    Say your targeting the keyword 'maple syrup' and you have a small percentage of backings with that and similar keywords.

    In blog posts on your site about the topic do you also link back using the keyword? Do you think this puts at risk for penguin or if it's a small percentage of your inner linking not likely?

    Thanks

    Do you mean inner site links? If that is the case, you can use it at one or two places contextually. There is not risk if you do not overdo it.

    Change up the inner links. Use the an exact match on a page you have some link juice flowing to. Then on the other pages just link to it naturally when called upon.

    I generally use the anchor and insert the inner page link with all type of diversity,so it is good for me imo.

    Yes, you can use the main keyword for anchor text in your blog. But use for once or two do not make too many anchor text which will look life spam. Depending on length of blog content you should use for one or two main keywords for anchor text.

    Usually you mix it a little at some posts you are putting your keywords while on others you use the naked url.

    its of no harm being conttextual. keep the frequency of Exact keyword (anchor phrase) low to stay safe. Don't over do.

    Yes, I am using keywords in anchor text. First I will hyperlink the text and inserting title tag inside the anchor tag.

    It is fine if you do this. Just as long as you are not being seen as spamming.
