    Any link that is clickable and redirects to a respective web page is considered as link anchor text. For example Career Bolster is a link anchor text where in Career Bolster is the link where as http://www.careerbolster.com is the URL where it is redirected.

    How did he get that?
    <a href="http://www.careerbolster.com">Career Bolster</a>

    This can be used to target relevant pages from within your current page. Search engines use this text to help determine the subject matter of the linked to document.
    It is a metric for determining ranking.

    I think it is important to note that link anchor text does not have to match the URL it is linking to. For example, if careerbolster.com wanted to rank for "professional advice" or "online career advice", those phrases can also be used in links to the relevant page from an article, blog post, or video. In each case, the phrase being linked from is considered link anchor text.

    Anchor tag is a clickable link via which the link redirects you to another page by clicking.
    <a href="you website url">clickable link</a>

    Anchor text is a hyper link which is redirect you to another page. If you would create do-follow back link giving anchor text to your keyword, it is very useful for your keyword ranking on SERP.

    The anchor text, link label, link text, or link title is the visible, clickable text in a hyperlink. The words contained in the anchor text can determine the ranking that the page will receive by search engines.

    Hello Friend,

    Anchor text is the visible characters and words that hyperlinks display when linking to another document or location on the web.
