    I'm seeing guys ranking for medium competitive terms with nothing more than PR blog comments.

    Of course there is no relevancy to their money site here, and there using excessive exact anchors like 70%.

    Just wondering, assuming I copied every single backlink they had down to a tee, but made it so my anchors were healthy; under 10% exact. Could I rank well and sustain it? Like is there any penalties for irrelevant blog comments long term as long as I get my anchors right?

    I typically don't delve into shitty blog comments for links, but hey its free links and I see it working for competitors for this specific niche.

    I see, I'm really not familiar with blog comments for link juice. Do you know how much less PR/PA/DA is distributed to your site than if your link was contextually in an article?

    I know the PR would be spread thinner and thinner depending on how many commenters spam there link in there, but isnt it marginally lower to begin with because its a comment?

    Those are good links. But you need more than those, in manual review your linkprofile looks very unnatural if there is only blog comments...

    Yea thats a concern but on a medium niche I wouldnt expect a manual review. Im more concerned with tripping algorithmic penalty.

    Do you know what the reason for the excessively high anchor ratio is? Im seeing sites of 8 months old with 80% exact ranking. How do they not get penalized?

    It's only a matter of time till they get smacked so I'd say this is a churn method.

    You can use those and stay in the rankings but you need a lot more diversity to do so. Diversifying the anchor texts and backlinked URLs is key.
