Will using the words "blue plastic widgets" help my link popularity for the search term "plastic widgets" at Google?

Do a search on Google for anchor text....you will see The power of Anchor Text.

Explains, text, images etc.

Good resource!

I have personal examples where I have link text for "name widget" - resulting serp=1, but for "name" only, nowhere to be found. Then I add in further "name" links and I get to SERP=1.

Better to have the exact phrase that someone is searching for you for, or a truncated version. While a longer link may help, it will not be as powerful as a shorter link.

I have many recip link partners that have 10+ word links on my site - they are missing out big time. They need this message - but they don't have ears to hear. I can't be bothered trying to second guess what they want to be top for.

Great call. That's what I was wondering. I try to keep my anchor links short and meaningful. I can be #1 for "blue plastic widgets" but nowhere for "plastic widgets". Using both would help that.

I wonder answers of these question..

How long should the anchor link text be?
Does this work "kw1, key frase1, kw2," as link text?
what is more important anchor link text or anchor description?
What the relevance should be with anchor text and wwWebmasterWorldebsite.com's title(or desc.). If mywebsite title and my anchor text title are same Is that OK?

Thanks

Some sites are ranked high with no title, description or page content - just because of link. Link is very important part at the moment, but in the end, just a part of the equation. Other factors need to be right to have the best effect.

Other factors need to be right to have the best effect.

The order in which I consider ranking factors when desinging pages and sites is:

Allintitle:search term
Allintext:search term
Allinanchor:search term
Allinurl:search term

I seem to get the best results using the search term with underscore delimiters in the subdirectory name like:
