Anchor text coming up with URL?

edited April 2013 in Need Help
Hi there, does anyone know why my top anchor texts are popping up with the URL infront?

For example, if I check my anchor texts in ahrefs, then it comes up like so:

"Anchor Text -"

Where it should just come up like so:

"Anchor Text"

hmmm... anyone experienced the same / resolved this issue?


  • Disable trackback engines
  • gotcha, cheers @cherub
  • it's only trackback format2 which does this !

    @sven - can you add to the FAQ.

    Yea maybe I should. I don't know why this is an issue anyway...there are other engines that create anchor texts like "Homepage for XYZ" or some stuff with Chinese characters...noone seems to care about that.

    Sorry to bump this thread -- I am having the same issue. How can I disable GSA SER from using a backlink that has an anchor text which is a URL? 

    Mainly because I am using %anchor_text% in my spintax file, and it's throwing full URL's all over my articles and forum posts.  

    It's not just trackback 2.    I am getting this with PunBB and one of the Exploits as well.

    I will try disabling anything that is generating these, but it would be nice if there was a feature "Verified Links Must Have Qualifying Anchor Text" --- this would be hot.

    Thanks :)
