    Just a quick thing I have noticed from backlinking a lot of sites in the last couple of months.

    We all know that you should diversify, switching up the anchor keyword with "click here" "visit site" etc...

    What I have done on a lot of sites lately is this. Lets say I want to target the keyword "Nissan GTR4". I will build links with a lot of variations with the original keyword in it: Sky blue Nissan GTR4, Red Nissan GTR4 for sale, Nissan GTR4 on sale, cheapest Nissan GTR4 etc etc... I don't switch it up with "click here" and stuff like that anymore. I rather do it with the keyword in it "Click here to check out the new Nissan GTR4". It is working great for me. Not groundbreaking stuff but for a couple of noobs who are questioning about keyword diversity, just throw your keyword mixed with other related words.

    Great tips. You don't benefit much if you target "click here". If you put only "CLICK HERE", then you are targeting mainly "CLICK HERE" and secondarly your link embeded

    I have always found a longer relevant sentence with keyword better than just "click here". Good tip.
