    I have this site where i have been outranked by a competitor on my main keyword - The site has alot of links from the same c-class and the anchor ratio is about 40 % on then keyword, which is alot i my opinion. it´s a norwegian site ;)

    If it where an english site targeting a keyword, there would be a big risk in having such high exact keyword anchors..

    Could there be a difference in the algo, for smaller languages ?

    Also i am seeing a lot of shifting around i Serps, so something else could be in the making..

    Google is certanly making alot of changes i Adwords and organic results :)

    What are your thougts on this ?

    Best

    Tommy

    Everything eventually trickles down to all the different Google language algos and I too recently saw a huge drop on one of my affiliate sites out of the blue like this
    where I was ranking #2 for big keywords for years and it dropped to page 5 for no reason. I'd dilute the link profile and add in more branded and naked urls and see
    what happens.

    Yeah - Sometimes i does´t make sense :)
    My anchor % on the keyword is 18% which is quite high - but 40 i alot :p

    I and a friend joked about that it is a trick google is doing where they make people build a lot of links to there sites with exact keywords, and then let the penguin loose...:D

    Do you think is´s okay to have such high anchor text for a keyword ? in this region - and if so, there stil must be a risk of getting hit by the penguin

    An English site with tons of Norwegian anchors? No... that doesn't sound very natural unless there are special circumstances here with the topic/niche.

    it is of course a norwegian site :) what i am thinking is, that it could be anolder or not so updated algo running in this region.. there is only around 5 mil people in the country and not so many sites as in english.. I have some english sites, and i would never have this high anchor cloud in these sites.. But in this language it seems that a high anchor cloud gets you to the top at the moment :)
