    Hi Guys,

    I've just seen one of my client's (who assigned me his site work just 4 days ago) site anchor text ratio & I found 63% is no anchor text. rest 37% is from anchor text,brand,URLs.

    How can I balance it.

    By making comments links with URLs,brand & genaric anchor texts.

    By doing PR distribution,so I will get brand and URL links.

    Thanks!

    Why no anchor text? Image links? The great majority of your links should be text links for an average site, unless you host images or something.

    Your link profile describes the collection of all hyperlinks pointing to your website. Links are still powerful currency in the world of search and, with the Penguin update, Google became much smarter at detecting attempts to game the system. In short, if you are building a ton of links using the same few target keywords as the anchor text, Google will probably penalize you.


    What kind of profile does Google consider natural? It's impossible to know exactly, but you should strive for an even distribution of links with four different kinds of anchor text:

    [h=2]1. Your naked site URL[/h]Naked site URLs include different variations of your URL, such as "your-company.com" and "http://www.your-company.com." You should aim for roughly 22% of this type of link.

    [h=2]2. Your brand name[/h]In order to look natural, around 26% of your total links should be with your brand name/company name (i.e. "XYZ Company"). Brand name links should outnumber target keyword links.

    [h=2]3. Target keywords[/h]Target keywords are specific keywords that you are trying to rank for in search engines. For example, if you sell beach towels in Florida, you may wish to target "florida beach towels." Most websites with over 50% of their links containing target keywords were penalized by Penguin (http://www.seomoz.org/ugc/google-penguin-antispam-algorithm-testing-and-analyzing) . On the flip side, websites with around 23% target keyword links seemed to benefit in rankings with Penguin update.

    [h=2]4. Non-descriptive anchors[/h]Non-descriptive anchors include "click here", "here", and "visit this site." Approximately 29% of your links should be non-descriptive.

    Here's the guiding principle: make sure your link profile looks as natural as possible. Do ordinary people linking to your site always use your ideal keywords? Of course not! This is why it is very important to have plenty of "non-ideal" links in your overall link profile."

    This is not my text, i just shared a piece of content that i received in my mail, from a service that i'm subscribed to.

    Balance out your anchor text by using web 2.0, blog comments, guest posts.
