    Is a #1 allinanchor result a definate indicator of good things to come?


    My site is ranked #1 for allinanchor: for a fairly competitive
    keyword phrase. It's 2 months old; I'm almost certain it's sandboxed.
    My backlinks come from sites as relavant as those linking to my
    competitors and think I may outnumber them almost double as far
    as this specific anchor text. Is this alllinanchor: result a good indicator
    of a high SERP when my site ages out of the sandbox? Should I move
    to other phrases or continue building up this one?

    Based on my own experiences, allinanchor along with respectable positions for allintext and allintitle is an indicator of good things to come. Now you just have to be patient and wait for it to be un-sandboxed.

    Also, I would work on other keywords/phrases. We have been seeing good benefit from that as well since our 4 month old site has started it's climb out of the sandbox earlier this month.

    nutshell - My site has been #1 for allinanchor, allintext, allinurl since June without breaking the top 20. While it's a good step forward, you'll need a lot more linking (varying the anchor text) to build up to top 10 positions.

    I agree. I have a site that is 8 months old that is on top 5 for all inurl,text and anchor for every major keyword, that does not do well in one word keywords, but do very well in 2-3 words kewords. It seems to me that google does not like sites that climb very fast in these criteria...

    Yep, I agree... From experience you need to get a lot of "mixed" anchor text backlinks. I have a site now that's #1 for allinanchor, allintitle, and allintext for a couple keywords and isn't even in the top 1,000 on G. So, allin doesn't mean everything...

    I think its more important where the location of links are. If they are coming from relevant sites/pages it means a lot than having some random link on a page that has nothing to do with your topic. I always find it humourous to see a travel site link on the bottom of page that is dedicated for video games. Like the demographics for video games travels a lot.

    The allinanchor (et. al.) search terms are completely new to me. Is there a tool out there that lets you see where you rank in these types of searches? I'm yet to break in to the top 1000 with my selected keywords in the normal search and wouldn't mind taking a peak at these ones if possible.

    why does everyone want a tool for everything?

    just go to google.com and type in:

    allinanchor:phrase

    only one that matters - and even that is arguable.

    If someone has many keywords to test for allinanchor it is nice to have a tool. Try: http://www.mcdar.net/.

    McDar has a good tool.

    In reference to the above post by gchaney

    When we are talking link weight, does links pointing to internal page play into that or just the external outbound links.

    Also, what is a good rule of thumb, no more than 15, 20, 30, 40 outbound external links ? What is a good target to try and shoot for ?

    WEll in my instance it would be because I'd appear right down the back (if at all) so I could spend all day checking these things.
