    Is there any quick way? If building more links to brand keywords, citation, random linking like visit homepage would help? If yes, what can be approximate ratio of these?

    You might also try contacting the webmasters to remove the links, or if it's negative SEO you can disavow the links besides what you said.

    I dont know what exactly you mean by negative seo. But i can definitely tell you that it was a new website & due to lack of knowledge we aggressively built lot of contextual links targeting just one keyword & forced Indexing which triggered anchor text penalty.

    If you don't control the links, only thing you can do is either disavow them or request them be taken down.

    Otherwise you'll need to build plenty of quality links to offset the malicious ones.

    We do have control on 90% of the them. So what would be your advice?
    Should we completely remove or replace them with the brand anchor text to increase the over authority & balancing.

    You can remove the current links on the ones you control, keep the current content then add more content with the new branded anchor. Don't do them all at once, drop them out over a couple of months if you wish to be cautious. On some I would remove the link leaving the old content, wait a month or so then add fresh content with the new branded link.

    You should use LSI keywords variations and stopwords, mispellings, etc on anchors.

    What do you mean exactly by that?
    - A sudden drop in ranking for the keyword you used in the anchor text
    - A manual action with a message in your GSC

    A good rule of thumb is to never use the same anchor text twice.

    More so if you are hammering away at a site with thousands of blackhat links. You should be using (tens of) thousands of longtails anyway, or at least as many relevant ones you can fine. If you are really building a lot of links (like 100k+) then I would go so far as to say it might be wise to add completely random dictionary words to some of your longtails. Or to combine/merge various longtails with eachother to "generate" unique ones.

    Because percentage of exact match keywords is very high if I look into ahrefs as well as in GSC. Also keyword which i was targeting gained rankings & was on first page within 3 weeks after starting building links. But as Google updates came dropped the rankings for it drastically & now it is somewhere on 20th page.

    based on ahref for your primary keyword, what is the exact match ratio for the top 3 websites? what is yours?
