@ Squilookal - thanks for your incitefull response
This is quite a nice thread - and shows there are a lot of ways to think about the same question, but not any answers (to be expected at this point). I wonder if anyone can reccomend the best process post YAHOO explorer for getting a list of your back links and a list of the anchor text. Is there afree tool or combination of tools? Since once you get the CSV together you can sort by ANCHOR text and get a clear picture of your ratio's and start the fix.
Whilst google might ignore internal anchors I wonder how they deal with links from sub domains to root and vice versa that are from same owner.
My whol architecture uses sub domains for shop and support etc and they interlink deeply with 15 years of optimised anchor text - I always used keywords for links - long before google.
After 4 weeks I just cant get my head round the best way to address this without making matters much worse for my ECOM company that is now running at 45% revenue of last years. Employing 5.... soon to be 1. (i'm not hear to moan). But I wld like to find some new best practise guidlines and determine if there is ANY merit of fixing legacy links to the new IDEALS.
