Anchor text is the actual text on a link to your web site. Instead of a link on a web site saying 'click here' and linking to your site, or simply listing your web site name ideally you have text that describes what's on your site.

Anchor text refers to the words that conjure a link; they're the words that flip your mouse pointer into a finger-pointing hand. As an example, within the sentence, "I really like to go to this store," "this store" is anchor text for the link.

You have heard about using anchor text in your article backlinks but you're not really sure what it is or you're not sure of how important it is when it comes to the eventual success of your website. Yeah, I know that it can be a pain to create links using anchor text but you will find that it is more than worth the effort when it comes to getting your website to rank high in the search engine results and it can be one of the most powerful ways that you can help your website to become successful that you will find.
While it may be possible for your website to rank rather well with links back to your site that do not include anchor text the amount of effort and time that this is going to take is just rediculous when compared to how long it will take if you do use backlinks that contain anchor text with your chosen keyword in it. The difference is simply night and day.
This Is What I Am All About! - What your anchor text does is literally tell search engine spiders and the search engines that these spiders report back to, what your site is all about. For instance, if the anchor text for the backlink to your site reads "plumbing atlanta ga", the search engines will take this into account when ranking your site for websites about plumbing in Atlanta, Georgia. Get it?
Is That All You Are About? - You might think, "Great! All I have to do is publish a ton of articles about with my chosen keyword as anchor text and I'll be golden!" Unfortunately, many other people have had this same idea and this has caused many search engines to look at backlinks and many of the other ways that people try to game the system a little more carefully.
Using just one keyword for your anchor text is one sure way to send a red flag to the search engines that you are up to something and that you're just trying to pull one over on the search engines. This is why it is important to choose some alternate keywords and preferably some related keywords to your main keyword that you wish to rank for. Just a little tip for you there!
Call Me, Baby! - In addition to search engine optimization, using anchor text is a great way to provide a powerful call to action for your readers at the end of your article or on your website. A link that says "click here" is pretty much self explanitory but many folks miss out on this easy way to improve your click through rate and bring more visitors to your website.

Anchor texts are important for search engines which include links content. In my opinion it is like a hashtag. On the other hand search engines compare your anchor text profile with industry average in terms of brand, compound and money.

The anchor text, link label, link text, or link title is the visible, clickable text in a hyperlink. The words contained in the anchor text can determine the ranking that the page will receive by search engines.

Not all links have anchor texts because it may be obvious where the link will lead due to the context in which it is used. Anchor texts normally remain below 60 characters. Different browsers will display anchor texts differently. Usually, web search engines analyze anchor text from hyperlinks on web pages. Other services apply the basic principles of anchor text analysis as well. For instance, academic search engines may use citation context to classify academic articles,and anchor text from documents linked in mind maps may be used too
