    let's say you have 50 backlink would each one be a little different from one another, or do you focus more (let's say %10) on the main KW or website

    ^^ You should target like 30% of your main kw, 40% of generic terms, 30% of naked urls links.

    Saving in a notepad. Most of the people would not give a damn, but this is the important area of your overall link building process.

    Anchor variation, and lots of it is key moving forward these days. Nothing screams IM site gaming rank through link building more than a really narrow anchow spread, or worse just 2 -3 keywords for all anchors... and then having those reflected in your onPage. Nice info here.

    Great advise HH, very useful. Best to keep exact keyword match low as well - 20-30% max.
