    does the anchor text have to have the keyword for what i am ranking?

    does the whole text have to have the keyword also or only the anchor text matters?

    Whole text. I wouldn't use the keyword for most of my anchors. Try to keep exact match below 5%, partial match below 20%. Rest should be naked, branded & generic
