Here is how I set up my Tier 2 projects.
Duplicate the tier 1 project, click Edit and Clear the URLs, then check the box "Use Verified URLs of ...", then fill every keywords/anchor texts, blog comments etc... as usual. All the options are the same as Tier 1 project except PR filter.
But I don't know why many many verified results of the Tier 2 project have [empty] anchor text.
Please tell me what I'm doing wrong.
