50% of links brand name, rest a variety of 30-40 kws/variations Overheard at SMX West 2014 martinibuster msg:4653328 3:09 pm on Mar 12, 2014 (gmt 0) Here is a link to a ost that was publicly shared in Facebook. [ facebook.com] It was a paraphrase from a session at SMX West 2014.
When building links, Page One Power recommends: 50% of links brand name, rest a variety of 30-40 kws/variations #smxwest I wasn't there so I can't comment on the veracity of that quote. But there it is. What's your opinion on assigning a percentage to anchor text?

Cannot see the FB post now. CainIV msg:4655250 6:32 am on Mar 19, 2014 (gmt 0)
We use the same percentage, give or take, but also factor in industry aggregate levels. Crush msg:4656196 10:15 am on Mar 22, 2014 (gmt 0)
Yeah agree. Even more and the rest with longtail and very small % exact. fom2001uk msg:4685436 4:31 pm on Jul 6, 2014 (gmt 0)
I feel the same way about this as I do about keyword density - it just doesn't make sense, there is no magic ratio. The main thing to focus on is avoiding money keywords. Keep it simple, keep it natural.
