URLwire's Anchor Text Policy
URLwire was live on the web for four years before Google existed, and for many years I included anchor text written by me that most aptly described the content of the site I was linking to. Since I cannot be certain how Google will treat such links, back in January of 2014 I started nofollowing links by default, and I now only use company name, site name, or site URL as the anchor text.
The value of URLwire is not about the anchor text or dofollow anyway. The value of URLwire is creating awareness of your content within the community of people who can then help your content become better known, earning links and publicity along the way.
URLwire is also indexed and included in Google News. Here's a search showing this.
