    Sorry if this question was covered on here before. If I used anchor text for example

    Best Free Online Video Games

    Would I get ranking for ONLY that long tail keyword?

    or would I get ranked for these keywords also?: best free online games, online video games, free online video games, video games

    Thanks in advance for the answers

    Yes you do get some juice for those keywords out of such an anchor text. How much exactly is unknown but I know it does work as I use this as part of my linking strategy to cover LSI keyword extensions.

    I believe it would rank for all those, however, I believe you're diluting the weight of your anchor text by doing so. Wouldn't you prefer to optimize for a more exact keyword/phrase?

    I agree, you will get juice for many terms, but the exact term will benefit you the most. Best stick to what you think is obtainable and don't worry about the other stuff.
