In Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts episode 283, one viewer asked if the team have done a test on linking the money site at the footer disclaimer section of the client site.
The exact question was:
2. Disclaimer Link on Clients Sites – As you know there is the long term practice for SEO and Web Design companies to add a link back to their site in the footer disclaimer section on a client site (ie. Web Design and SEO by SEOCompany.com.) I've recently been switching all those links our for “”SEO and Marketing by Brand+Keyword+Location”” with the “”Brand + Keyword + Location”” being the anchor text linking to My SEO Company's GMB Profile and I've seen some big results from it. Have you done any testing related to this? Just curious.
