Is Associated Text in Firefox the same as Alt Text / Anchor Text?

Hi guys,

I've paid advertising with some blogs and on one of the blogs the ad shows in Firefox as:

Associated Text: 'mysite.com - keyword keyword keyword'

Now ad I have this ad on every single page (1660 pages) of the blog does this run the risk of a penalty and should I have this as just mysite.com?

I was hit by Penguin before on a previous domain and want to clear this from happening again.

Thanks in advance!

I'd definitely make sure the links are nofollowed and then not worry too much about the text.

I presume you are talking about "Associated Text: something" that shows in Firefox when you right click on the image and select "View Image Info". The text shown in there is the alt text of the image.

Yes, I would do as JD_Toims says.

Thanks guys, the one in question is no followed. I checked a couple of other ads I have and they don't have a no follow markup, but also there is no associated text.

In this instance as there is no keyword associated shall I leave those alone too?

I personally think it would be safer to nofollow these without alt text too as these are paid ads.
