    Lets say I have a car reseller company. Brand = "Muler Cars", domain = mulercars.com

    Muler Cars has branches in New York, Boston, Philadelphia

    Money keywords would be: cars New York, cars Boston, cars Philadelphia

    I am thinking now how risky it is to use "Muler Cars New York", "Muler Cars Boston", "Muler Cars Philadelphia" as anchor text.

    Obviously they are branded. Muler Cars actually exist in these cities. Thus we could think it is a natural anchor text and not risky.

    However, they also contain the money keywords.

    Any suggestions how aggressive I can got with these kind of keywords as anchor?

    There is a fine line between what Google decides is a brand name and what they will see as someone gaming an EMD. Since you have the company name "Muler" in the anchor text you are a lot safer than if it was "Dentist Seattle Wa" and you tried passing that off as a brand name. I use a lot of brand name + keyword in my backlinking and it has done well for me. I would pull the trigger. Let us know how it works.

    thanks man. Could you specify how much you use name + keyword (percentages)?
