Warning: You’re linking to another page with the focus keyword

Last update: 23 June, 2016

The warning:

You're linking to another page with the focus keyword you want this page to rank for. Consider changing that if you truly want this page to rank.

Cause

Your content contains a link that includes the focus keyword. The example below would show this warning if my chosen focus keyword was Anchor, Anchor Text or Text.

<a href="http://www.example.com">Anchor Text</a>

Solution

Modify the link so it does not contain the focus keyword. If changing the link is not possible, the warning can be ignored as you should not be tempted to get all green bullets.
