There has been a great amount written about which types of links are the best, which work best and which ones to avoid.
I hope to refer to this in more depth at a later date but all I will say at this point in time is that (in my opinion) any links are good and indeed there are some Article Directory scripts that only report links in their basic url form as opposed to anchor driven variants.
The other thing to remember folks is that the anchor phrase used in inbound links only represents one of several factors in Google Algorithm and not the only factor. Bear in this mind and also consider the other (quite often) hidden aspect to all of this and this is the fact of IP spread.
This is quite often overlooked by a lot of folks and even when considered by most still don’t completely understand this. It is not always just a case of just getting links from sites with just a slight variation of C Class IP address.
People seem to forget that actually it is much better if you can fill your boots with links from as many A and B Class IP’s first if possible.
For more information about A and B Class IP’s and actually about Internet Protocol matters in general then go here:
