Logically, no one searches for Adobe Acrobat Reader by entering here into Google. However, after reading this blog, they just might since it’s a lot faster to type here than Adobe Acrobat Reader. 🙂 The lesson here is to label your links correctly. If your web site offers criminal lawyer resources, then label the link as such instead of telling people to click here for criminal lawyer resources. It’ll take a lot of Google Juice to unseat Adobe Acrobat Reader for the #1 click here spot.
