I remember reading an article that advised against using keyword rich anchor internal text links to your home page.

Should you only use "Home" as an internal anchor text link when you link from internal pages to your home page, or could you also use keyword rich anchor text?

Like for example "Investment Consultant" if your home page is your online business card so to speak.

Your main navigation menu would still have your home page labeled as "Home" to maintain a regular navigation experience.

What are your thoughts?

As a catch-all, I have never had nor perceived a problem with text links that contain relevant and appropriate words with reference to the page that the links point to. Obviously this is subject to the test of reasonableness usually evident by reading to yourself the text containing the link. If it sounds inappropriate, it probably is.

i posted this on another thread the other day but it applies to your question as well.

there are literally thousands of "Boston SEO" footer links on every page of this forum that point to the high rankings home page.

highrankings.com ranks #4 for "Boston SEO."

hope this helps.

Good point Ken! smile.gif

I think it wouldn't be any problem then to use anchor text links from inner pages to my home page.
These will be anchor links containing variations of anchor text for which I would like my home page to rank for.
