In episode 101 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked about the footprint issues for syndicated content across different channels in the IFTTT network.
The exact question was:
I have added several additional blogs to my IFTTT network. For each post I am concerned about having 15+ network properties using the exact same anchor text back to the category page. Here is what I have done to diversify the anchor text (this takes less than 5 minutes).
In my post content, I use a long anchor text linking up to the category page. When I publish a post, I activate 4 of the IFTTT recipes. Then I take a word out of the anchor text in the post and activate a few more recipes. And repeat. The result is the syndicated post on the network ends up with 5 versions of anchor text back to the category page.
Do all the syndicated posts need to have the exact same anchor text linking to the category page? Thanks.
