    So i created a lof of links but the rankings for my keyword i am trying to rank for is not good.
    And then i noticed that in my linkprofile the anchors % for my keyword i am trying to rank is only 4%.
    How can i increase the %, do i just create more links or is it even worth doing it when the rest of the backlink profile is spammed with huge amount of links, in other words i need to spam my keyword to increase its % in the backlink profile.

    so is it worth doing it? or i am better off buying a new domain and start over.

    Depends On Which SEO Tool You use . Usually I keep My Main Keywords between 20-30%

    For your anchortext, make sure to do lots of variations (something like 20% main keyword, 50% domain (raw urls and variations), 20% brand, 10% generic like click here, visit site etc). It's about maintaining the ratios in order to avoid overoptimization penalties.

    To increase your % just build more links with that anchor text.

    I think anything above 6% is good and my limit is 10%.

    This is the % that I used for my Adsense keywords. And it works like a charm.

    5% Generic
    15% Broad Match
    10% Exact Match
    15% Phrase Match
    15% URL
    15% Brand+Keyword
    25% Brand

    LMAO...You're just asking for a beatdown. Dude, that strategy died like 7 years ago! LOL...There is no "exact" percentage that works "all the time" but I guarantee you that 100% will get you slapped hard. Hilarious!

    I guess it's all about diversity in your anchor texts. Like someone said before, there is no percentage that works.
