    Well, now that all we know that artificial and optimized anchor text for links = SPAM, we need to focus how a natural link looks like

    as I'm a webmaster and it takes me too much thinking as a surfer, how a surfer would link my site to another one?

    using only raw URL: http://makingmoneybestmethodsfornoobs.xyz
    or
    using raw URL with some text after or before: visit this site to make money http://makingmoneybestmethodsfornoobs.xyz
    or
    using only keywords in domain: <a href="http://makemoneybestmethodsfornoobs.xyz">making money best method for anyone (or without spaces makingmoneybestmethodsfornoobs)</a>

    I think the 3rd option is the worst one, as it is supposed normal people doesn't know HTML so cannot create a complete and correct href string, so the fastest and simplest method are 1st and 2nd ones (IMHO the 2nd one the best as people usually gives more information with some text for friends and fellows)

    right? Pls share your ideas on it and which method are you using now
    thanks

    Its more than that... This just scratches the surface. I have a website that gets hundreds of natural links per week and the composition is extremely unique. Keeping in mind that I have done NO unnatural link-building, some of my top anchor texts are the following: click here, websitename.com, www.websitename.com, no anchor text, websitename, website name, visit their site, here, on their store page, my main keyword, sign up here... Basically, its not just the website name, but tons of random things also.

    I think you should mix all of 3 methods and make them randomly in content.

    The most natural way would be text, e.q. makemoneybestmethodsfornoobs.xyz. This is how most of the natural "backlinks" to my site look like. :)

    Interesting question is whether Google is smart enough to count simple text as a backlink.
