Using a search term as a link

Postby ric » Thu Mar 03, 2005 4:40 am

Something else I just found, someone posted a link in a blog that will use a Google search phrase to list your site in the resluts. Just tested it a bit and it seems to work. Though I don't imagine the crawlers will like it. But at least it will create some popularity for a search phrase, even if it is vague. try this link and see what I mean.

'Hotels in Mallorca' as the link text
[url]http://www.google.com/search?q=mallorca.xcapewithus.com&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8[/url]

Any comments?

that's what people refer to as link reputation...
Using keywords in your text links is good practice. Just don't overdo it.

You can also make images into links. This is very search engine friendly, especially using the alt tag. You use the alt tag, to include terms you want the search engines to register your page for.

For example, lets say you have a video game site. You might have a picture of a Mario Brothers game on it. By setting the alt tag in the image link to "mario brothers video game", that helps the search engines to associate that page to video games.

Alt tags are a good alternative to anchor text. If you do it too much, it can be considered spam. Just don't overstuff them alt keywords.
