    Question Backlink text

    Let's say for example that I'm ranked #7 for a term such as "how to dance". However, I'm only on page 3 for the term "dance". If I keep optimizing my backlinks for "dance" rather than "how to dance", will my rank for "how to dance" still go up since my PR will be going up?

    Yup, PR is a factor in the algo. Won't make much difference though, I don't think.

    I think, not an seo though, it should be the other way around, if you optimize for :how to dance" your keyword "dance" can also go up, but why not optimize on both?

    You would go up anyway, if you get quality backlinks...but take care :
    You will get upper for "how to dance" if you use anchor "how to dance" , and not so up if you use "free php scripts" as a anchor.. but even if you use crazy nonsense anchor text, you will get up
