    I have seen in my own experience, being penalized from as little as a 1.5% density with a few internal exacts almost immediately.

    Though I am noticing cases where a lot of sites with up to 80% exacts in google are ranking for 7 months to a year, primarily with shit links. Were talking like 300 exact links, not just a couple here.

    What is the reason for these not getting tripped by the anchor algo and dying within a few weeks? Or what could the reason be?

    You mean external links with exact match anchor text?

    Yea, I mean a backlink profile of up to 80% exacts from say 500 total links.

    I guess it depends on many factors.
    if you have 2 links, and 1 is exact match you won't get penalised for anchor spam will you?
    would be better to analise with some examples but probably not wise to post links.

    Exactly, I agree with David completely. There are a lot more factors than just the backlinks on which the rankings depend on. For example, lets say if you try doing the same thing again on a different website, you may not see the exact same results even if you build the exact same links which has been proven in the past. And even if you build two different websites on the exact same niche and do everything exactly the same, their rankings would still differ because of the different in the domain name, content and a lot more other things.

    Exactly. There's so many elements to it that I don't think it's worth trying to analyse the anomalies.

    if you know that most of the time, you can rank safely with say 4-7% direct anchor, then who cares if there's 1 in 1000 sites that ranks with 80%?

    No you wouldn't. But that's because there are only 2 links. I have eliminated that factor by telling you there is 500 total links with 80% density.

    Yes I agree. However, domain name, theme variances, and content would not make a dent in an 80% anchor density. The site also has a 5% page density.

    Pushing anchors to the max always worked well. Be it 2004 or 2014 :)

    500 links is nothing. How many unique domains? What type of links, what type of pages linking? I don't think that volume is anywhere near enough to make good assumptions.

    also what's the competition like for the ranking term?
