    Everyone, I have found a pretty sneaky way of obtaining unlimited backlinks to high PR websites. The only catch is, someone will notice eventually if I have the correct anchor text. My real question is, how important is anchor text for SERPs. What if I had the correct anchor text for (1000) PR 0 websites, but I had sneaky anchor text for (50) PR 7 websites?

    I really don't ask questions on this forum, as the search button is my best friend. But on this one, I cannot really find a difinitive answer for.

    I m not sure what sneaky way u r talking about- but most spammin involves using keywords in anchor texts- whether you do blasts with Xrumer or comment with Scrapebox.

    I hv been led to blv that its a numbers game. The key is to make it look like a natural link-building. If you have 1000 exactly same 'anchor texts' it'll flag ya easy.

    What i think your concern is whether u'll be 'found' out if you used spammy(adult and such) keywords in your anchor texts? Guess what, its a 'numbers game'....u leave 50 spammy ones and 10 stick that's fair. Just increase the numbers.Do the math.

    As I am not a reputed master of 'spamming' ( far from it) I invite ther guys with their expert opinion here.

    This method is a little more sophisticated than spamming with Xrumer. And the "sneaky" anchor text I speak of doesn't always have to be the same word. It can be any word really, except for one that is actually related to my site. And no, I'm not in the pr0n industry ;)

    Thanks for the feedback.

    My basic question is, which scenario would be better:

    Option #1: 1,000 PR 0 Backlinks with correct anchor text, 50 PR 7 backlinks with incorrect anchor text

    OR

    Option #2: 5,000 PR 0 backlinks with correct anchor text, and zero PR 7+ backlinks.

    Who cares if the anchor text is actually related to your website?

    But, then, whats the point? U won;t get 'relevancy' points from the search engines. If its NOT ur keyword why make it your anchor text?

    Am i getting right or have confused the issue...sorry of i have!

    I read something recently that kind of answers this...

    Do a search for "click here" (the most common anchor text)...Adobe rank no1, and if you look at their site and examine their (back)links - a large portion is simply 'click here' ... so obviously that actual text make an impact

    Of course it makes a difference, it tells Google what the website is about. That is why having Do-Follow is important, but at the same time backlinks are backlinks.
