But for the last month I have ONLY been building links using "blue widgets"
In addition, to the various hypothetical modifiers, like cool, best, awesome blue widgets, you really should mix in some branded anchor text links (like "YOURBRAND blue widgets" and even just "YOURBRAND") to deep pages and the home page. Lots more weight being placed on branding and ratio of branded links/citations to other anchor text on sites (IMO), and trusted, quality sites tend to have a higher ratio of branded anchor links in their link profiles.
My 2 cents.
