    It's a word or phrase that is usually keyword relevant to your site and that you code so that it becomes a clickable link. You can do that by using simple HTML:

    <a href="YourSiteHere.com">ANCHOR WORD OR PHRASE</a>

      You usually see the links in web sites, so the text which is used in that link is called anchor text.

      Here is the example of how to write anchor text:

      <A HREF="http://www.warriorforum.com">WarriorForum</A>

      Here in that example the WarriorForum used between the tags is anchor text.

      Use anchor text onsite to link to other pages, forms etc. keep anchor relevant to destination page. Use off page anchor text to create inbound links for kws you are trying to improve your ranking on.

        Can anyboby tell me if the words used for these anchor text links should be from titles or keywords from your article or specifically KW's of your destination page i.e. your main KW on your website?
        Thanks

          The anchor text needs to be words you're trying to rank for!

          There you go, I just gave you the secret! Now go and take some action!

          When using articles, use anchor text in the page body and resource/author box. You will not be able to post article with anchor text in titles. Each article site has its own rules for anchor texts, some allow 3 in the body and 3 in the resource boxes, other allow one in the resource/author box. They can be used for your domain home page / for kws you want to rank your home page for or deep pages/xxx/xxx for more specific terms.

    It is what's printed on your boat's anchor (normally the manufacture of the anchor).
