    Anchor text is that clickable and visible text which is pointed to another URL within the same website or to the different site. In other words, it's a clickable text in a hyperlink.

    Anchor text will always “matter” as long as backlinks matter. Prior to the Penguin update in 2012, anchor text was one of the easiest ways for Google to understand the relevancy of any given website.

    Anchor text is the clickable text in a hyperlink. SEO best practices dictate that anchor text be relevant to the page you're linking to, rather than generic text. The blue, underlined anchor text is the most common as it is the web standard, although it is possible to change the color and underlining through html code.

    Anchor text is the visible, clickable text of a link. It usually appears in a different color than the surrounding text and is often underlined. Good anchor text tells the reader what to expect if they click on the link. Getting your anchor text right increases the chance of someone clicking on your link, and helps search engines by giving them context.
