Hey guys,

The many years i have been in internet marketing i am yet to discover whether the articles i create for an anchor text backlink have to be super niche specific or just general to get a link.

What i mean is, if i had a site about "super clean table clothes" and i wanted a link back to my site. Would my article have to be about super clean table clothes specifically or could it be about clothes with my author bio have an anchor link into to my "super clean table clothes site".

I do understand if i want to rank my article for super clean table clothes then it can be about that specific topic.

Can anyone shed some light or experience on this.

    Anchor text of your outbound links will have almost no influence on the ranking of your article. To get high rankings, you need to promote your article - create backlinks and social buzz.

    On-page optimization factors like anchor text of outbound links will have almost no influence on the ranking of your article.

    As a matter of fact, your article doesn't have to be directly related to your keyword/anchor.

    The reason why it's good to have content related to your keyword is because the site your publish it is likely to send you traffic and it will convert more when it's targeted.

    I suggest going broad with your content anyway, just center around your niche..
