We cannot guarantee that all requests will be implemented.

    When you want to make the most of your link popularity by making your links target relevant keywords.


Anchor text is the text that displays when one website links to another. Having relevant keywords in the anchor text boosts SEO as search engines assume that the hyperlink is related to the terms in the anchor text. It is important that your website uses such SEO tactics as this will increase your rankings in search engines results and so increase the likelihood of your target audience coming across your site.

We will optimise the anchor text of existing backlinks pointing to your website by making the link text “keyword-rich”, maximising their SEO value and impacting on your ranking. We will identify your current links, evaluate their current link text (anchor text) and contact the relevant webmasters with the aim of persuading them to change the anchor text to include your target keywords.

Quality process

The process begins by completing a briefing questionnaire with your account manager to clarify objectives. This briefing will be visible to all the team members involved with delivering the service and is the foundation for all our quality checks. We will also need to know what you want the new anchor text to be, as well as the page that you want the anchor text to lead to. Providing us with an official email address and full access to its inbox might increase the success rate of this service.

A native speaker, under the supervision of a link building strategist who will coordinate the project, will create a list of websites and links for optimisation. The native speaker will then approach these websites' webmasters and ask them to change their anchor text to your requested keywords.

We will send you an Excel file with websites we approached and the approach outcomes.
