    How many different anchor texts should I use for my backlinks to stay safe? Let's say I'm targetting just 2 keywords.

    9 to 1 :) mostly other terms/generics some naked. Some brand, some LSI, very few main KW. I like 10% main and don't often use the same exact term twice I prefer embedding the main KW in phrases.

    Unless you churn and burn.

    Just dont repeat anchors for main kw that will be main rule, you can repeat it few times but be carefull of over optimization.

    The thread was back in 2013 so I think the EM anchor needs to be lower now.

    No, I'm not spinning my content.

    Thank you all for your advice.
