How to write your keywords into a link

 9:11 pm on Oct 31, 2002 (gmt 0)

We all know you need your keywords in the incoming link, right? But how do you word it?

e.g you have the keywords "data recovery". What would you do for writing the link? It seems confusing is you write "Click here for data recovery" because people are used to having the "Click here" text underlined.

What do you suggest?

Jon, how about "Click <linked text>data recovery software<stop link> for more information."

Or don't put "click" at all. I would only use "click here" on an order button or something. I don't think there are many people now who don't know text underlined and highlighted in color are links to something. In most sites it is going to be very cumbersome site if we were to say "click" on every link.

you could write as though a bulleted list with all text followed by a button. the entire line is linked, text and graphic:

data recovery solutions :)
data recovery stories :)
data recovery onsite :)

though of course that gets boring but I think you get the idea

I like that idea Terry. it is so surprising what an alternative viewpoint and brainstorming can do for you.
