There is a site in our niche area which launched about 2 years ago. They got some decent directory links and a few others. Very few with any Anchor text. My site and a competitors have been online for 12 years and have a large backlink portfolio.
All this site does is title every link with the keyword, on every page they place one link at the footer for a targeted keyword. Their blog post are only about a keyword targeted. They might now have up to 10 posts tartgeting a keyword i.e. .....com/blue-widget-1, com.blue-widget-2
They use titles tags like this: blue widget | red widget |
This site now has surpassed both my site and a competitors for several major keywords. Can is only be about keyword density?
