    A really interesting find today, i was checking a site that ranks on #3 for a fairly competitive keyword

    The Site Has a Total of 28k Backlinks

    Upon Checking its backlinks, i found 25k Links are from 1 site (WTF LOL) -- All Links are with 1 anchor (Brand Name) and Link To Home Page!

    Remaining 3k Backlinks are from 4-5 Other Sites, In a Similar Fashion --anchor (Brand Name) and Link To Home Page!

    Seems like the guy has set up some kind of auto posting shit on a site and each page gives 1 link To His Other Site.

    Interesting Find huh?

    Its probably a sitewide link from a high PR domain and they work pretty well.

    In my local niche 1 site ranking above me has 2000 of its 3000 approx . backlinks from a single domain , same anchor text which is a keyword placed in the site wide footer.
    This is completely opposite to what I have learnt .
    On further researching domains which were placed on the footer along with my competitor . It seemed some kind of link wheel was formed as some of the domains which were linking to my competitor were also linked through that domain. And most of these websites had 95% anchor texts as their keyword.
    According to updates this should have been slapped . explain ?

    I agree with you today I also found many sites with keyword in their anchor and and 10% nude url backlink, 20% click here or something like that and 70% anchor text ranking on top. Don't know what the hell Matt Cutts doing.

    There are a lot of sites with < 0.5% keyword density on page that are getting away with 70%+ exact match anchors. At least after penguin 2.1.

    it is side-wide links. I see this all the times. In my niche some guys are ranking quite nicely with 1000's of links coming just from handful from very high authority, page-rank websites. Paid links - site-wide all the way.

    Mostly in untouched niches, these type of sites will rank. Because Matt don't have time to touch all niches lol.

    When searching through google, I found few sites that are ranking only have raw url as anchor text for thousands of backlinks with not using any single keyword as anchor and vice versa as well.

    Matt Cuts also confirmed that for sidewidth and footer links, it will be calculated as 1 link even though your backlinks checker shows 25K links.

    I have noticed many sites ranking this way nowadays. Just build backlinks to your website (use tiered backlinks to be safe), and keep on changing the dates of your articles to rank better.
