    Hi there,

    I am ranking OK for my main keyword for my very small blog which advertises a clickbakn product. This keyword is in the URL and is all over the home page etc.

    The thing is I would like to rank for a few other low competition keywords.

    Can I do this by making posts which are keyword rich and then creating backlinks with the keyword in the anchor text to that particular post? Or am I better off pointing all my backlinks to my home page...

    At the moment I write articles/web 2.0 for various keywords and then use that keyword as anchor text in a backlink to my home page. I guess my question is , is it better to create seperate pages/posts for each keyword I am targetting? And should backlinks point to specific pages/posts or always to the home page? MOst of my keywords are low competition...

    I hope someone can understand what I am on about and help me!

    Thanks!

    I recommend making a few posts which involve the other keywords you want to target plus a post or two with LSI keywords included.

    It is always a good idea to deep link your posts as opposed to just your home page. In addition, for all of your links, try to rotate your anchor text. In other words back link every post and the homepage with all kinds of anchor text for natural variance.

    TIP: Something that has worked for me in the past is to use a target keyword plus some other words that make it longer tail. ie: weight loss tips + for women

    This will always include your main keywords in your anchor text while providing variation. Google suggestion will show you such variations for many keywords.

    Just the sort of reply I was after. Good advice there - I will be putting that into practice today.
