    Search engines (specifically Google) will use the anchors as an indicator of the page's topic a web page is linking to. This will determine which keywords they will rank the site for and therefore determines the quality/relevancy of the traffic a site gets.

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.
