  • Paul Thompson: No, anchor text is in the href code, not the link URL itself.
  • Dawn Anderson: And bear in mind if you use Google`s short links they are going away. I know you mention Bitly but just in case you decided to use goo.gl shortlinks
  • Maria Patterson: Hi Dawn Anderson by "going away" do you mean discontinuing?
  • Maria Patterson: Just googled and saw they are discontinuing. Thanks for the heads up as I have one client that uses them
  • Dawn Anderson: Maria Patterson Yes. They are sunsetting that facility.
