  15. 15. These links tell the search engines what they should expect when they follow them.<br />
  16. 16. They basically are saying “Go here for more information about xyz.”<br />
  17. 17. The competition that you might have likely has little or no knowledge of how SEO works.<br />
  18. 18. It is extremely important that these links include your targeted keyword phrase for the page that is beinglinked too!<br />
  19. 19. Links that include your targeted phrase are called anchor text links.<br />

  29. 29. Once you know what your competition has done you can then build a winning game plan.<br />
  30. 30. This is why I say that SEO is a game because it is a competition.<br />
  31. 31. Except in this game it is never over. You must actively work your game plan to maintain your rankings.<br />
