I have a self hosted wordpress blog where I am reviewing clickbank products in a certain niche.
My question is as follows. Am I killing my chances of ranking for a keyword by having anchor text for my main keyword phrase while at the same time have anchor text which are the name of the product on the same page?
The reason I do that is because I provide basic info at the top highlighting the website (which has an embedded affiliate link) along with other program info. I then have the review which contains 3 anchored text links of my main keyword phrase, and at the bottom say "click vendor product name (has affiliate link) to learn more.
Is that bad? Should my anchor texts strictly be one keyword phrase per page?
On that note, would it be bad to have 2 different keyword phrases on 1 page each with 1-2 anchored links (all affiliate)? (same point as above I guess)
Finally, I also write articles (submitted to directories after posted to my site) each with my main anchored keyword phrase. Should they all contain only the main keyword phrase I am targetting, or should some articles target other keywords in terms of anchor text, while the majority focus on the main one?
(Obviously my articles each target 5-8 keywords/phrases)
