    Fathom made very good points! Varying anchor texts while having your major keyword will benefit you more in rankings.

    the value of just ""elephants"" makes the weight of the unique content on the pages easier to rank... and I would say "all would be top 10"...

    ...so what's wrong with that.

    IMHO -- Opinions are great but use a little logic in sharing you opinion -- because "my opinion is" - you're offering really bad advice.

    I have read each and every post of this thread. I have not asked this out of sheer ignorance. I just queried Obaid, who just gave a conclusion in one line without any proper example to support his blatant claim.

    Wow That was pretty good answer But can you help me on how to get a targeted keyword?


    How do I get links for a certain keyword? I have tried alot of senarios. I have keyword stuffed my page( didn't work). I have used keyword sparingly (didn't work) I have used not alot but often didn't work. So for example if I want to rank high for golf clubs. When I ask for recipricoal links do I put the terms golf clubs in the title and description alot? Or heres another one, sometimes when I write arcticles i hid my link behind like the keyword golf clubs. Does this work? I just don't understand How to rank high for a certain keyword. Man if you could explain this to me I will give you a free for life pass on my auction website i'm building.

    If you target a chunk of your link developments to just "book" - you likely won't rank for book nor even if you do would those ranks be overly beneficial - BUT:

    Ranks are based on a collection of variables [different link anchors being one] where [examples]

    If you wanted to rank for "Music Book," "Cook Book," and "Baby Book" - if you got a few links for each and all got ranks like: #11, #16, #12, respectfully...

    By getting a few links that were just "BOOK" allows unique values of Music, Cook, and Baby to rank easier so you can gain higher ranks for all 3 at say #7, #10, #8 respectfully.

    So the "targeting" of single word terms is more often beneficial to help many longer phrases rank rather than the single word term ranking itself.

    This is not concern with single phrase keyword. You have to think about your target area, products & keyword. I want to give you one best example for this.

    Just imagine:

    I am website owner of tiki torches. These torches are useful to decor home & outdoor area. So, I can not target "torches" to gather my customer. You can get more idea with Google image search. What is difference between "torches" & "tiki torches".

    Now Suppose:

    My site will on 1st position with "torches" keywords & give me bunch of hits. But, I am not able to sell any single products. Because visitors come with "torches" keywords have different mind concept. They may be buyer of electric torches or outdoor torches or solar torches or researcher on torches.

    Now Get It Done:

    If my site will top on "tiki torches" so, I will get perfect & targeted visitors towards my website. It will help me to decrease my site bounce rate & increase conversion.

    I hope you can understand about core concept behind keyword selection.

    So, single phrase or more : There is no concern . But , What is your target area ? Think about it & get it done !! Best of luck !!
