Adult Related Anchor Text

Hi all,

Setting up a site on Men's Health & one of the categories is Sexual Health. One of my long tail keywords I want to use for this category contains the word `porn' in it.

Now my site is about men's health & won't have any adult related content or images on it, but...

Question:

Is it going to be difficult to build up backlinks to that category using a keyword that has the word `porn' in it?

Article submissions, directories, profiles etc. Is it going to be harder to get them approved if the anchor text contains the word `porn'?

It'll be interesting to hear from any members that have set up adult themed sites, is the SEO approach the same?

Thanks for any help.

Your keywords and anchor text should be descriptive of your page's content. Search engines want to provide highly relevant results so if you have the word 'porn' in your keywords and anchor text, then the linked text should be relevant to the landing page. Otherwise, you'll lose the chance for that page to rank well for that keyword.

What's going to prove a little difficult is finding sites that will allow backlinks to porn-related content. Even if the page you will be linking back to does not contain porn per se, a lot of website owners are reluctant to allow such links.

Similar to the above; you will need to find those that will allow the word on anchor text.

Although I do not have sites with adult-only content on them, I can say that the SEO approach would still be the same. It's just a matter of building backlinks through resources that allow such content to be posted or linked to. Once you have found sites that allow those, you should be fine.

I hope that helps :)
