When a visitor attends the site he should be glued by the content and not distracted, have related videos, pictures and related high quality information.

When you are building a link, contained within the original content, then it should be to a related topic to seem natural. This way Google will not treat it as spam. Even today, it is relevant to have your content with good SEO. Panda and the later SEO has forced the website owner to rethink his ways and creating quality content which matches the SEO, then you will not face any problem with your ranking.

  3. Avoid exact-match anchor text links: This has been advised by the Google forums time and again, as the same link leading to the home page for more than 60% have seen a severe drop in rankings. It is your prerogative as a writer to offer content that offers value to the visitor. Write what you would like to read, from a SEO perspective it will only help increase PR. It is strongly recommended by the experts that varying the anchor text with your links to include the business or domain name. You should also include a number of long-tail variations of the keywords.
