    been thinking about getting involved in bum marketing "article marketing", and also bum marketing with yahoo answers, well anyways i really have one question, when generating back links for my articles or my yahoo answer's question,... how much and how should i vary up the anchor text in the backlinks i get?,.. for instance if i was trying to rank one of my articles for the keyword "dog training" i wouldn't want all of my backlinks to say "dog training", because then google will probably think it was spammy and i probably wouldn't rank that high, so how should go about varying up the anchor text in my links?

    Thanks

    Building on your example with "dog training", I'd suggest taking it a step further and finding various long tails for "dog training", such as "dog training course", "dog training tips", etc. You can just plug your keyword into a tool (such as my free keyword tool ;) to get a list of longer keywords.

    You could then use that for variation in your anchor text. If you didn't have any additional long tails to promote, I'd suggest just trying to make it look as natural as possible. Maybe you could change a word or two to make it a better match with whatever the article is you are creating. I don't think its a huge deal though, there's a big difference in doing something like article marketing, where you get a link for every article you submit, and spamming 1,000's of blogs. Rotating anchor text becomes just a bit more important then!

    Answer is simply YES.
    do not use same anchor text for all the backlinks. Try to randomize them. Better to go for some totally absurd one like 'click here' types for few links.
    Also you can have some long anchor text with words 'dog' or 'training' or both in them.
    When it comes to rank for competetive keyword in google, try to be as paranoid as you can. It pays. :D:D

    To build on what arpitagarwal82 said (at the same time too, lol), it's also good to have some links just be http://yoursite.com, because it looks natural to the search engines because realistically people will be linking to you like that sometimes.
