For more details, you can search in Wiki or google. Anchor text, telling from its name, is the text between Anchors(<a>tag in html). As the following example,

<a href=”http://www.goabercrombie.com/”>Abercrombie Store</a>

The red text Abercrombie Store is the anchor text for this hyperlink (or text link as it is sometimes called).

In SEO, we often use Anchor text and the hyperlink to do backlinks, which can help up to improve the PR value in Google.

Anchor text is the visible, click-able text in a hyperlink. The words comprised in the anchor text can work out the ranking that the page will obtain by search engines. Your anchor text should really include the key word you are trying to target.

Anchor text are the words that you see highlighted in blue and underlined when you are at a website. There is code behind the anchor text that takes you to a specific webpage when clicked. The html code for this is as follows:

<a href="http://YourWebsite.com">the text you want your visitors to see</a>

Generally we consider our keywords as anchor text, because we put link on our keywords with the help of anchor tag <a> and </a>. So the the text between the anchor tag is considered as anchor text.
