    The anchor text, link label 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.

    Anchor text helps your site to get a targeted keyword for your sites search engine ranking position. If you target your keyword by using anchor text it will show up in the search result page of search engine. That way you can be click and visited by people who search for a particular keyword that relates to you. Do keyword analysis for this to help you choose a better keyword to be anchored.

    The clickable text part of a hyperlink. The text usually gives visitors or search engines important information on what the page being linked to is about.

    There should be limits to repeated anchor text. Make your anchor text varied but still related to a web page's content. Too much optimization could get a website penalized for it.

    Anchor texts are 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.

    Anchor text is the link inserted on the keywords. It is preferable to use anchor texts in the website from where dofollow links can be taken for getting the maximum benefits in terms of keyword rankings.

    The anchor text is the visible, clickable text in the hyperlink. The words of the anchor text are very important as it often determines which ranking the link will receive from the search engine.

    Anchor text is readable text that contains a hyperlink; searchers click on the text and are taken to the contained link.
