www.textlinkbrokers.com - more relevant is better than high PR. The same country does not seem to make a lot of difference. On the page that links to you two main factors count - link anchor text, and also the page title of that page.

New Google matching algorithm

In case you weren't aware, Google is now matching more on a broad basis for keywords. For example, previously "affiliate" and "affiliates" were two separate words on Google, but now it is treating them as the same.

Take it a step further and try and paint a picture in the reader's mind by using synonyms and a good thesaurus. Google.com and A...

Have you considered buying whatever your product is that you're promoting (if you can get away with a small purchase)? That's often a sure fire way of conifirming tracking's working.
