    This is my first time doing off-page SEO, and I think I'm going to create Web 2.0s. I'll write all the articles myself, and make sure everything is quality. But, the keyword I want to rank for is the same as my domain, so I don't know if I should even create the 2.0s? If I should, should I avoid using the keyword as anchor text at all?

    Quattroporte,

    Like a lot of other things in SEO, it depends on how you do things. Recent updates that involved EMDs were not necessarily targeted at EMDs but a lot of webmasters using spammy tactics also happened to have an EMD as a part of their strategy.

    When building backlinks, the thing you want to avoid is drawing attention to yourself and you do that by making your activities look un-natural. So if you were to go out tomorrow and build 50 web 2.0 properties and make them all link back to your main website with the exact same anchor text, that would look unnatural because today, links are not being built that fast to your site and people aren't using that anchor text. Conversely, if 50 links with exact match anchor text had been built to your site all a long since it was launched, that activity might not look so suspicious. Avoid spikes in data and don't do things that make it look like you are trying to manipulate search results and you will be fine.

    I would suggest starting out with a handful of web 2.0s with exact match anchor text and then look into some other tactics.
    Hope that helps,

    Shawn

    Yeah build links but take care of diversity. Dont target a single keyword, use generic terms, naked urls etc.
