Whats your opinion on this article? http://www.gotchseo.com/anchor-text/

It says you need 40% brand name anchors.

I would say that the information from that site are wrong, about the brand name anchors I think that he considered the money keywords and money keyword percent is recommended to be smaller than 40%, and about generic keywords they recommend 20% which is totally wrong.


The generic keywords should be minimum 60%, most of SEO experts use 80-90% generic keywords to make the backlink profile as natural as possible, many people write a lot of things about anchor text, but they never make any tests.

Hello Mooton, don't spend too much time finding the right percentage for anchors, our tests shows that is good to have about 70% or more generic keywords and the rest of anchor percentage is not so important as long you have many generic anchors.


If you try to investigate a site that have all backlinks made naturally by people that have no idea what SEO means, you will realize that 90% of backlinks will be generic keywords, so to make a natural backlink profile make sure you have many generic keywords added to this section : 




by default it exists 7 generic keywords in that cell, you can find more generic keywords here (look for orange color post made by Joshua).
