    Question. When doing your Tier 2 and below linking what anchor text are you using. Are you using still your main keywords diverised? Are you only using generic anchors like LOOK HERE, MORE INFO, or you doing something else.

    Reason I ask this is because I saw a couple debates about this and just wonder what you guys think. Personally I have been treating the tier 2 linking using the same anchors sa my tier 1. My main keywords mixed up. What works best for you to BOOST up those tier 1 links.

    Thank you

    In essence, diversify your keywords, your main keywords could be 3 on tier 1 with 15 sites,

    you can then have more LSI keywords on tier 2 with 50+ sites and tier 3 as well.

    Don't forget to also use your naked URL in the first tier.

    good thoughts guys. I have been doning Tier 1 (main keywords + LSI keywords + generic) and Tier 2 (main keywords + Lsi + Generic) so we so far are all on the same track it seems

    Mix it up.

    You need a combination of raw link, generic anchor and keyword anchor.

    You really want to diversify your keyword, you don't want your tier 1 links outranking you ;)

    First, when one goes beyond 3 tiers deep (less in most instances in which some sort of link indexer/service is employed) one is doing absolutely nothing other than calling inorganic attention to back link URLs. The end result, quite invariably, is a penalization of some or another magnitude 1, 2, 3, 5 (whatever) months down the line.

    Second, your question, OP, is -- as it is with ALL things SEO -- niche dependent. The scrappier, no-one-wants-this-shit niches that are already spammed to death can handle multi-level tiering, since Google can only base current algorithmic evaluations on historical averages. Other, far more 'high-brow' niches, however, in which one attempts to slam-through utterly inorganic linking that a bonobo could be trained to recognise as inorganic will be slapped to the back of the bus immediately.

    Short version: for anyone, anywhere, to be able to insightfully, and therefore accurately, answer your question, OP, including myself, you need to provide FAR more specific information.

    Blixx: This was not really a question based on niches but just in general. I ask this because I wonder does it hurt us that our keywords pointing to our good Tier 1 links may be in trouble since they are using a mix of keywords and generics but the links from these tier 2 & 3 are from AA comments, image sites, bookmarks etc. You know the BLAST type of links.

    I gotcha, my dood; but my comment(s) still stand. Regarding SEO, there is nothing, at all, "in general" about it. Indeed, it is generalisations that get good people in the worst trouble.

    Hope you, and other receptive parties, catch my drift.
