    Hi All,This is how iam building my links these days, what do you think is this ok?

    40% links using keyword as anchor link.
    40% links using URL as anchor link
    20% links using "click here", "read more" etc as anchor link

    All advice is more then welcom.

    I will recommend and tested in my own site and seen great result

    Main keyword - 20% (MUST)
    LSI Keywords - 30%
    Generic Keyword - 30%
    Branded Keyword - 20%

    However you can add naked url by adjusting with Branded Keywords like 10-10%

    You can get away with higher % of exact keyword on brand domain

    I lately came across a very interesting research, the results of which were published on Powered by Search: 7 Types of Anchor Text You Can Use to Avoid a Google Flag. The image credit goes there too :smileeek:

    OP take in consideration what ok888 said but, to be on the safe side the best answer lies in the competitor's analysis. Analyze your top 10 competitors on the first page for their kw density.

    You can add up to 10% more on the main kw than the average of your competitors.

    Hope I made sense :)

    ok888 is right.

    If you're doing SEO for an EMD the overuse of main keyword is very dangerous. It's easy to receive over optimization penalty. That's the main reason why I do not use Exact Match Domains anymore.

    I really don't buy into these % stats.
