    I have seen many post about anchor text and other for good raking but I am confused. Should I use proper anchor text to link the articles within my websites also? Or it should be used while linking to other domains? Also should I use do follow links to link an article within my post ? Should like a Noob question but it is a noob question :p =D .

    When search engine bot crawls your website page, it renders through links and content version of web page. So, it also crawls all the links with the text that are on the page.
    Anchor text becomes most important to use in linking your website pages. That may help to increase certain keywords rank.

    And yes you can use ******** links to link an article.

    Yes, you should use proper anchor text for internal links. Use links that are natural for the readers. Ensure that you're having a reasonable number of internal links only. And yes, do-follow your links are good.

    Do-follow your internal links and No-follow your external links in order to keep juice in your website.

    My small experience show that ******** internal links has ranking power. I am tempted to believe that the ranking algorithms of search engines do not discriminate between internal and external links. Why am I believing this? Because I have seen pages from Amazon ranking # 1 in Google SERP without a single external link to it. It is ranking # 1 because of powerful internal links from Amazon itself. This internal links makes it outrank pages with 1000s of external links.

    or mabye it's the extremly high domain authority where google rightly says: hey..they are probably looking for a amazon link and not some crapy review site that was created 5 days ago. who knows ;-)

    I think the internal links works for all sites and not authoritative Amazon, wikipedia etc. I launched a new WP site and the tag pages started ranking and not the main posts. Why? The tag pages have internal links from other posts where the tag is use, and these internal links gives the tag pages more edge ahead of the main blog posts.

    I cannot follow your logic. You are decuding things from false assumptions.
    the fact that amazon is #1 for any given keyword without backlinks could have a million reasons. None of them leading to your assumption that there was no difference between internal and external links.

    that being said, there are ways to show that internal links r important
