Most people link to me after receiving an email when they list there site on my site. The email contains the code to link back.
I am thinking of changing that code to have two links, both to the same site, but break up the keywords. Ie:
Looking for <a herf=domain.com>blue</a> <a herf=domain.com>widgets</a>?
To the end user, it will look (almost) like a single link. To google, and other search engines, it should rank higher for widgets, no?
I could care less about the keyword "blue", as it is all to generic, but a top 3 for widgets would be great! :)
You are absolutely right in your reasoning.
Go for it and I'm pretty sure you will do great. Keywords are great for us too. Google usually rewards sites that make good use of them, plus it will benefit your users too.
if the link text is blue widgets, then i think that both these keywords are "passed on" both individually (probably with very similiar weighting) and as a phrase.
however if you have 2 links. blue & widgets you may be now or in the future in a situation where the second link to the same page is discounted - this could be serious for you as your targeted keyword is in the second link.

Looking for Blue <a href="http://www.domain.com">Widgets</a>
and just make the widgets part the link?
