    So my question is...we all know that anchor text is important...but what about a plain text such as http://www.linky.com I know that G will still see that as a link and follow it etc but will it pass any juice? and would the text located around it effect the theme of the link (LSI)?

    So i guess the questions as well is how much does LSI play a part in keyword placemant as compared to just anchor text.

    Here is a good example that the anchor text is important:

    Google 'click here' and you will see that Adobe is #1, because everybody links to it with the anchor text 'click here to download adobe pdf'. ;)

    So unless you want to rank for linky.com you better put keywords in the anchor text.

    Depending on how spammy your niche is (gambling etc) you will need to treat your anchor profile differently.

    You want most of your anchors to be your keyword, but you also need to make it look natural with plenty of http links and "click here", "this site" etc. Google will penalise or prevent ranking if your anchor texts are 100% keyword exact.

    The worse your niche is for spam, the more natural you need to look.
