I’ve decided to make a little change to the rules for the Review My Blog for a free linkback promotion. From now on, a review must link to this post and the blog home page using any of the following anchor text:
- make money
- make money online
- make money at home
- making money
- make money from home
- make money on the internet
Here’s an example of what I want.
Other than the above requirements, you are free to say whatever you want in the review – good or bad. You are also free to link to any articles I’ve written as part of the review. The post must be a review of this blog. You can not mix it with any other posts or reviews.
The Importance Of The Anchor Text
This post is also a lesson on the importance of linking with keywords or phases. In the Evil Nintendo Wii Blog Contest, I asked people to link to me using “root of all evil.” If you do a Google search for that phrase, you’ll see I am now ranked number three, just behind Wikipedia and RootOfAllEvil.com.
While it’s fun to rank for root of all evil, not many people search for that phase. However, according to the Overture keyword selector tool, there are over 44,000 searches every month for make money online. If I can get on page one of Google for that phrase, it would mean a flood of new traffic.
Since I am asking you to link to me with a specific anchor text, I am going to offer you the same thing. Review my blog according to the above rules and I’ll link to your review and I’ll link to your blog home page using whatever anchor text you want. Just don’t use “make money online”.
If you’ve posted a review of my blog before and want to do it again under the new rules, feel free to do so. This is great way to get linked back to your blog using a proper anchor text. Once your review is posted, send me an email with the URL and the text you want to anchor your home page.
