    Hi fellow BlackHatters.

    When I first learned SEO I learned about link relevancy meaning that if I had a site about water mellons a link from a water mellon site would count more than a link from a site about puppies (if all other factors were the same).

    But now I am in doubt, and a google search gives different answers...


    I am promoting a norweigian site about kids toys through social network submission (through senuke social network module).

    Should I write my articles in norweigian?
    Should I write articles about kids toys?
    Or can I just write about whatever I like if I include my keyword in the anchor text?


    Hope for your help - thanks in advance :)

    Noone who knows if the article text has any relevance for the power of the links?

    Practise shows that Google algorithms are so clever that they can relate translated terms in different languages. The best proof for that is when an English site is being viewed by, e.g., a visitor from France, Google AdSense ads will show up in French! This is a fact, which has been numerously verified.

    So, what all that means? This suggests that Google is very likely to apply the same policy to backlinks - it accounts for relevancy and passes link juice from a ?donor? site in one language to the recipient site in other language, effectively translating the texts and finding similar terms in both languages.

    I found this text by doing a search on Google. Makes sense but then again you can never be sure with Google. I would definitely like to know more on this subject.

    I would write in Norwegian and on kids toys. Relevance dominates, it's as simple as that.

    We are talking about 'ANCHOR TEXT' as being the only relevant factor in the backlink ...

    The article / nice chat on social networking site can be about absolutely anything, however the anchor text itself should be broadly relevant to the site that it points to ..

    Obviously trying to squeeze in an anchor text about kids toys whilst talking about vintage cars is an art unto itself, however, it can still be done without any penalty to the anchor text itself ..

    Also, the 'article' itself does NOT need to be a gazillion words to obtain the link credit from google .. I have seen and witnessed proof that links can be validated with as little as 30 words ... don't forget it is YOUR social network site that we are talking about here, and it is up to you how many words and about which subjects you wish to write about but you will need to be creative to squeeze in unrelated 'anchor text' links within the body of the 'article' . .the only thing I would suggest is .. post on a regular basis !

    Have fun ... Respect, Goldie...

    Thank you for the replies, nice to see that I am not the only one who is kinda confused - 3 answers and 2 different opinions.

    I know that the anchor text is important, and I know that you can rank with only forum profile links (which are very irrelevant) so I am having trouble understading why I should use two hours of veeeeery boring work to write a nice spinned article in norweigian when I can download and autospin an english one in like 2 minutes.

    Has anyone ever done any test to put relevant informative articles up against junk articles and compared those two?
