    Do you think doing a link with your brand plus anchor text helps boost anchor ratings? Anyone try this out?

    Thanks

    Brand anchors? I usually do 80% brand anchors. Example if my site is blackhatworld.com then I would use "blackhatworld" or "Black Hat World" as my anchor. If you meant "Blackhatworld seo" I haven't tried it.

    Yeah it's a great little way to diversify your anchor text profile even more, and is effective. As for everything : don't over-do. It's 50/50 here: not totally on the safe side but not over-optimizing too.

    I'm trying to keep my anchors to a minimum. Some of my keywords are floating around 8-12 position so I'm trying to use creative anchors to avoid over optimization.

    Yes, you can use it,it is more effective but your domain should be related to the brand domain you are using.
    It will help you to get many unique visitors.Be clear that it should not be an exact match.

    That's what I mean- brand+ anchor but I'm also working to have mostly branded anchors, like you mentioned. It does seem to be the norm these days for lot of ranking sites.

    Yes indeed. Always make sure your brand anchor / naked url have a higher percentage than your targeted keywords.
