  • [01:10] Go to Ahrefs and type in the URLs that are at the top of page 1 for the terms for which you are trying to rank.
  • [01:45] If you are building links naturally, you won’t be able to control the anchor text all the time.
  • [02:25] Once the cup is overflowing, you will be hit with an algorithmic penalty.
