    Hey Guys,

    My website was indexed in October and so far Ahrefs.com has found 16 backlinks. 15 of them do follow and 1 no follow.

    These days it's important to not have too much of the same anchor text. So when checking to see how my anchor text % would I be right in that I should be going by the top graph? According to this it means I have over 60% of the same anchor text for my main keyword? It is exact match too btw. The anchor is the exact keyword I am targeting. The top bar in the first graph is my main keyword. If so, what would be the best way to lower this %? Should I be trying to get rid of some of those links or should I go and build more links with more general and different anchor text?

    My site was in the first few pages for my main keywords but now dropped off a few weeks ago and I think it may be because of this. Any help appreciates.

    Hi,

    you have to start buliding Links like -> nice site about "your niche" or " complete generic.
    Google is smart enough to know what is your site about if you have a well onpage optimization.
    You don't have to remove links or did you get a hit in your rankings?

    Cya

    I don't have a penalty or messages in Google Webmaster Tools, but after my keywords started ranking they were at around #80 for a bit with hardly any links and then they dissapeared and didn't come back.

    I submitted my site to a directory, and I have about 10 links from that 1 directory showing up in Ahrefs.com for some reason and they use my exact keyword as the anchor text.
