    I have been gone from SEO/IM for a while been trying to catch up on everything and one of my big questions right now is anchor text ratios for tier 1. People have been saying getting tier 1 ratios right is a must in current SEO state but I have seen a few different recommendations. One guy even said you should only have 1% of tier 1s with exact match anchor text, is this true? Also I have seen people saying that you should only use your exact match keyword anchors on the highest of powered of your tier 1s which is why a lot of people use PBN links for this as part of their tier 1 is that true ?

    So lets say I create 50 web2.0 tier 1s should I just have maybe 1 (or none at all) of those with the keyword I'm going for ? and the rest be naked urls/LSI/generic/ect. And then I have lets say 10 PBN anchors with my exact match keyword?

    Thanks

    The best anchor text ratio is the anchor text ratio that your strongest competitor has.

    10% main keyword variations
    60% naked URL variations
    30% everything else

    majority of websites with natural backlink profiles have most of their anchor texts as naked URLs

    Seems to be some variation to what people think, but the constant would be to have a large portion of naked urls.
