Can anyone advise me on how many backlinks you should have before altering your link text to use different key words/phrases?

Some still say over 100. I think it is a lot lower than that. Mix them up at around 20. You can do alot of kw variations that will still pull traffic. Even if it is as simple as adding a stop word. (a, the,and...)

Right now I am on a project for my client.
He asked me to use 10 different keywords for his 10 (one way) links... is it a good practice? If not, what can be an optimal strategy in this case?

I personally mix about 5-8 anchor variations with about 10 different description written ones and randomize them, as usually get links myself by hand.

If I do not alter my Link text and Description at all for say, 100 links, against 'n' number of variations in permutation and combination, what am I doing wrong?

How does variation help in Link Building?

See this Google patent...

Information retrieval based on historical data [appft1.uspto.gov]

My emphasis:
[0119] According to an implementation consistent with the principles of the invention, information regarding unique words, bigrams, and phrases in anchor text may be used to generate (or alter) a score associated with a document. For example, search engine 125 may monitor web (or link) graphs and their behavior over time and use this information for scoring, spam detection, or other purposes. Naturally developed web graphs typically involve independent decisions. Synthetically generated web graphs, which are usually indicative of an intent to spam, are based on coordinated decisions, causing the profile of growth in anchor words/bigrams/phrases to likely be relatively spiky.

I would suggest not mixing more than 10-20 links per anchor as targeting high volume can represent anchor spamming in google.

Thoughts?
