    How much can we optimize and camouflage to look less aggressive with keywords?

    Using ahrefs, any certain percentages?
    Anchor phrases
    Anchor terms

    I seem to have peppered in with visit here, visit website, read more, my website, no text, website, etc.... 7%

    Ones with variants of the business name and or website address account for 9%

    I also have the more "commercial" ones for an electrician like led lighting, etc....

    You still have to use zips, suburbs names in order to gain something. Landing pages are important to have a very detailed content about the area. So start from there, the off page you will figure it out.

    Employ schema, make sure the address of where you want to rank is present on the page, and the content and optimization is on point. You really don't need to be too aggressive, especially when it comes to your anchor text. There isn't a magical number for anchor text distribution, but I wouldn't want mine to be any higher than low single digits, and the rest all brand, raw url and generic.

    As for your landers, write local landing pages that are filled with resourceful information in addition to your sales copy. This will make them a lot easier to write, especially if you are writing about the same thing over and over and over again. Your copywriters will thank you, and in my experience, your traffic will reward you.

    I do have a smattering of town name plus electrician or commercial electrician. I just heard there was penalties for anything past your business name or website adddress above x percentile.
