    Well I know the fact that Google is trying to eliminate anchor text linking as their primary factor in ranking. Rand discusses his theory that co-citation is one of the newest way of building brand. Not link building. But brand mentioning.

    No, not keywords and without link. Co citation is like what Rand said, mentioning your brand even without link back to the domain. They might give you a link but not deep links. Google has gone really smart over the past years and they might have thought about this a really really long time now although we just have a feel of that effect just now.

    It is some soft of improvement to index surrounding text.

    Agree over the past 18 months, lot of webmaster suffer on algorithm change, the robots is getting close with human judgement.

    If it will die, what's the use of anchor texts?
    I know it is used to rank higher on your desired keywords, but what will replace it? How can we rank on these keywords if we won't use anchor texts?
