    For example lets say I am doing blog comments to diversify my anchor text portfolio and I want to use the 4 types of URL's that google sees as different from each other like:

    mysite.com, http://www.mysite.com, www.mysite.com, and http://mysite.com

    Does google also want to see mysite.com going to mysite.com or is it fine if mysite.com is the anchor text but goes to http://www.mysite.com? Does google just see the anchor text and not the destination URL to be considered as a different URL anchor text? Thanks.

    Yes of course - why wouldn't it be? :) Any anchor text can go to any URL.

    when you use www - google thinks that it is another website - like you are pointing on subdomain

    Using your default index URL is the best.

    There are always 2 version of your domain.

    1) www.yourdomain.com
    2) yourdomain.com

    It may seem same for you but for search engines there appear like 2 different site. One best thing to do ... is to redirect any of the version to the another. 301 redirect. This way google will find out about the preferred domain. And yeah your naked url works better this way.

    Just my 2 cents

    Go to google and search your domain name using the site: prefix. Note whether your website is listed with or without www as well as with or without the trailing slash at the end of your domain name. Use it exactly as it is listed, just vary your anchor texts to give your website the best juice.

    I create anchors with both www and without www. Basically, what we're trying to do is emulate how actual humans would create the links. Some people might type the www and some might not. Not everyone cut and pastes from the address bar. As for the <a href="%Target"> target of the link, I always choose how my domain is setup.
