    Anchor text is simply the text used to represent a hyperlink. Anchor text is used to make links more attractive and to make it easier for the search engine to index backlinks in relation to specific keywords.

    Anchor text is visible and clickable portion of any hyperlink, it is use to inform visitors about the hyperlink. People use keyword on anchor text, so with more click on that keyword link they can get more rank on search engine. It is very helpful to enhance website ranking through the targeted keyword on search engine.

    I Think:- 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. Since 1998, some web browsers have added the ability to show a tooltip for a hyperlink before it is selected. 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. However, also other services apply the basic principles of anchor text analysis. 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.

    According to the new crawling algorithm (web spam) of Google, we should not add same anchor in every post containing same keywords. Google will consider it spamming

    Anchor text is the hyper linked words on a web page - the words you click on when you click a link. It's important because, it tells search engines what the page is about. Used wisely, it helps boost your rankings in search engines, especially in Google.

    In my opinion Anchor text is the text used to describe a link when turning it into a hyperlink using HTML or XHTML coding. For example, if a web page had a link which the web page creator wishes to hide under text, the HTML code will turn a word or a phrase into anchor text, and that will work just like a normal link would. Anchor text is a valuable search engine optimization tool because the word or phrase used in anchor texts can pertain directly to the landing page content, or be one of the major keywords that the web page is trying to rank for. Anchor text is also heavily weighted in search engine algorithms, as algorithms look for the most relevant results for a search query and anchor texts are frequently relevant to the content of the landing page.

    Yeah you are rightly said about anchor text but after penguin update you have to bring some variation in anchor text to get backlinks otherwise crawler will consider it spamming.

    Simply getting links from many other websites is not enough for your website to rank well in the search engines. The quality of your anchor text will play a huge factor in ranking your pages for specific keywords, especially competitive ones.

    Linking phrase or keywords (text), sometimes called anchor text, is the clickable phrase or keywords (text) that takes people to another page or resource.

    Penguin's not going to hit all of your links in anchor texts. Don't worry about that. What the update is suggesting is that you should diversify your anchor text. You have to use some stop words every once in a while. When you're ranking for a keyword like "dentists california," you don't just keep building links with that as an anchor text all the time. That wouldn't look natural at all. You can diversify by using "dentists in california", or the "dentists in california".
