Do you use Web 2.0 to rank your website?

When you create Web 2.0, do you add an anchor text with your KW that you're trying to rank for or do you send them directly to your website by saying "Click Here" or visit "site url"

Reason I'm asking is because I've heard that ranking for your exact KW via anchor text using Web 2.0 is not a good idea! Would love to hear how your thoughts! Thanks!

Web 2.0 sites can still be a good source for backlinks but you will need to do things differently. You need to practice building backinks in moderation and of course, no spamming. This is a good strategy for web 2.0 sites.

web 2.0 sites are free blogging platforms which allow webmasters to insert our webpage links over there by writing blogs in the form of content, text, image, and videos and it is a grey hat technique and still helps to rank our webpage

It won't be considered gray hat if you prioritize content over SEO. You can still use web 2.0 sites to promote your website or business but using quality content and not for SEO purposes only.

I respectfully disagree. Web 2.0 sites dont add much value these days. This is an outdated strategy from a link building perspective. It may be good to get traffic, but you won't get much link equity. Google is too smart, and will essentially devalue these types of links. Link building is really about getting links that are not easily created by you (they are added by other webmasters).

Web 2.0 allows the user to interact & share information online. You can create an account or profile, comment & interact. These activities are important as it gives you the ability to publish your content & create backlinks on it. Also, it generates its own traffic.
