Topic Keywords on Campaign Details

  • Paul Reply

    I want to know how this will work for a business that still wants to rank for the "Rich Town Across the County" For example, say I have a client that has a sign business that is located in the town of Round Lake. They want their business found in the rich town across the county called Lake Forest. In the 'old way' the article would have a sentence like the following:

    Business use [a h ref="http://www.domainofthesigncompany.com/" title="Lake Forest Signs"]Lake Forest Signs[/a] to promote their services.

    However, with the new way, the anchor text won't be able to have the town name Lake Forest anymore.

    My account rep told me that since the term "Lake Forest Signs" is still the target keyword, in the new way, somehow the link using the topic keyword will still help the target keyword...but he didn't know how specifically it would work.

    I'm guessing that the following will be done but I want to verify this is true:

    Business use [a h ref="http://www.domainofthesigncompany.com/" title="Lake Forest Signs"]outdoor signs[/a] to promote their services.

    Please verify that this is the new way these links will be created. If this is the case, please explain to me how having the word Lake Forest in the title attribute of the A Tag is helping as much as it being in the actual anchor text. From what I understand...it doesn't have nearly as much power. And if that is the case, although this method will still work....it will just take many more links than if it was in the anchor text. Therefore, I'll need to adjust my clients expectations on how fast they can expect to rank in the towns that they want to rank in.
