Regarding the way SER inserts links into the content
edited April 2014 in Feature Requests
As far as I can tell, currently SER tries to find words from the anchor text list in the article, that I'm submitting and then makes them links within the article. Which is a great way to do it. However, it seems to me that SER decides which particular word to make anchor text before actually taking a look at the current version of the article. So my article could have a lot of the anchor texts in it, but if it doesn't have the one, that SER wants to insert a link for, SER adds new content to my article, which looks quite unnatural.
So, first of all, am I correct about the way I think SER works?
If so, then isn't it better if SER just takes a look at the current version of an article and then decide which of the available anchor texts to actually make a link?
No that will all slow down things too much. Whats wrong in using %anchor_text% macro in the article. This will always use the right place to make a link and still make the article readable.
If I first load all articles and choose what anchor matches best, it will waste a lot time for this and also memory.
And if that sounds too much as well, I'm happy to just be able to set SER to skip a certain anchor text if it's not found in one of the articles (without loading the others). Again, as an optional feature.
Any other option will produce content, which looks unnatural (at least according to the "Test" preview), or at the very least - it will make it obvious that this link is a deliberate result of linkbuilding efforts. I would like to avoid both of those scenarios, if possible. Or is that again, just a limitation of the "test" feature?
Seeing that the "no link" option still inserts a link whereever possible, doesn't it make sense for it to try to find the anchor text in the article as well?
hmm yes the "no link" setting will add a link if there is no link placed by you in the article already. Why? Because the program needs something to verify with. However why not using "Just a link at a random location" as option? It will just add a link with anchor and of course only if it does not find the anchor before.
And if you are sure that the anchor is in one spined version, it will produce all natural looking articles.
