    There are simply two anchors that help make the core of all web links. According to them, all links start with a “source” anchor and then point to a “destination” anchor which is typically a web page of some sort.

    According to me the quality of your anchor text plays a key role in link building. This element represents the visible text in a hyperlink.Most SEO experts know the value of a quality backlink, but many of them fail to understand that the anchor text of a particular link is almost always the most important factor in search engine optimization.

    Anchor text refers to the words that make up a link; they are the words that turn your mouse cursor into a finger-pointing hand. For example, in the sentence, "I really like to go to this store," "this store" is anchor text for the link.

    For example...

    If I was going to link to this forum and my link said, "SEO Blackhat Forum", then the anchor text would literally be: SEO Blackhat Forum.

    Hope that made sense!
