Related with SEO, it seems like there are many questions that keep being asked by many people in 2015. Therefore, in this article we are going to give the right answers for most common requests.

1. Should I build “Anchor Text” Links?

This is one of the most frequent questions that have been asked. So, the research study has been conducted to find out the answer. The sample size of 16,000 random keywords has been collected and each of the top 20 Google positions for each of them is taken.

After that the research examines the backlink data of each page, to see if the exact match keyword was present in the anchor text of incoming links.

Clearly exact match anchor text links do correlate with high rankings. However, the study still continues.

From the original 16,000 keywords, we ran a filter to pick out only those keywords where the top 5 results’ UR (Ahrefs’s URL Rank) had standard deviation less than 30% of their average value. In other words, we wanted to exclude the influence of a powerful backlink profile and only focus on the effect of anchor text links.

Even though, exact match anchors are less so than partial match anchors but it is still positively correlate with rankings.

Therefore, the answer to this question is anchor text rich links will be definitely good as long as we do it in a white hat way.

  • 404 the page: if you can’t reach the site owner to remove the link, then you need to 404 the page where the bad links are leading to. If you do choose this option, then make sure to check if there were any quality sites which were also linking to the page and if so, ask them to update their links and point it a replacement URL.
