  • [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.
  • [02:55] Only focus about 5-10% of your energy on anchor text.
  • [03:33] Links impact rankings, but so does the content on your page.
  • [03:55] If you only focus on rich anchor text, your rankings are unsustainable.
