    Question: Which of these backlink scenarios are more powerful?

    Backlink #1:
    Contextual backlink in a small sentence, w/ branded anchor.

    Backlink #2:
    image backlink with branded alt tag

    Which is more powerful?

    reason: I got a photographer expired domain. and i want to recreate it with a section called "our work" then have 2-3 backlinks to my money sites. im trying to figure out if i should use method 1 or 2 to link to my money sites.

    Contextual backlinks are always the most powerful in SEO, because they come naturally in the body of a post/article.

    Contextual backlinks
    There are two reasons behind that:
    1 - They looks more natural to the Spider.
    2 - They helps you rank fast in google.

    Like others I also advice you to go for option 1 as it is the method for link building with prime Importance
    Second Option is good for diverting traffic from one page to another but if you want to come in Google first page then it is wise to rely on Contexttual link building.

    Contextual backlinks means the link which is included in the content. Suppose you have an awesome blog. In your blog, you create a new post and make an internal or external backlink with an anchor text called contextual backlink. The backlink from any website slide bar, menu, submenu, footer or other comment option is not contextual backlink.

    Contextual backlinks are more powerful for the SEO and help your websites to rank higher in the SERP results, no matter what the anchor texts are either branded or services based.

    Contextual Backlink.
    Text is better than images for SEO, pagespeed, mobile, your webserver and accessibility.

    -> When it comes to hyperlinks, text is the undisputed king. Google’s Webmaster Guidelines state:“Try to use text instead of images to display important names, content, or links. If you must use images for textual content, use the alt attribute to include a few words of descriptive text.” The reason for this is simple: search engine web crawlers can’t analyse images in the same way a human can. So they can’t determine whether the image and link are an appropriate match.In short, text links are weighted higher than image links by search engines, so where you have the choice you should always opt for a text link.

    I think Contextual back-link is better than image links.
