    Secondary Keyword 10%
    Primary Keyword variants 10%
    URL 10%

    Ok. I'd prefer to see generic a little higher myself. (33% maybe? ) but that looks very respectable really. If I saw a website with that background I would not expect to see an issue with anchor text variation.

    If you wanted to pump up generic, where would you take it from?

    You might be bit over complicating matter.

    I have 30% of exact match + variations - e.g. dog poop + smelly dog poop... :D

    then about 30% goes just URL as an anchor

    rest is generic "click here's"

    Might ease your mind a bit :)

    Simplest with this set up would be 1% off all the others.

    Overall though, it looks pretty good. How many variations are there within each one of them.
    How many secondary keywords, how many variations of brand etc? That's also an issue (not a massive one) YOu can go too far both ways with this. Over op one way, and dilute your message too much the other.

    Just go for this ratio, it's enough!

    Primary Keyword anchors - 30%
    Secondary LSI Keyword anchors - 30%
    Brand Name anchors- 20%
    URL as anchor-10%
    Click here type anchors- 10%

    This will helps your anchor text diversity and improve the rankings of your primary keywords.

    There is no exact percentage of diversity. It should be done by understanding. Also use phrases with keywords in it as you anchor text which will help you diversify and look your link building more natural.
