    Backlink text

    Hi - for my design site - I have been using "Website Design" as much as possible for my backlink text - is this a wise idea as I think the competition is huge?

    If no - what would be good backlink text to use?

    I would say maybe add your location, because I would think people would generally look for local companies?

    And I would say it is definitely worth finding something more focussed than just "Website Design" - as you say, this is going to be a very tough keyword to rank for.

    DEFINITELY add your location, or the nearest large city.
    Specifically for your case, I would target "Web Design Australia".
    A couple associates of mine receive great leads from location web design searches.

    Its often better to get a GREAT ranking on a lower searched for term, than fighting to get an average ranking on a highly popular search term, so yep I would put in the city.

    Thanks for the input - I thought I had been barking up the wrong tree but glad I realised early

    another good thing to do is specify. I did 'freelance website design' and got #1 on google with it when I was doing work for a friend. I concur with the thought of putting your big city in the backlink text

    Do some research before you choose keywords..
    Most countries spell "webdesign" but the US and probably the UK as well spell "web design".

    Thanks peach - I was just thinking about that the other day.

    Google trends is awesome - I only glanced over it the other day and never knew you could do comparisons - Cool
