would be revelant, and something people actually SEARCH for!  I was thinking about “build a store online“, but it doesn’t seem to popular!  I will have to brainstorm, and come up with something SOON!

Remember if your sites name is jackflash.com it may not be all that relevant to what your SITE is about!  Remember that search engines also don’t like those anchor text being to long.  Keep it short and simple!  “jackflash.com home of the really fast photo developing” is WAY to long for a search engine to even bother with you!  SHORT and SWEET!

Keep something else in mind as well!  If you are signing up with a directories, webring, etc and they give you the opportunity to give that tag line instead of your website USE IT!  That is also Anchor text!

Blog about money online has an excellent article to continue your reading on the subject now that you have the basics!

Now get that anchor text, and drive that TRAFFIC home!
