    Hi Friends,

    I'm fairly new to IM and have spent the past few months mainly learning things I need to know for the future including SEO.

    I understand that you need to vary your anchor text and not just have a few keywords or Google will penalize you but do they still take into account the anchor text in no-follow links or am I safe to just use whatever when I am creating a no-follow link?

    Thanks

    James

    All hyperlinked text are counted in your anchor text profile because it is the text itself that carry your anchor profile and not the link inside it.

    So it is strongly advised to use proper anchor text whether the link is nofollow or not.
