    Let's say I build backlinks via blog commenting and try to rank my website high for certain search phrase - "cheapest webhosting deals" for example. Obvisiously using that phrase in blog commenting (name -field) makes it look very spammy and most likely it aint going to be accepted by the moderator.

    So what if I just use a personal name in the name -field? Will it still help my website get better rankings for that particular search phrase? Or is the anchor text THAT important?

    the anchor text is *THAT* important.

    It is how google knows that other people think your site is the place to go to for "cheapest webhosting deals"
    Although, you do make an excellent point

    I have found, that using scrapebox blasts to my domain with genuine names help increase the power of the homepages. and Xrumer blasts, with anchor text in profiles, really help with certain tough keywords.

    Well, you're right - it does look spammy. But don't worry about that, just about any comments these days left on blogs seem like spam - haha!

    Anyway, back on topic. You can blast a whole lot of websites with your keyword anchor text in the name field, and then immediately after check which links are live. The ones that are live are obviously auto approve blogs. Save these, for future use - where you can promote other websites using anchor text as the name, without having to worry about it looking spammy or not, as you will know they are not moderated.

    Perhaps you can even build a list of auto approve sites first, using fake URL's and anchors, to test which domains are auto approve and then spam to them later with your anchor text for your actual money site.

    I am not an expert, but I believe the anchor text is a big portion for you trying to 'rank' for a certain keyword (anchor text in this case). The way I see it is, sure, your site has a lot of backlinks pointing to it, but Google wants to see WHY or for what keyword you're generating those links, so that when someone searches Google for that keyword, it knows your site is popular and a good term to serve.

    Anyway, that's how I see it :)

    and when your finding/making those aa domain lists, be sure to separate the no follow ones from the better ones.
