    Hi,

    I understand that in a pyramid, tier one keywords should be the ones you are gunning for.

    But what about Tiers 2 and 3? Must they be related or can they be made-up stuff?

    Hi,

    i use for T2 and T3 keywords that are not so specific as T1.

    Example:

    Keyword = Android Tablet PC

    then is use for T1 and T2 keywords like:

    Computer Hardware
    or related topics like ...
    Laptop Hardware

    It can be same keyword or just a random one.

    When using same keywords then the tier 1 links can temporarily rank higher than your money site (this is just at the beginning)

    Cheers

    Thanks for all the replies.

    So far I've been using random, using a script I've created.

    But I've been wondering if using random is only good for getting the links indexed. It may not pass juice if I build further layers of backlinks, if all of them are using random anchor texts. Not sure if that could be the case.

    Keep the larger percentage of them generic or long-tail. Too much keyword focus down the pyramid can over-optimise. You want a balanced and natural look.

    It also depends on the link type. i.e. if it's comments or profiles, then it looks far more natural (and helps avoid deletion) if you use a name - rather than a keyword.
