    I found this info in the Internet, what do you think about this?


    • Exact match anchor text is back in play. Exact match anchor text means that a link from one site to another is linked by a keyword phrase vs. the company name or the words ?click here.? Sites that have exact match anchor text links over 37% are ranking well. Related anchor text of almost 100% double again. This is a complete reversal of previous updates and quite frustrating to those of you who have worked hard at building high quality links.
    • Sites that have no site wide links are ranking well. The exception to this rule is the previously mentioned forum links in the footer.
    • Sites that link to two competing sites vs. one are ranking well. For instance, if a site A is a news site that links to two sources of information to illustrate a point, site B and C, it will rank better than if it just links to site B as a source. Varying the link text slightly by using a plural version of a word to differentiate is better.
    • Sites that have a limited number of inbound links from high Page Rank sites are ranking well. Sites with links from very well-known sites like NYTimes.com or TechCrunch.com continue to rank well.
    • There seems to be some cross over with sites that were previously impacted by Panda. For example Hubpages seems to have made a big gain back where as Tumblr got destroyed (or that could just be because Yahoo bought them).

    Until we will not start to use paid traffic, we will always play in this stupid google game where no one knows what is good and what is bad especially because there are no clear rules even in their heads.

    Remember, everything you read on the Internet is always 100% true.

    I seriously doubt exact match Anchor overoptimization is back in play. Imo futures updates will only go towards lower % exact match anchors. Most 100% white hat sites have very few exact match links pointing to them

    Nothing is over yet. There are huge fluctuations going on NOW in the SERPs... it means any conclusion that is drawn now, is not made by a professional SEOer.

    ONLY when SERPs will be stable we could start analyze them.

    remember the people that say they know what's up, they don't, and they give bad advice to others, keep clear of them
    anyone foolish enough to make an assessment before the dust settles is not someone to listen to
    it'll be at least a week or two from now before the dust settles from this update.

    Co citation in your outbounds to established authority is something I've been keeping an eye on.
    It does 2 things

    Enocourages people not to be so selfish and only interlink of self link...
    It creates natural links for others (which is what Google would like to see)

    For all that - the benefit is.. Link out from time to time. What the rules are is something I'll leave to SEOmetrics - but this seems a solid piece of advice and one I've heard repeated several times recently.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^ For all that - this is true. 2 weeks or so before P2 settles.
    To extrapolate specifics before then is pissing into a strong breeze.

    Wet legs and a bad smell later.

    Its a game guys , and google is trying to be the referee , but of course they themselves don't know the result ...all they want is not to become the next altavista or myspace , so they keep trying new things and keep screwing their own reliability.
