Common mistakes in link building - Five of the most

    1. Use a set of anchor texts instead of using Same single one
    What happens when  you start using single anchor text in each link building technique:
    Search engines algorithms are much sensitive nowadays. They will capture the unnatural manipulation for improving search engine ranking. So use a set of anchor texts instead of using single anchor text.

    2. Rapid Increase in Backlinks looks unnatural too - do not try it any more
    Your links might increase very fast but it wont look natural again to have 1000 links at start of January and 10000 links at the end of January?
    Link building is a step by step, constant process and should be  at natural pace.

    3. Major inlinks coming from a Single Site decreases your page rank
    Your link should be spread among different WebPages.

    4. Over dozing in  Link Exchange gets captured too
    When two publishers exchange  links to have good ranking - we call it link exchange. Do not do that excessively as it will not look natural again.

    5. Building Links from Low Rank Sites is a waste of time
    A link from a quality site is better than 100 links from low rank sites. You can get quality links by using methods like interesting and topic related comments, writing guest posts etc.

      What would constitute enough use of a single anchor text before creating another? Should a different anchor linked be used for it's own tracking purposes for each page or article? I'm new to the 'linking' lingo so I'm not even sure if my qustions make sense, hopefully you'll understand what I'm asking!

        I wouldn't get to hung up on the anchor text thing.

        Your links will look natural if you are building websites and web 2.0 properties by hand and linking from them.

        Anchor text is the part of a link that "shows" while the url (the http part) is hidden.

        So. if you want to try to get a site ranked on the first page of google for a dog training site, you might  use "how to train your golden retriever" as the anchor text.The more pages that link to your dog site with that exact phrase in the anchor text, the better your chances of ranking for that phrase on the first page of search results. 

        The real trouble starts when you use automation software which can post 1000's of links a day without altering anchor text or drip feeding your link bait..It's what the blackhatters and spammers do,but they are on a churn and burn program anyways.

        Hope this helps

      You should write a hub about this instead of having this information in a forum post. It's quite valuable and by turning it into a hub you'll make it more accessible to a wider audience.

      Your back links should be dofollow  which have good value and diverse your links sources.

    Writing a hub would be an excellent idea as it would be more detailed and the information will be complete. That make also give you some credibility as you have no hubs as of now.

    The person who originated this post has been hanging out in marketing forums too long.

    Most of what they are saying is entirely untrue.  Pure garbage.

    Google publishes information on exactly how they determine page rank.  And while the exact variables are not released there is enough information for you to make your own intelligent (Not rehashed mis truths) decisions.
