How to target a search engine keyword

By Edited Nov 3, 2015 0 0

Anchor tags are a great way to improve your website's ranking for a specific keyword or search phrase. For example, to target Toronto Website Developer, I use anchor tags which link those words to my website. This how to article will show you exactly what I'm talking about.

Things You Will Need

1. A website you want to link to. 2. A targeted search term or phrase "personal finance" is not a targeted search phrase. "Tips on how to save money" is targeted. 3. 30 minutes to leave high quality comments on high quality websites.

Step 1

First thing to do, search for your chosen term or phrase. Note some of the sites that are being returned in the top 10 results. Now, write down the domain name of one of those sites (e.g., www.ebuidmusclefast.com). In Google/Yahoo/Bing, search links: www.ebuildmusclefast.com -- this will return sites that are linking to "www.ebuildmusclefast.com".

Step 2

Now, with the list of sites that are linking to your competitors, identify a handful that will allow you to leave track backs (links) to your site. The best are sites where you can leave anonymous comments on articles or blog posts. However, the comments you are going to leave should be helpful, pertinent to the conversation/article and non-spammy. This is important because a) spamming another persons site for your own personal gain is just plain wrong b) your comments will get deleted anyways and you'll just be wasting your time.

Step 3

There are two options here and they depend on how the site's you'll be commenting on are set up: 1. Most sites allow you to leave your name, email and website. Your name is actually a link to your site or the anchor tag. If this is the case, leave your name as your keyword term/phrase. Again, some webmasters and bloggers may see this as spam so what I sometimes do is "Drupal Video Tutorials | Peter" or "Peter | Drupal Video Tutorials". 2. If sites don't provide this option or you created a membership which includes a signature for all your comments, you'll need to create an anchor tag. To manually do this, use the code YOUR KEYWORD HERE This is simple HTML code and not some kind of hackers script. When using it, just remove the spaces around the
That's it. Leave a couple meaningful comments on some popular sites and you should see your site ranking higher for your targeted keywords.

Tips & Warnings

I am not suggesting you spam a site or leave crappy comments with the sole intention of leaving a link back to your site. However, most bloggers understand the SEO game and are happy to have you track back to your site. If they aren't, don't keep using this technique on their site.
