What is Anchor Text?

The user visible text of a link. Search engines use anchor text to indicate the relevancy of the referring site and of the link to the content on the landing page. Ideally all three will share some keywords in common.

For example

< a href="http://www.webtoolhub.com/" >This is the anchor text< /a >
