I'm starting to use anchor text to post backlinks, but I'm still not quite sure what I'm doing. I have converted a URL into the backlink I want, but it never quite works when I post it to forums. I think I'm posting to forums that do not allow this kind of backlink. Could somebody list several forums or sites that will allow anchor-text backlinks?
One of the secrets to posting to alternate forums, aside from HubPages is that most forums allow you to post a "signature". That would be where you are allowed to post a "backlink".
Here is the way that I do it personally. I use this string of code it's simply saved in a word document and then I cut and past when I need it. Here you go.
So you cut and paste into where you want it to appear then you take out the part where it says YOUR LINK URL and simply add the URL in there without any spaces and by the way leave quotes. Then for your anchor text you would delete the part between the less than and greater than signs that says YOUR LINK TEXT and place your link text there which is basically your anchor text. It's that simple.
an example would be
So the url that i used is the one from this page and the anchor text i used was my cool reply and that's how it works. Good luck.
Most forums have cut down on allowing followed links in forum postings. The same is true for comments sections on websites. On most forums, you are usually allowed to set up a profile page and you could post your anchor text link there. Also, article sites will allow you to post a followed, anchor text link in the author's bio. (Of course, that will require the writing of about 500 words just to get the link!) Links aren't as easy to get as they once were.
On HubPages, you can post an anchor text link in an article.

I keep up with Google news fairly regularly to see what's coming down the pipe. I still feel vague self-righteousness over raising the pre-Panda alarm, only to be scoffed at for suggesting that Google might start ranking sites by quality of content across a domain, not just on a page-by-page basis....

I'm curious to hear if there are any hubbers, who saw a big drop in traffic after the most recent Google Panda and Penguin updates, have fixed their issues and are getting good traffic again yet?I think it would be good for us all to know what changes brought about your renewal of traffic, since...

I have learned through forum discussions that including an outgoing anchor text link in a text capsule in a hub is good idea when a) the word or phrase used as the anchor text closely relates to what the hub is about, b) the webpage linked to closely relates to what the hub is about, and c) the...

Hi, Hubbers:I just published "IBS Management" and I need to make some improvements before I resubmit it for a vertical site. I understand everything I need to edit except this: I have source links for several sections of my article, but Hub Pages asked that I convert them to in-text links...

If this is not the correct place to ask my questions, please let me know where to go on HubPages, or if I should send an email to the people running HubPages.A few months ago an expert hubber with lots of experience and success for a time offered free critiques of hubs in one of the forums. I asked...
