    ... my main keywords that I was ranking for have the following backlinks anchor %

    Main KW1: 10%
    MAIN KW2: 8%
    MAIN KW3: 9%

    According to ahrefs.com

    How could this be?

    Only thing I can think of is that I bought links to Private Blog Network from bobby @ stealthrankz a few weeks back and he has since informed me that the network is now gone...

    Any help?

    PS - I think I got hit by EMD update also, keyword for this dropped from #2 to #11 but its not a big problem as searches for this one are nothing compared to MAIN KW 1&2 above...

    So are you saying that your keyword percentages are too low or too high?

    If it makes you feel any better I've got a lot of EMDs and without doing anything I'm seeing some bounce back from a hard Penguin slap without doing anything but adding fresh content. I've added long, 600+ word content without doing ANYTHING else. Trying to build them back slowly but surely. Good luck getting out from under the BS!

    Hint: Penguin is not only about anchor text, percentages, natural link profiles, etc

    People who say otherwise... well...

    See, I would disagree. 27% of your anchor text consists of 3 keywords. In my opinion it's very unnatural.
