    Say on an ecommerce site you can get 6 links a month from authority sites how would you do the anchors?

    Mix of partials and exacts, randoms, branded, etc.?

    Thanks

    Depends on the niche. Look at the competitors anchor ratios. Go from there. Google understands context, so as long as your on page is good, you're golden..or not?

    I would go do:
    4 branded
    1 generic
    1 partial

    No exact match. If they are authority, that would be enough to get you ranking if it is a low-med competition.

    Don't forget to point them to the right pages too. Forgot to mention that.

    I have quite a few ecom clients. I'll give you some advice via PM if you need it:)

    It depends on your current ancor ratio.

    We've done some test that show exact match with higher metric sites, generally work. You dilute the ratios with lower end (foundation, not shit). That's why we use lots of generic and brand with the lower end sites. Leave the exact match anchors for the most relevant authority links. Tends to work magic.

    Thanks. One thing I noticed is a lot of my competitors have high branded ratios. Right now I have higher branded ratios than other keywords but not by too much. I have a feeling going big on branded might help a bit. I'll also pm you jstover77.

    There's also a huge difference between competing against a site that started in 2013 and a site that's been around since 1998. If a site you're competing against has been around since 1998, and you just started...pump the breaks. I'm pretty sure, you're not beating him. Google puts a huge precedent on age now. Perspective.

    Exactly what I would do. Take advantage of that juice and hit your site with a few exact match keywords. Take links that aren't quite as strong, then you can worry about partial, generic, etc. I'd still throw in some branding ones though. I'd probably 3 branded and 3 my top three keywords. Maybe one to an inner page.

    Some keywords are around 5% so I was thinking of diluting it a bit more.

    branded variation of url, site name, broad niche keyword, lately google is tracking down, also in anchors made of long tails keywords, also change the capitalization of each anchor, never exactly repeat, especially when you dont have many backlinks, also...

    you probably don't get penalized if you have 20% exact keyord for an anchor if you have 10 links, that would be 2, but if you have 1000 links, would be high unlikely that you would have 200 links with the same exact keyword in it, so more links you have and more you have to use less and less exact anchor keyords

    i would use 2 branded, 2 generic, 1 exact and 1 partial match. if yours is a new site, i would point all of them to the home page, and a long the way, i would point the links to the page which are closest to the first page (with good search volume of course) as i want them to rank and get traffic as soon as possible.

    one thing you should keep in mind, age really make a difference, wheter the age of your site also the age of your backlinks. be patient and keep building those links.

    What he said. If it's a true authority link, you want more branded links. G has gotten a bit smarter. Nowadays G looks at your on-page to determine what to rank you for, they then look at your off-page to determine if you are credibile and actually worth getting ranked.
