"Joomla Development Services Company" Try to use this in Meta Title and H1 this will target both keywords, As concerned as Anchors so its depend on what type of backlinks you're making, Like if you make backlinks from blog comments then I prefered you do not use the exact keyword it will be harmful for you, use Branded anchor in this case. Also keep in mind the anchor ratio because SEO is totally changed now as compared to previous 4-5 years and google track each and everything to control spam, So you don't have to use exact anchor first, Try to get few links from generic anchor, partial match anchors, LSI anchors and then go for exact match anchor, Make sure exact match anchor ration will be 1% of your total no# of backlinks Anchors.

Let me know if you've any question  :)

Exact keyword match:
Each of your pages and posts is optimized for certain keywords. So if your target keyword is “vacations in Portugal,” exact keyword match anchor text would be “vacations in Portugal.”

While the occasional exact match anchor text can do wonders for your ranking, it also has the potential to land your website in the penalty danger zone.

Partial keyword match:
Instead of using the exact same keywords that you’re optimizing for, a partial keyword match anchor text means using a slight variation of those words.

This appears much more natural than an exact match.

Using the example above, a partial keyword match might be “best Portugal vacations,” “guide to vacations in Portugal,” “this post about Portugal vacations,” etc.

This is a much safer way to include the keywords you want in your anchor text.

Branded
Using a brand name is generally good practice in anchor text. This means using any combination of the company name as the anchor text for the backlink.

For example, branded anchor text for us would be Monitor Backlinks.

You could even use a partial match for branded keywords, including other words like “this post on Monitor Backlinks” or “learn more about Monitor Backlinks.”

Naked links
Naked links don’t actually include any words at all. A naked link is just taking the actual URL and using that as the anchor text, for example: http://monitorbacklinks.com/

Generic
We see examples of generic anchor text in backlinks all over the internet. Basically, this means avoiding any keywords by using call-to-action words like “click here,” “find out more” or “go here.”

While this is safe anchor text, it will not do anything to help improve your SEO.

Image alt text

When you put a link with a picture, what does Google count as the anchor text?

It will use the alt text that you include for the picture.
