Internal Anchor Text Word Cloud

Imagine a website with an index of pages names like this > “PAGE1 – PAGE2 – PAGE3”. That doesn’t tell the visitor anything and it certainly doesn’t tell a search engine what’s going on here. Every website should have an easy to follow MENU. The words used in the MENU should be relevant to the content being served at the destination pages. Likewise, any LINKS within the CONTENT that direct visitors to other pages in the SAME website should be viewed as little signposts that can be used by the SearchBOTS to understand what your website is all about. The words used to link from page A to page B should be informative and relevant

Crawl your website like a GoogleBOT

Do you really know how your website has been constructed and what “anchor text” is used to link from Page A to Page B and from Page B and A to the homepage? The “Internal Anchor Text – WORD CLOUD” illustrates in a simple word density graphic how GoogleBOT views a website with regard to internal anchor text. Below is an example from one of my own – No1 Ranking Pages

Examples of Anchor Text Word Clouds

The example above is an anchor text word cloud from my own website. This page deals with the sale of Seiko Samurai diver’s watches. I have over 2,000 internal links to this page (inluding menus). I’m reasonably happy with the density of anchor text to this page – although I will try to add some more “SALES” related anchors to increase the emphasis on “watches for sale”. Just doing this simple exercise and selecting a page at random I have given myself a ToDo task ?

The example below is from my PRIMARY (parent) Seiko Dive Watches page. I’m very happy with the anchor text density cloud here. I don’t want this page to compete with a SPECIFIC model – this is just the general cover all “Seiko Divers Watches”.
