Anchor text is a label of link and Google has recently announced that it will reduce its dependence on anchor text until it has minimal effect.. The basic thing of a backlink is to get referral traffic from other website so, if you are getting traffic from your related website then you will get rank for sure.

In its basic form anchor text is the highlighted text that takes you to a page that it links to. For example if you see a clickable link that says "check out my site" and when you click on that text it takes you to a website, then the anchor text in that case is "check out my site".

This is not a backlink just simply the name of the text that takes you to another site.

I hope that was the answer you were looking for.

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.

That is just the word or phrase you are linking to the particular page. For example: have a baby - the anchor text is baby and that leads to a webpage related to babies.
Keep learning!

Anchor text is clickable text and it should be relevant to the page you are linking to lets say for an example,
if you want to suggest SEO company, you can write like this "SEO company in surat"

and if you are posting a link which is not relevant to anchor text, you should post it without anchor text.

The anchor text is what we want to tackle today. This is the blue underlined text that is clickable and will take you to another webpage to which it is pointing to. There have been many controversies and exchange of ideas surrounding anchor text – some swear by its effectiveness, while others proclaim its death.

Recently, Google has announced that it will gradually reduce its dependence on anchor text until it has minimal effect. Lots of sources have given infographs about the future of SEO factors – and it clearly shows that anchor text is in rapid decline.

This is anchor text < a href="link goes here"> this is anchor text < /a >
This is a simple as possible. If you have any other question feel free to ask.
But this is pretty much how you write the anchor text.

Anchor text is useful and common practice when back links building.
