    if youre trying to get ranked for the keyword "banana" without the quotes, will you get a better result, or the same result, using the anchor text "banana" instead of "big banana" without the quotes.

    Im asking because Im trying to rank for 2 keywords, I want to rank for the one word keyword more, but since the 2 words keyword contains the one word keyword, Im wondering if I should put both in my anchor text.

    I would think you would rank better for big banana as an anchor, only because there are so many sites already established with the word banana as their keyword.

    I think that if you have "big banana" you will rank for both "big banana" and "banana". "big banana" would be more of a primary term and "banana" would be a secondary term. However according to the stuff I read it still depends on the landing page key words, if you use "Banana" for anchor text and the landing page is about "oranges" it wont matter if you use "banana" or "big banana".
