    Anchor text is the exact text that is used as your hyperlink....what readers click on...usually related to the term you are trying to rank for

    sometimes the exact keyword is used other times it is a term that is closely related to your keyword you are trying to rank for....sometimes your website URL is used....diversity is the key for good SEO results

    Anchor text is that Keyword which are you trying to rank in search engines.

    No.^^ Anchor text is simply the text used in links, for example <a>Insert Anchor Text here </a>. (Couldn't put full tags due to spam detector)

    For god-sake you are here from 2014 and you don't know what is an anchor text?
    What did you all this time on BHW, following Pewep journey?

    So is this ... http://www.youtube.com

    If your keyword is midget Porn .. It could go something like this;

    Hey, check out this awesome http://www.youtube.com

    http://www.youtube.com

    http://www.youtube.com

    They are all variations of anchor texts. It's basically the text that is hyperlinked. You don't want all the anchor texts to be your keyword. Do some keyword, some related keywords, some raw URL, some random words like 'here'

    Anchor text is your business, Your Main Primary keywords, which you want to rank in Google. Suppose you have travel business, and looking to rank high in Google, what will be your main primary Anchor text "India Tour" if someone search with the india tour and your site in Google front page positions #1 or #2 #3 means a lot business in your hand.
