In episode 346 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked about the best way to using keyword heavy backlinks.

The exact question was:

I bought a lot of links (which I shouldn't have) which are keyword heavy (like 2000 links).. what is the best way to deal with them? Google tanked my site 30-40 positions. Will a press release help dilute these anchor text profile? This is a client site. We have a lot of G stacks done already from another service. Wondering which MGYB products I can order that will help me out of the mess here!

On Episode 49 of our weekly Hump Day Hangout SEO Q&A webinar we had a viewer with a question about how to correctly use anchor text when linking within a tiered structure. Specifically, they were interested in finding out how to vary anchor text ratios and whether or not to use branded terms, broad terms, and navigational terms such as “click here”.

The specific question asked was:

What is best practice for anchor text when back linking from Tier 3 and Tier 2 properties? Should you use broad, exact or branded? Geo modified or no? What is best practice for backlinking from Tier 1?

Also, what anchors should you use when blasting your web 2.0 properties?

Check out the video above for a quick rundown of best practices when backlinking in a tiered network structure.
