The anchor tag is an important part of good SEO practices. It signifies a clickable & visible keyword which leads to another page. Anchor tags are used to drive the user to a different page/document/ image or to content on the same page if the content is very long.

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 colour and underlining through HTML code.

It is used to define the beginning and end of a hypertext link. Search engines use the tag to determine the subject matter of the destination URL. Users click on the anchor text to reach the link target. A hyperlink that you add to your site can either point to other pages on your site (that’s an internal link) or to pages on other websites (that’s an external link). By providing for a meaningful anchor text, you help search engine crawlers and users understand what the target page is all about.

Anchor text is the part of a link that is visible to users and it is important for SEO for many reasons. What you write as anchor text, for both internal and external links, can positively or negatively influence your rankings.

You can put your targeted keywords as anchor text in blog submission, articles, commenting, website and at other places.

Search engines use external anchor text (text other pages use to link to your site) as a reflection of how other people view your page - and by extension, what your pages may be about. While website owners typically can't control how other sites link to theirs, “you can make sure that anchor text you use within your own site is useful, descriptive, and relevant.”
