I've always been curious of external linking strategies but not sure if I've heard opinions on the strength of a four or five word link. The reason for the question lies in trying to make a link not look like an obvious SEO tactic and possibly accepted by more webmasters or website owners.
Let's look at green widgets. Rather than using "green widgets" as the anchor I prefer using something like "consumer guide to green widgets" embedded within a sentence. The preference is to gain SERP positions of green widgets.
Does the added text dilute the effect on the desired phrase green widgets?
Thanks for any opinions!
