What is a good link profile?
What is a good, or "round" link profile for a page?
What i mean is, how much % should have the desired anchor text like "bass fishing guide" and how many should vary or have generic names so that the link profile is more natural and less artificial?
Thanks I really appreciate it!

This is an interesting question and one which definitely does not have a conclusive public answer. There was a great case study posted on SEOmoz a few weeks ago, but as the SEOchat's forum rules are quite strict, I'm not allowed to post the link to it here The name of the article is "Which Type of Link Anchor Text is the Most Effective? [An Experiment]"

In short, the anchor text is your keywords which you wanna promote mainly.

it depends on the rules of the site, but its better to contribute or share something and not just dropping links..

The best link profile: Back links Within the content on a home page of your similar NICHE.
The better: Back links within the content from your similar NICHE.
A Good: A mix of back links from the sites of your NICHE (no matter where it is placed, it may be on a page somewhere deeper, it may be through the image link, it may be through the text link.).
At last if you have got even some irrelevant links but you are ranking well you can think it as a good link profile. There is no link that you can say BAD, you have to choose them based on your relevancy. Whatever is relevant to your website is a Good back link for your website. Just think about a link as a connection or friendship in real life and decide who is good for you as a friend.

The use of "home page" here could be misleading. Home page of a site is not necessarily the best place where the link can be from.

I think when looking at the link profile as a whole, in contrast to looking at the quality of each individual link, diversity is the key. With a natural focus on your main targeted keywords and niche, the profile should display diversity in terms of type of links, source of links (domains where the links are from) and property of links (anchor text for example).

I have outranked some sites with "good link profile" its really depending on the type of links you get.
You don't need to have so many nofollow links, so many forum links, so many this and that. If you someone get a couple of high authority link, then you are in business.
Back in my "credit check" days where I worked for Exprerian, we had a new site that offered credit monitoring protection and we had just put up the site. We linked to it from Experians' main websites, all of them are high authority and pagerank, and then an interview and a couple of links from major online newspaper. We had no other links but we were rocking the SERPs simply because of all these links.
This is from a few years ago I know things have changed but my point is that "focus on quality and authority" of your links. If Google trusts them and their anchor text, then you improve ranking.

I thinks it is a good idea to keep your profile across at least two-three lines. It necessarily do not have to be a big paragraph, but a couple of supporting lines around your link text is always good. It looks more generic.

No other page than the Home Page of particularly any website, gets more Back Link hence the MOST Trust and Authority of Search Engines. So how could any other page be the more relevant than Home Page (Please note I have already mentioned about the Same NICHE).

I am also wondering about anchor text and such. How much should be the desired anchor text and how many links should be generic. Just looking for a desirable profile.

A good link profile is permanent, comes from a lot of different sources, and is constantly growing. It should also include links to inner pages, and a small percentage of nofollow links too.

"Whatever is relevant to your website is a Good back link for your website." I like this
