    hi, bhw

    learned a huge amount these past few months doing stuff, getting penalized for half of my websites, also getting some great results.

    i'm looking at my ahrefs stats for my website. what does the anchor cloud represent? i have a keyword that i'm trying to dilute and from the other metrics it looks like i've diluted them enough.

    it's 10% for anchor phrases/referring domains, 1% for anchor phrases/referring pages. the numbers are even less for anchor terms for both domains and pages.

    but why does it show the keyword as the first to appear in the anchor cloud? the percentage is the same (10%), but why doesn't it show the generic anchor text that i've used to dilute the money kw?

    and will this effect my rankings? i plan on pointing 100+ high pr links to the root domain.

    i've also added links to the inner pages.
