    Hey guys, how is everyone tonight?

    I have a question regarding interlinking and anchor text. I guess it can apply to backlinks as well.

    I know it's not a good idea to have every link and internal link using the exact match keyword but does it impact your SEO depending on what anchor text you use?

    For example, if you use the anchor text "check out my review here" or "...the post I wrote on my site here" is that good or bad in the eyes of Google and SEO? Would it be better to use a relevant LSI keyword?

    I ask because I'm wondering what impact it has on SEO as well as CTR. I think readers would be more likely to follow through to a link where it tells them "click here to read" or "find the post here" rather than something completely contextual (yet relevant).

    What are your thoughts?

    Fuck back linking, content is king. Just write a good long article, and in 17 years you will be pulling in a hefty $12.50 a month.

    Doesn't matter, I use all exact match anchors for my internal links. If you want to increase the CTR then do that. It wont change much.

    Generic Keywords are often great way to drive traffic instead of using keywords as anchor.

    With interlinking you are transferring the juice/power of the page you are interlinking from to the page you are linking, it's not worth wasting it using generic anchors like "click here", but don't overdo it ether ( don't use same anchor text tens of times) and make sure your backlink anchor profile is diversified.
