What do you mean by anchor text?Anchor text is the clickable text in a hyperlink. SEO best practices dictate that anchor text be relevant to the page you're linking to, rather than generic text. The blue, underlined anchor text is the most common as it is the web standard, although it is possible to change the color and underlining through html code.

Anchor text is the clickable text generally links on websites. It is often of blue color or underlined. It stands apart from the rest of the text and just as you click on it, it leads you to another page of the same website or a kind of a backlink that leads you to a different website. If it leads to some other page of the same website that provides information and is relevant to the content on the page it landed you on then it surely bags you a better rank on the search engines.
If it leads you to another site and the page rank of the site from which you were guided is good then this page rank juice flows to your domain which again is of great help. But you have to be careful with these links or anchor text
* It should not include generic text like "click here " or "go to " as people often avoid clicking on to it
* on the other hand you should also avoid to use naked links as it can be considered as spamming by google
* Exact match is often preferred as it has relevance with the page or topic being discussed
* make sure not to stuff it with too many keywords as that again will be considered a spam
* also a particular page should not have may anchor texts
* they should be short
All in all they should have relevance with the subject as if they annoy the users it can even disappoint google thereby laying a negative impact on your website rank. These are SEO tactics that require professional expert monitoring. For unmatched SEO services at the most affordable prices the ideal place is FODUU web design company in India
