    Hey there, I want to know what google think about backlinks with other anchor texts than your keywords. For example when you do blog commenting if you want your comment to be approved you won't use the name Iphone, so you will you Victor (just a random example).

    What is the value for that backlink?

    I do this sometimes when I write on blogs where the admin approves the comments. I think it's better to get a link with the anchor "Frank" than no backlink at all. I imagine it's worth a lot less than if you had the anchor. D:

    My advice is to build just quality backlinks. There are so many places from where you can get a valuable backlink that it would be a waste of your precious time to do anything else.

    The keyword near the anchor, like this: keyword #a#here#/a#
    This is good variant. Some part of your link profile must be noanchored links.
    I want to ask you, what do you think about the influence of picture links with keyword in alt attribute?

    The value of a link is mostly determined by what page it is on.

    Andrew correct, but I don't see problem of another anchor text. If page is good but I can't use right anchor - I'll use anyhing else

    I still think guest posts can help. It's one of the effective strategies along with link exchange or recommendations and product reviews. Guest posting is a great way to get a link as long as you do it the right way.

    Posting your link with the anchor text is very good according to google but you need to use variation in the keywords for every anchor text.

    You can use it in comment body, so that it seems to be original and the mean of your text seems to be according to the blog. Getting these links from niche related blogs is quite tough but very good.
